ESPN launches show tackling ‘how pervasive racism is in sports’ as Disney boss tries to tone down culture wars

Ibram X. Kendi, an anti-racist activist who founded the Boston University’s Center for Antiracist Research, debuted a new ESPN series, “Skin in the Game,” to dissect racism in sports as Disney boss Bob Iger vowed to “quiet the noise” in the culture wars.

The show, which premiered on ESPN+ late last month, “delves into and challenges racism in the sports world, and will reveal how pervasive racism is in sports, while challenging the thoughts and systems of various governing bodies.”

“BU student fellows will be paired up with, mentored by and provide research assistance to leading antiracist intellectuals and creators in their fields.”

Ryan Gaydos is a senior editor for Fox News Digital.
