10:33 pm
ah ah, ah, how are you watching the stream coming to you today for my child who is in dow number. the story means were kicked out. today's episode milestone, but we focus on the lessons that we can clean them around was ration. it can be cold, don't we'll talk by you running any d c. i'm agree. you're going to want that. i'm going to go to fort
10:34 pm
janet my site. well, i think i'm ready to put i'm see how many welcome to the student. great. have you. i'm good. thanks. thank you. i just wanted to tap into thinking about why, what was the last time you saw that school story, some likely instant watching instant niga probably every day, every time we say a story coming in the news that's leaving the news. you think here it is a guy here it goes again. i'm the stories are around since i finished watching the book. i think we've already had time to put that story in as well. but that constant i'm, i'm constantly sort of evolving my view on for and stories in the news. just keep on inspiring and also making you want to have all the people discuss them and
10:35 pm
actually come to some conclusions about sports fall into a shame. like before going, thank you to do one with the last time you say yes, i think, i mean, it depends what aspect of life really. i mean there's challenges or struggles or a story, but i mean, i work a lot in the intersections of race and gender and sport, and quite often my beat is not a happy one. so when we talk about struggles, particularly for women, athletes are non binary athletes. that happens quite often, whether it's an issue of abuse, whether it's an issue, but in the quality of pay. i mean very specifically on a fund note i was having a very animated conversation with my colleagues at burn it all down this morning about the joy of saudi oman, a and we were speaking about some legal issues, football and the pre show. but just having that to talk about joy,
10:36 pm
now i tried very hard to incorporate joy and just some of my practice as a journalist. otherwise it would be very, very depressing. the world of sports, i mean, can be very depressing. so i try to insert that intentionally, panama conversation to be defensive, about what you, when you choose, either the depressing part of the joyful or whatever you want to share the lessons you have done. if you're new to jump into the comments section, part of the day. so what i'll start with the j with the faintest the tv we also we can issue the house on the to the biggest issue in my sport. i believe were connie facing, and i believe this is an all, there was a football from the cross rues all the way through, am to the top lives in a world, and from being ex player or to work in sports media. now i personally feel this one, and i think the biggest issue for me is racism, annapolis, alec, a broken record,
10:37 pm
but you would a for, for the euros for england and the free blood plasma, snip noise and abuse. they got off the back of that, the campaigns and that went in off that things like kick our racism. so racing the red card, the players taken me off before every match you would have for changes have been more clear in the game. but for me, it has been spoken about more, but no, no actual punishment or changes actually happened. i think more needs to be done. and it's a big, big issue in the game. the hope is stamped out and taken seriously. morsey going forward in football, on fulton or any possible is huge for what impact what most of what was wanting during the long or inter mall owns or on this is all seen. well is not impressed. well, actually support made an impact back on society after that because it was 3 things we saw in support from taking and they are huge scores, events,
10:38 pm
and from discussions around whether they should be taken for this i reactions which were commendable life. i felt of the players and the officials throughout bnb i and sometimes refusing to play if that was a necessary action. i think that sport was instructing society in some ways on, on how to behave and these things come from the top. i mean, i've said many times over the years, i've refused to go on as a report your correspondence and say, well, fee for you a for has had did out of fine over to spencer and was stadium closure. so what kit a club out of a competition. kick a nation out, not for a 1st minor offense, may be a you'd but you have legal difficulties dead. but then leads to be strong, actually comes from the top when in this country, on a sports program here, many of which aren't fit for purpose. there was a discussion about racism and they tried to have
10:39 pm
a grown up conversation. it didn't work because the grown up amongst them started talking about it coming from the top and from government level where taking in the was frowned upon. they were shut down because hang on, we're outside the sports bubble. every one is uncomfortable. i think that disgraceful, and i think that's where it comes on from the top. yes, progress has been made from when i started repulsing on football. crikey, at the end of the eighty's around $9090.00 worried a different society now. but my good this there still so much progress to be made and so much that we say on a daily basis that is wrong. so i'm just gonna jump in here and to say that i'm, i will agree to some parts that there has been progress made. but if you look at the demographics of football media, for example, it's white men. where is the progress? i haven't seen enough racial as you see sports journalists, i look like me. so in fact, who tells the story is as important as what the story is. and when we're
