Roundtable: Nationals at the White House, Lamar Jackson’s success, unpacking Willie Taggart and Beyonce’s normalcy
Also, has the culture been robbed of the Swag Surf?
The Undefeated’s Roundtable takes on the hottest trending topics in sports, race and culture.
The 2019 World Series champs, the Washington Nationals, accepted President Donald Trump’s invitation to celebrate at the White House and the team’s catcher Kurt Suzuki appeared pretty enthused. The roundtable discusses the city’s reaction to the visit. Meanwhile, quarterback Lamar Jackson has more respect on his name after he led the Baltimore Ravens past the New England Patriots. The panel discusses his ceiling. Willie Taggart is out at Florida State and the roundtable unpacks the scenario. And while the Swag Surf just might be the latest example of cultural appropriation, the roundtable agrees that a culture committee should be formed to approve or deny the use of black likenesses.
Also up for discussion this week: Host Domonique Foxworth, sneaker reporter Aaron Dodson, features writer Lonnae O’Neal and sports and culture writer Justin Tinsley evaluate normalcy in Beyoncé’s world.
