11:34 am
while hm, yeah. okay, and you are watching the stream coming to you today for my child who adrian in south number of stories. beans was cute. today's episode is all of our stories as we focus in on the lesson, but we can learn who sports women, and sports men around the world. inspiration is a new book called d. don't back a wake up. who for school, by you? well, in it's easy sport as an allegory. why we're going to taste, want that families got bringing together to sports janice, we, we admire and respect to talk about ethics and sports in weddings, of course. and she, ahmed, welcome to the stream. by the way that you on board are firing. thank you. i just wanted to tap into what was thinking about white. well, when was the last time mention? you saw that's full story. so like, instant watching,
11:35 am
instant or neither fast. probably every day, every time we see a story coming in the news that leading the news. you think here it is a good here it goes again. and these stories are around since i finished writing the book. i think, or if i don't have time to put that story in as well, but that constant, i'm up constantly sort of evolving my view on for and stories in the lose. just keep on inspiring and also making you want. so i have other people discussed them and actually come to some conclusions about sports. well in society, shame, likings for general to gamble. so each one was the muslim, using, ah, yes, as in life. i mean, it depends what aspect of life really. i mean there's challenges or struggles, there is joy, but i mean, i work
11:36 am
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 the abuse, whether it's an issue of inequality, 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 manet. and we were speaking about senegalese football in the pre show. but just having that to talk about joy, now i tried very hard to incorporate joy into some of my practice as a journalist. otherwise it would be very, very depressing. the world of sports feminine can be very depressing. so i have tried to insert that intentionally. hey paul walker, listen, she to go. i'm going to say to all of our is watching you either the person fulfill thomasville, georgia, pass for whatever you want to share with the lesson. she had one if you need you
11:37 am
jumping to the comment section. part of today's show, wow, that was c j was accented. oh t v. awesome. and because she feel house overseas went to the base issue in my spot, i believe we're currently facing. and i believe this is in all i was a football from the cross ruse all the way through am to the top lives in a world. and from being ex player a to work in sports media. now i percy feel this one and i think the biggest issue for me is racism, annapolis, alec, a broken record, but you were to fall off the euros for england and the free blood plasma, snip noise and abuse. they got off the back of the campaigns and that went in off that things like kick our races and so racing the red card, the players taken a me off before every much 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 change that she happened. i think more needs to be done.
11:38 am
and it's a big, big issue in the game. the hope is stamped out and taken seriously. morsey going forward in football. so i'm thinking or evil is still spoiled what, what most of, what was that? anything during globally or into what made ons or on this is an ins old seat over is not impressed me. well, actually school made an impact back on society after that because it was through things we saw in sports from taking a ne, a huge scores events, and from discussions around whether the me should be taken through to say actions which were commendable life i felt of the players and the officials throughout the n b 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
11:39 am
a reporter or correspondence and say, well, faith for you a for has had did out of fine over to spencer in was stadium closure. so what kick a club out of a competition, kickin nation out not broke 1st minor offense may be a, you know, you'd be div of legal difficulties dead, but then needs 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 i tried to have 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 found upon they were shut down because hang on, we are 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 footballs. crikey, at the end of the eighty's round, 1990 morrila,
11:40 am
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 confronting issues of racism or massage any of those intersections than i, i mean, i mean, 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, n b a and black women in that being that have set the blueprint for how and t black races and can be eradicated and sport. and let's not forget that because that's one
11:41 am
of the problems that happens. black women are often excluded from these. and the 1st ally, the white ally to neil with calling copper nick was in fact, megan robina was a white gay woman. and she was an on the cover of sports illustrated. so let's be careful how we chronicled us 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 realized that they were badly equipped to handle discussions of racism. and like, let's not, as you know, how i realized sharing, sorry to jump in a lot that you want to bring to this. i tell you, help, i realized i know for a fact tell i realize because people were, were phoned by bosses that lead organizations and said we need to have a more diverse workforce off of 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
11:42 am
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 stole . absolutely. you know, writing terrible things and british sport media in particular. you know, like i think fits particular players. got 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 be. so literally very honest about that. when we absolutely butchery who's making the decisions, this is the thing, don't you form we all fall into the truck side. oh, well that looks like a diverse on the screen team that looks like a diverse workforce on a minute. who's making that decision? some of the people making the decisions will have terrible trunk records of diversity. i'm just not making the right decisions anyway over many, you know,
11:43 am
they're winning awards for their coverage of such things as blank laws, motrin sport, whether the sleeves all the were implies the least funny. if i may, some of what we're talking about isn't just the got me body is not just the sports authority. it's also how we asked janice on a sports correspondence handle stories. so soon i haven't to, haven't you ever her ever is a free lance? once she spoke just a few hours ago, was, is what she shared with us, and luigi off, erica, finish. his test results of the problems that i see in sports is truly the coverage . generally speaking, sports journalists are either not encouraged to or not equipped to have conversations. we're a sports intersects other entangled parts of our life relationships, where politics or education, or advocacy and social justice. so my solution would be at 1st we hire more diverse
11:44 am
journalists to 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 has 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 a, you know, a different identity to a newsroom or 2 coverage. and i think that's imperative in someone that covers, 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 trav, 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
11:45 am
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. point i was like, i mean that literally the exact point i was making. so, you know, i mean, you know, you're agreeing with me please. he has, you know that you've agreed with him 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 and final pop hobby. anyone into sports industry sometimes seems to be one thing to do. there seems to be wanting to go think you can look at little examples like if only getting some breaks out in a football stadium. i wanted to report on the much know the story. now you're going
11:46 am
to have to deal with it. i want you to really start to see about you, is that you're talking about. so to paraphrase you, but you know, creating spices and anew signing your mining. brilliant head. totally talking about you have to call violent 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. love them despite it only i have a thought. yeah. and this came from these raining and he said, yes, i totally agree with you to help the story matter. and as opposed to the education that you discovered, ally as he was talking about and thinking about. so even on the instant what happened is 18 briefly left. that story and one or more.