10:40 pm
confronting issues of racism or massage any in those intersections than i, i, i mean, i'm, you know, i'm not trying to be cynical here, but let's be realistic about this. also, i would like to quickly just tweak something that lee had mentioned. it wasn't the n b a that stood up after the murder of george floyd, it was actually the w and da and black women in that being that have set the blueprint for how anti black racism can be eradicated in sport. and let's not forget that because that's one of the problems that happens. black women are often excluded from these. and the 1st ally, the white ally, to kneel with calling copper. nick was in fact, megan repeated, it was a white gay woman. and she was on the cover of sports illustrated. so let's be careful how we chronicle this and, and we remember it. so as much as i would say that there has been a catalyst on the murder of george floyd was very instructive. it also made newsrooms and reporting rooms realize that they were badly equipped to handle discussions of racism. and like, let's not, as you know, how i realized sharing,
10:41 pm
sorry to jump in a not that you want to bring this up. i tell you how i realized, i know for a fact i realize because people will were phoned by bosses that lead to organizations and said we need to have a more diverse workforce off the mother of a black mine in america. and then i got a phone call specifically i got a phone calls, visit my for that reason that they were, and i got my, i won't agree, it's my lived experience. so what my point was, was that these discussions need to be had. but it's, it's not just about quickly hiring for a contract position and then laying off somebody cuz you're done with them. we haven't eradicated racism. this is not a post racial thing. and i think media needs to be quite responsible and need to understand how they're complicit. in these type of systems, i mean people are still absolutely, you know, writing terrible things and british sport media in particular. you know, like i think fits particular players get the i are particular players are, you know, dealt with in women's sport is essentially not covered in the ways that it needs to
10:42 pm
be. so literally very honest about that, when we talk to little bit actually who's making the decisions, this is the thing, don't you form we all fall into the tropical side. oh, well, that looks like a diverse on the screen that looks like a diverse world on a minute. who's making the decisions? some of the people making good decisions will have terrible track records of diversity. i'm just not making the white decisions anyway. are the many, you know, the winning awards for their coverage of such things as like law, smarter'n sport, whether the fully feel the we're employ lease thingy. if i may, some of what we're talking about isn't just the got me body for school is not just the sports authority is also how we as journalists on a sports correspondence handles stories to shoot, i wouldn't happen to have anything ever her ever is a free lance once she spoke to us a few hours ago, this is what she shared with us. and then immediately after erica finish his test.
10:43 pm
results of the problems that i see in sports is truly the coverage. generally speaking, sports journalist are either not encouraged to or not equipped to have conversations where sports intersects other entangled parts of our life. relationships were politics or education, or advocacy and social justice. so my solution would be at 1st, we hire more diverse journalists, who are able to cover and interweave sport stories with some of these other things . my 2nd solution is that we then train journalists ongoing to have these conversations in sports. what a joy to see miss. erica allah, who is single handedly created a media space called black rosie media. and she's absolutely right. i mean, she's a colleague and a friend, she's an afro let bina. and i think she brings i, you know, at a different identity to a newsroom or 2 coverage. and i think that's imperative in someone that covers,
10:44 pm
you know, whether it's football, it's basketball or ice hockey ones, ice hockey. i think this is really important. and in addition to, ah ha, hiring a diverse journalist what i'm looking for. and what my and as an instructor of journalism at trans toronto metropolitan university, i teach sport, media, and sports journalism. i'm not only encouraging my students to go be broadcasters and presenters. i would like them in decision making rooms. i would like them as editors, i would definitely like them as producers because the quality of the conversation that happens when you have racialized women as producers on a sports show is extremely different than if you don't. so i'm very, very clear on what my expectations are of my student students. and to also be very honest with themselves. do journalists have the ability to say, well, i'm going to amplify somebody else who doesn't look like me. i've never had that happen to me before to be quite honest. sure. are point. i was like, i mean that literally the exact point. i was my king size. you know, i mean,
10:45 pm
