This episode could not come at a better time. Guest of our show and host of his own, Speak for Yourself on Fox Sports, Jason Whitlock [@JasonLeeWhitlock], brings his outspoken perspective on shit. This week we talk race, football, policing, and the evolution of what Whitlock refers to as the “cyber human”. According to this former Ball State athlete, when you dumb every incident down to 140 characters, the public fills in the blanks. You are left with callous conclusions about entire demographics that defy rationality. How do we avoid this divisive practice? A little personal responsibility goes a long away, and you can start by listening to this great discussion.
One of the highlights of our chat with Jason is his pointed solutions to the issues on all of our minds. Tired of the political circus? Start being honest with yourself about how you form your opinions. Want to enact real change? Money can be a pretty persuasive tool. And probably the most well stated synopsis of athletes recent showboating. As Whitlock reminds us “Kneeling before the National Anthem is the easiest fucking thing you can do that accomplishes nothing”.
EMPOWER YOUR PERFORMANCE.
Like what you’ve heard from Jason? You can find him on Fox Sport’s, Speak for Yourself, at 2pm EST. He’s also available on twitter under the name @WhitlockJason but as per our discussion with him…don’t let 140 characters be the primary means of news and information.
A strength and conditioning coach since 2009, Cali has worked with numerous athletes spanning from rugby players to cross country skiers. Almost immediately after finding CrossFit in 2010, she was introduced to a program that better suited her athletic goals. With her existing background in powerlifting and football, she became a natural devotee to CFFB/PowerAthlete and testament to it's effectiveness. In 2012, she left D.C. and headed for the state named after her to be a part of the CrossFit Football Seminar Staff and a Jedi of Power Athlete HQ. Cali currently resides in Seattle where she works full time in law enforcement.
