Redspin Sports looks at the connections between the U.S. sports industry & the political, social & economic forces that sustain U.S. imperialism, both at home and abroad. We examine the history of activist athletes and this generation's reemergence of athlete activism, the history of American football through a critical class struggle lens, and the politics & labor dynamics that characterize the modern pro sports leagues. Highlighting the connections between billionaire team owners, the permanent war state, real estate gentrifiers and slum lords, private prisons, education privatization, police militarization & much more; all of which are critical to fully understanding the social and political forces that define our time.

    Robert E. Lee HS Name Change?, Sports & Lasting Legacy of Ahistorical "Lost Cause" Mythology

    Play Episode Listen Later Apr 2, 2021 16:48


    In this segment of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman are joined by Nate Wallace, co-host of Red Spin Sports podcast for another edition of our weekly segment “The Red Spin Report.” They discuss efforts to remove the name of Confederate general Robert E. Lee from Washington-Lee University in Virginia and Robert E. Lee High School in Jacksonville, Florida, as well as the intellectual bankruptcy of the “Lost Cause” narrative advanced by new-confederate factions.Nate coached high school football for the now (since desegregation & white flight) nearly all black Lee Generals (Jacksonville, Fla.) varsity football team in 2009 & 2010, and he connects how that experience -and the role team sports play more broadly in identity formation for players and alums- affects and complicates the issues of school names & mascots. As always, the social and political contradictions that exist as a natural byproduct of living under a fundamentally exploitative economic system that continues to fuel augmenting income & wealth inequality, are unpacked and explored within the context of the still ongoing battles over appropriately characterizing the Confederate government for what it was -and the logic of its reactionary ideology still is, a criminal enterprise built on naked economic exploitation, an unparalleled system of human trafficking, & the violently enforced bondage of the most basic human rights of enslaved African peoples. The enduring mythos of "The Lost Cause" is a testament to the power of white supremacy in these United States. Why? If not for the -racist decision- to abandon the promises made to emancipated peoples in the form of ending federal military reconstruction in 1877 (a decision long in the making by the time it became official), the militarily, but not necessarily ideologically, vanquished "redeemers of the South" never could have returned to power to institute a Jim Crow system of racialized terror in the 1880's and 1890's. Furthermore, "Lost Cause" propagandists such as the United Daughters of the Confederacy would not have had the political power to advance their ahistorical narratives into K-12 school curriculums across the states of the former Confederacy and beyond; it is precisely because of the UDC's ideological victory in being able to craft racist and classist narratives about the Civil War and what it was truly fought over (i.e. SLAVERY and the "rights" of slavers to expand their "peculiar institution" into the westward and rapidly expanding settler colonial geography of the mid 19th century United States).So the reality is as William Faulkner so accurately put it: "the past is not dead, in fact, it's not even past." Those words couldn't have been more true on Thursday, March 25th, in both the auditorium and overflow crowd in the adjacent library of Robert E. Lee High School in Jacksonville, Fla. Checkout the 90 seconds (I -Nate- could have managed better but was caught off guard after waiting nearly 4 hours to speak) I had to speak on this issue in the tweet below. Despite the self-criticism, it still gets at the core issue: the continued power of the fallacious "Lost Cause" narrative which tries to explain away why the "morally superior" Confederacy was vanquished on the battlefield. Those who ascribe to "Lost Cause" history are invariably delusional, masters of white "grievance politics," acting as if they are somehow "the victims" while ignoring and having contempt for all who dare point out the ahistorical contradictions their arguments rest upon. https://twitter.com/NateWallace9/status/1378023534048514054?s=20Recorded and aired on Friday, March 26th, 2021 in Washington, DC.If you enjoy Redspin Sports, please consider supporting our work on Patreon so we can produce more of it.