you know, you're agreeing with me please. yes. you know the agreement here because we have different experiences, but we have many of the side views because we're using our eyes are, is, and all brands and not every one in this industry. in fact, not pop hobby, anyone into sports industry sometimes seems to be one thing to do. there seems to be wanting to go deeper. you can look a little examples, like if hooliganism breaks out in football stadium, i wanted to ripple on the much. none got the story now you're going to have to deal with it. and one thing that really strikes me about you is that you're talking about. so to paraphrase you, but you know, creating spices and anew saying you're amazing. brilliant. had talked talking about you have to call those feel self cobalt a pulse will progress be when people don't have to do that the actually they succeed because of the system rather than despite it only i had
10:46 pm
a thought. yeah. and this came from these rainy and this when you said yes, i totally agree with me. hope the story math. and then as opposed to education, you discovered lee as he was talking about and thinking about so even on the instant what happened in 18 weeks for that story and was in yeah, i think part of a big part of writing this book was, you know, as a belfy, people in society need to listen more. so i just needed to listen to what was being said, and i needed to actually make sure that i spoke to people extensively who were affected sometimes more than me before i wrote anything. now, i like to think that i've been bold and i've tried, blazed during my career, which had up 30. they can tell us the story because we know the mileage is raina williams. that's not bad. it's important the context if i may,
10:47 pm
because it's the one time this is why i'm giving the context, is the one ton of bottle. i bottle there. i was going to tweet to say that sabrina williams behavior was disgraceful. the reason i was going to do that was always simple because it was, it was attention, pure and simple. no difference really from a john macavoy country. you know, what had his plans a probably just a tenant, sometimes a problem to being pompous, but i bottled it the reason it would have been, i promise you misconstrued because the amount of viral vices and this directed up my favorite tennis plant survey, you know, who was covering tight for me. i had so much otherwise, you know her background to know back story. we had virtue signaling, patronize in condescending journalists loaded journalists who were telling us, well look at the box or look what happened that night. i felt sorry for 9 be a soccer and in the book i talk about how it was her night. it was ruined. i what
10:48 pm
was happening here was the what subject that needs to be in the public all the time . but the long case. i have gone to friends, weren't friends, people in the media, people outside of the media and said, do i have the right to say this? do i have to write about it? and the answer i've got listened is late when you've experienced enough of base, you quickly come in for serena because you know what's coming towards her she well, i mean as somebody who is identifies very specifically as a racialized journalist, my experience will be different than we i don't need test source and ask friends i can just look with in my own experience and the way that i would have spoken of serena is quite differently. i would look at my position and my privilege and look at the history of massage and war against her in the, in, in the tennis media. i would look at the battle she's faced in terms of maternal black health. i would look at the way that she boycotted a specific tournament because the way or family was treated and i would still look
10:49 pm
at that. but then, more importantly, i think i would have deferred to other black sports journalists, and i would empathize their work one set of having to double check. you know, the moment you read this. ok, so i understand, let me just let me, let me finish here. i think that there's that different and you aside, i think there's a different way in which tennis media and sports media holds her to account. i can think of many different block out. they'd be at tennis, be an ice hockey, where black a racialized athletes are held to a different standard. and i don't necessarily feel that it's like required for me to add on to that. but like i said, and i will stick by this. i will amplify other racialized journalists who have lived experience in a window that i don't. and that's something that i believe is missing in the industry. it won't hurt me or my paycheck if i defer to somebody with lived experience on this issue. so part of my personal practice as a journalist is to amplify even more marginalized sports journalists, who may be black, who may have profound things to say about her technique about the mechanics,
10:50 pm