11:47 am
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'd be bold and i've tried blaze to during my career, which it up doesn't really tell us the story because we know you're just reno william now, but it's important the context for me because it's the one time this is why i'm giving the context is the one time a bottle. i've bottled there. i was going to tweet to say that serena williams, behavior was disgraceful. the reason i was going to do that was i simple because it was, it was a township, pure and simple. no difference really, from a john mack about attention. you know what tennis players are proud that just as tennis umpires,
11:48 am
a pride to being pompous but i bottled it. the reason is it would have been, i promise you misconstrued because the amount of vile vices and that's directed at my favorite tennis player, serena who i've covered our entire career and had so much admiration and know her background in our back story. we had virtue signaling, patronizing, condescending journalists loaded journalists who were telling us, wow, look, there's the backstory. look, what happened that night? i felt sorry for now me a soccer. and in the book, i talk about how i'm it was how night it was ruined, and what was happening here was the right subject that needs to be in the public all the time. but the wrong case, i have gone to friends, black friends, people in the media, people outside of the media and said, do i have the right to say this, do i have the right to write about it? and the answer i've got to have listened is that late when you've experienced enough of base, you quickly come in for serena cuz you know what's coming towards her
11:49 am
home home. 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 in war against her. in the, 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 her family was treated and i would still look at that. but then more importantly, i think i would have defer to other black sports journalists, and i would empathize their work for one set of headphones almost like you know, the moment you read this. ok, so i understood, 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,
11:50 am
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, 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 read 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
11:51 am
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 margins have a right to share their own experiences and do the same work. and white men with power in that case with virtue signaling to within an inch of their lives, it was really ghastly to say because actually it meant there was no new once there was no really proper research into what was going on. it was just telling the bike story and actually i think, but that night deserve more than that because what i've tried to do in the book and hopefully i've achieved this is actually give the full context. talk about the background with serena's face, things like not getting endorsements because she's not a blond haired, blue eyed russian who was nowhere near was good. a tennis player was her. i'm looking in the middle. got it. i already like on the light. i hated ivy and
11:52 am
she as well. she and i am talking to you lived experience because it was it, you can tell stories about school, they were not leslie going from office for jen. this had been a show an image and this image is often moroccan. heard, you know, who made from eighty's when so many little girls in iraq overcoat in the wow. can you tell us noel's story? it is a fabulous story. a woman, thanks to me. then i will share it won't of wifi and thank you. come in for that, and this is the part of joy that i'm happy that i got to i get inspired by my co host bernard all down. dr. morose davis and dr. brenda elsie and picked up a bit of a historian bug noel electric. how old was the 1st woman from north africa, arab muslim women who won a gold and the 1984 olympics and most angeles them hurdles. and you know, i think that when i study and when i write, when i research, my master's degree is on most of the women in sports specifically, but and self representation. but when i was doing my research and also when i
11:53 am
report on muslim women and sports for which i'm a global expert, people would say, oh must, some women are oppressed, they're saying they 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 1984, there's no cordless phone, so it was like, sunshine won't be. yeah, those phones were my sub and it was stretched out to the track. she got on the phone and she had the, 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 noel. 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 you did during the summer games. and, you know, this is that to gloss over the fact that there are all, are contradictions and struggles and muslim majority countries. and that, you know, i don't shy away from any of those criticisms in my work. but it also is important
11:54 am
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 spaces, not just for myself. what was the point of me being at a table? if i can't invite others to join, so i've decided to create my own dining room. i'm sick of the old table. i don't want to seat at 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 ish, a shifting globally of this. what he is an active is a campaigner, an up the could the school in all of it's either city alicia,
11:55 am
one imitation, just very briefly. tell us why it gives you joy before i leave all to ali conical storage semester city. but this was, this teams is beautiful men. i learned a joy and, and providence, this is the canadian mans national football. this is me, canadian man. what to me who wonderful. absolutely. you know, bring passion and bring purpose and bring happiness to the perch. now the reason this is a compelling to me, like, unlike the canadian womens football team, which one gold at the olympics and tokyo, this particular team had not qualified for the men's world cup. and i please recall that, and note that i'm using meds cause 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 copper in 2022. for the 1st time since 1986. so this is the, you know, the country is excited about that. we know that our women's players are heroes,
11:56 am
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. i'm a normal guineas. celebration. i am going to handle a celebration. i'm gonna take you back to may 2066 years ago almost to the day. this was li reporting. and i'll just, oh fun a you
11:57 am

11:58 am
a beautiful thing for a city there was magic could be ever, i've never seen the biggest folks miracle. when i get children's career speeches, i press play on by and by love and i get it and that's what i should not have done . i will leave for wow, this is also a tough call for sports team or make i can is she that she just? she's a sports jenny. she's an inspiration to check out her column and cps. who are jo john as well? i'm fun to watch houston. thank ah frank assessments, what are the political risks of panic? russian oil, a gas for western leaders, pull sanctions on russian energy exports. policy was informed opinions,
