This week we talk to ten year NBA veteran and author Etan Thomas about why he attended a protest against the "blackballing" of free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick at NFL headquarters as well as the role of Kaepernick's black critics in the media. Also, we speak to economist Andy Schwarz who has "concocted a plan to radically challenge the college industrial complex." We also have words about the racist murder of Richard Collins III on the UMD campus.