about the scale, but a ball. so about the context of what's happening here. and i think that's something that's missing greatly from sports journalism. there's too much ego. it's not about whether you li, personally, can write about it. it's whether the story is shared in a way that's responsible in take corporate harm reduction and is fair to the subject. our job is reporters is to report fairly and accurately and what we do, but also part of that. and what i teach my students is to amplify people in the margins which is part of the entire problem of sports media industry. it's not about white men with power talking about issues of, of, of substance for minorities. it's about whether those people in the margin. however, right to share their own experiences and do the same work and white men with power in that case. but she's signaling to, within an inch of their lives, it was really ghastly to say because actually it meant the result. nuance. there was no really proper research into what was going on. it was just telling the back
10:51 pm
story. and actually, i think, but that night does that more than that because what i'm trying to do in the book and hopefully i've achieved this is actually give the full context, talk about the part from, with serena's face. things like, not getting inducements because she's not a plant, had blue eyed russian who was nowhere near was going to tennis player was. hi, i'm going to get in the middle like i don't the light, mikey, or he did it. and she as well. she and i want to talking to you because it means that you can tell stories about 4 that were not meant to be getting from office. for general. i going to show an image and the image is of the most often in the mail from a p full so many little go in the wow. can you tell us know, well, story. it is a 5 story and some sense to me that i'm that share it with a white and thank you, family for that. and this is the part of joy that i'm happy that i get to. i get
10:52 pm
inspired by my co host, bring it all down. dr. miro davis and dr. brenda l. c. n. a. picked up a bit of a historian bug. no. well, look, how will was the 1st woman from north africa arab muslim women who want to golden, the 1984 olympics and los angeles. and the hurdles and you know, i think that when i study and when i write, i want to research, my master's degree is on most of them in sports specifically, but and self representation. but when i was doing my research and also when i report on the some women in sports for which i'm a global expert, people would say, oh must, some women are oppressed. there's things need to be submissive. you know, i remind them of this history and the story of noel on the to coal is so special because not only was the king of morocco, so excited by her gold medal, when there was a phone brought to the side. and remember, this is 984, there's no cordless phone, so it was like sometimes won't be. yeah, those phones were my 7. it was stretched out to the track. she got on the phone and she had the,
10:53 pm
the flag around her. and the king of morocco was so overjoyed that he declared that every baby born on that day would to be named. now while so if you meet someone who's close to 40 around that, you might, you and their name is no, all maybe perhaps, or born on that day during this during the summer games. and, you know, this isn't to gloss over the fact that there are contradictions and struggles and muslim majority countries. and you know, i don't shy away from any of those criticisms in my work, but it also is important not to paint all groups. monolithically muslims are not a monolith, neither a muslims in the sports space. and this is the problem with not having enough people that look like myself to be able to report is that you get one lens. you get one perspective and that's what i'm arguing for here is that there needs to be more there. and then my job, not only is a journalist, is to create those space. it's not just for myself. what was the point of me being at a tail? if i can't invite others to join,
10:54 pm
so i've decided to create my own dining room. i'm sick of the old table. i don't want to see that that table. i'm creating my own and i think whoever wants to come in the margins, whoever wants to be mentor to what wants to be myspace. i reside in canada, but i have global contacts. and this is i want to see sh, a shifting globally of this. when i, he is an activist campaign at an api. could the school in all of it? i this is alicia one image teaching just very briefly tell us why it give you joy before i leave on to any horrible stories in the city. but this was this team, this is beautiful men. i learn joy and providence. this is the canadian men's national people. this is me, canadian men. what to bother me. who wonderful? absolutely. you know, bring passion and bring purpose and bring happiness to the pitch. now the reason this is a compelling team, like, unlike the canadian womens football team which won gold at the olympics and tokyo,
10:55 pm
this particular team had not qualified for the men's world cup. and i please recall that and know that i'm using meds because it's important to say men's and women's to distinguish not choose the men's as the standard. so this particular team has qualified for the men's world cup and cuppa in 2022 for the 1st time since 1986. so this is the, you know, the country is excited about that. we know that are women's players, our heroes, their top of the podium. and we're hoping that the attention to the men and hopefully will bring money stream and revenue stream to the women who are not yet paid equally. so i'm hopeful for many reasons. all right, hope. joy. oh my goodness celebration. i am going to end on a celebration. i'm going to take you back to may 2066 years ago almost to the day. this was li reporting at how does it. oh fun.
10:56 pm
