Jackie Robinson on silence and black athletes

My friend Chuck Modiano (a great follow on sports and politics, by the way, @ChuckModi1), just posted this quote from Jackie Robinson, circa 1970cr6-dhzweaaeznu

As I’ve previously mentioned, my friend Matt Andrews and are about to launch our new podcast, the “Brofessors.” (Feel free to make fun or otherwise provide feedback on that). Matt is a legendary professor at UNC, teaching on the intersection between sports, history and politics to rapt classrooms. That intersection will be the focus of our hopefully illuminating and mildly entertaining conversations. The first one, which should be available tomorrow, is about Colin Kaepernick and the history of athletes and protest.
