Peace, Love and Black Power

David and Mickey talk NBA and WNBA wildcat strikes, the love America has for Black athletes and entertainers, and how that love can fade when the attention turns to an everyday Black citizen. Then they hash out the origins of – and distinctions between – the terms “Black power,” “black supremacy” and the FBI-coined “Black identity extremist.”
