This week we’re talking about Kareem Hunt. Per ESPN “The Kansas City Chiefs announced they were cutting Hunt on Friday, after video of the assault was published by TMZ. In the video, Hunt and the woman trade words in a hallway and are separated by several people on multiple occasions. Hunt pushes the woman, who responds by hitting him in the face.” This isn’t even close to being new news if you follow the NFL at all, but because of recent events in the US, the lens we look at situations have become (unfortunately) more and more callous. We discussed how this situation fits into the overall narrative the NFL has been trying to hide and also the remnants of our (black people’s) past treatment in this country. Finally, we went off on a tangent and brought it back around full circle to the original subject….because that’s how we do.
