Another part of my passion against boxing & football is that it has become an exploitative way for brown & black kids to "make it out of the hood"...

Just like we look back at gladiator fights as barbaric, we will look back at football the same way.

No amount of padding stops the brain from jostling around in the skull & unfortunately one of the few things that CAN help, cannabis, is prohibited by the league. Many players not only develop CTE, but the pain they put their bodies through leaves many of them hooked on painkillers, etc...

https://www.bostonglobe.com/opinion/...STL/story.html

"As parents become more cautious, football will be left to communities with fewer options. This has always been true of boxing, where the gladiators tend to have nothing to lose. The current popularity of football on television and the high salaries of players mask the sportís stratifications as surely as Muhammad Aliís dancing in the ring concealed the brutality of boxing. Majority African-American teams essentially beat one anotherís brains out in front of mostly white crowds and the white skybox elite."

Can I also add that this show reminded my why I love you guys so much & everyone should listen to KATG.

I find myself agreeing with Chemda on almost everything most of the time, but there is that once in a blue moon that I agree with Keith, & being able to listen to both of your POVs is def part of the secret sauce that keeps me hooked!

LOVE YOU GUYS!!!

I would say a fair analogy to a kid playing tackle football is a teenager aggressively speeding when driving a car. They both raise the risk of serious damage.

By the way, most teenagers are terrible at risk analysis. Heck many adult are poor at risk analysis too.

The difference is most parents/adults aren't encouraging kids to speed when driving a car, but they will encourage to hit the opposing team harder & to just "shake it off" when they get concussions...

Good old Science backs up Shane's "common sense" argument that MMA is significantly safer than boxing when it comes to the most serious type of injury because in boxing 80% of the time you're attacking the head with strikes, while in MMA there are many other options for how to score points/finish a match.

https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...1106062447.htm

"... MMA fighters face a slightly higher risk of minor injuries. Boxers, however, are more likely to experience serious harm from concussions and other head trauma, loss of consciousness, eye injuries, smashed noses and broken bones.

"Yes, you're more likely to get injured if you're participating in mixed martial arts, but the injury severity is less overall than boxing. Most of the blood you see in mixed martial arts is from bloody noses or facial cuts; it doesn't tend to be as severe but looks a lot worse than it actually is."

I cringed for a lot of this episode.

I did a pageant when I was 8 and did Barbizon at 14. I also have friends who still do pageants.

They aren't all dumb and vain. My friend is a military Captain pursuing a law degree.

The winner of Miss USA is a chemist that works for a division of NASA. She just isn't versed in social justice. She also clarified on Good Morning America the next day. I can see how nerves could have effected her, she even had a nervous laugh in the audio. She is a scientist so she probably doesn't have the same experience speaking in front of crowds as yall comedians. And she was in front of the world.

Just because a girl is into makeup and looking pretty doesn't mean she cant also be smart or that she has some kind of internal conflict.

That false dichotomy is annoying.

I also want to point out the dangerous thinking about little girls in makeup.

Its interesting that Chemda didn't fight the thought that they are more at risk of attack by pervs.

Pervs don't care if little girls are wearing makeup or not. They are not at any more risk than if they were in any other extracurricular activity.

Pedos like kids. They go wherever kids gather. It is not specific to pageants.

Also the notion that by wearing makeup that ratchets up the "asking for it" -- makeup or not anyone that thinks "she's asking for it" will think it, makeup or not... I didn't get into makeup like I am till a few years ago, my mid 30s.

I've been harassed by men since I was 13...