    Former Indiana Hoosiers player and Bob Knight assistant basketball coach, Dan Dakich, who now works for ESPN calling college basketball games and hosting a sports talk radio show on 107.5 FM "The Fan" in Indianapolis. At issue in this installment of Nate Wallace's weekly Redspin Report on Radio Sputnik's "BAMNecessary" with Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman, is Dakich's M.O. of attacking unpaid college athletes for "quitting," calling for Duke Basketball's (unpaid) Jalen Johnson a quitter for making a business decision to prepare for the 2021 NBA Draft, rather than continue playing this money grab of a college basketball season amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Even worse is Dakich's threatening sexual violence against End of Sport co-host and college professor, Johanna Mellis, and doxing fellow EOS co-host and professor Nathan Kalman-Lamb after being unable to respond to legitimate criticism regarding Dakich's latest disgusting remarks. We also discuss the New Cold War against China taking hold in Canada with a mainstream lawmaker's appeal that the 2022 Winter Olympic Games should be moved from China to Canada on human rights grounds concerning an alleged Uyghur Genocide; a claim made only by a right-wing evangelical zealot named Dr. Adrian Zenz, who is a bizarre and dangerous figure from the German Christian Right.https://canadiandimension.com/articles/view/canada-should-not-host-the-olympics-everCheckout some of the developments that have ensued in the days since we recorded. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...​https://www.newsobserver.com/article2...​https://thespun.com/more/sports-media...​https://www.thebiglead.com/posts/dan-...​https://www.indystar.com/story/sports...​https://twitter.com/marcisenberg/stat...​The Jalen Johnson opt-out is a totally legitimate decision the young man made given the fact that "loyalty" is never a two way street whenever a player's presence becomes something a university deems to be not in their interests.

    Max Blumenthal joins Mike & Nate to Discuss NFL & Apartheid Israel's Unholy Alliance (Part II)

    Please support our work on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/redspinsports​Part II features a series of #ApartheidIsrael​ #NFL​ whitewashing videos produced by groups ranging from Christians United for Israel to NFL Films. The insidiousness of this alliance is not only on full display, but brought into focus with the critical analysis you won't find in mainstream (political or sports) media. Redspin Sports founder Nate Wallace co-hosts Part II of this two-part special with Max Blumenthal, Editor of The Grayzone (@TheGrayzoneNews) and co-host of the Moderate Rebels (@Moderate_Rebels) podcast, & the co-host of Redspin Sports Michael Sampson, an organizer with the Jacksonville (Florida) Community Action Committee (@JaxTakesAction), working to galvanize public support around the demand for Community Control of the Police.The context for the discussion stems from our incredulity at the way in which some of the most far-right elements of the Israel Lobby have exploited the situation Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Desean Jackson created, and then found himself in the midst of a firestorm as a result, earlier this month when he re-shared anti-Semitic words in an Instagram Story from a sermon delivered by the Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakhan.Far-right Israeli lobby & Bibi Netanyahu P.R. firm, From the Depths, has cynically deployed the MAGA Trump devotee and corrupt New Jersey real estate developer & multi-millionaire, Edward Mosberg, to play a central role in the reeducation and potential "reclamation" of the 33 year-old Jackson. The problem centers around what we've learned about Mosberg and From the Depths founder, Jonny Daniels. Jackson agreeing to be educated on anti-Semitism by From the Depths' frontman, Edward Mosberg, means he'll be learning a lot more about the importance of embracing political Zionism than he will about seriously combatting anti-Semitism. This is evidenced by Mosberg's unabashed praise for the racist politics of Trump and Netanyahu, and From the Depths' record of providing what amounts to Jewish political cover for far-right Eastern European heads of state like Hungarian President, Viktor Orban, and Polish President Andrzej Duda; both of whom benefit greatly from having their domestic anti-Semitism whitewashed by From the Depths thanks to their staunch for Israel on the international stage. In short, opposition to Israel's political Zionist ethnocracy is NOT analogous to anti-Semitism! However, as this Redspin Sports special illustrates, this fact will hardly stop Netanyahu and his From the Depths lackeys from doing all they can to portray the two as being one in the same.The discussion portion of the program was recorded on July 12th, 2020, and was published to YouTube on July 31st, 2020.
