NBA response to Sarver investigation avoids broader culture of racism and misogyny https://seattlewto.org/nba-response-to-sarver-investigation-avoids-broader-culture-of-racism-and-misogyny/ Mon, 26 Sep 2022 12:00:00 +0000 https://seattlewto.org/nba-response-to-sarver-investigation-avoids-broader-culture-of-racism-and-misogyny/ By Marc H.

By Marc H. Morial

(Trice Edney Wire) – “Sarver did not have his moment of coming to Jesus voluntarily. He was dragged there kicking and screaming. And he expected to find clemency there, where he traded his elite position for a dose of humility. But in pleading for a second chance, he was really fighting to keep his position of power. Sarver might very well mean it when he says he’s sorry, and he can deliver on his promise to emerge as a better man. Yet the forgiveness he believes is his right does not come with the privilege of owning an NBA team. –Candace Buckner

This week’s announcement that Robert Sarver has put the Phoenix Suns and Mercury up for sale is good news. The NBA and WNBA are well rid of his racism, misogyny, harassment and abuse.

But as the third NBA owner in eight years to sell a team after racist comments came to light – Donald Sterling of the LA Clippers in 2014 and Bruce Levenson of the Atlanta Hawks in 2015 – the Sarver case signals a systemic problem.

Only a lifetime ban, like the one imposed on Sterling, will demonstrate that the NBA is truly striving to represent the values ​​of equality, respect and inclusion, as NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement.

Although investigators reported that efforts to investigate allegations of institutional racial and gender discrimination and harassment at the Suns were hampered by poor human resources record keeping, they made it clear that they “did not undertake to review individual job applications or conduct an investigation”. full review of race or gender equality at the Suns. Such a review should be done – not just at the Suns but at every team.

Additionally, Sarver’s decision to sell the teams presents an opportunity for the league to diversify team ownership. While nearly three-quarters of NBA players are black, Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan is the only black primary owner in 30.

Sarver’s voluntary decision to sell the teams spares other league owners from exercising their option to force a sale, just as they were spared having to vote on Sterling and Levinson. But they will have to vote to approve the sale, and they can demonstrate their commitment to diversity by insisting on minority representation among the new owners.

It’s been more than 10 months since ESPN published its scathing expose of the “toxic and sometimes hostile” workplace that Sarver created during his 17 years as a landlord. As one former Suns executive said, “There’s literally nothing you can tell me about him from a misogynistic or racial perspective that would surprise me.”

The NBA investigation into Sarver’s conduct, which concluded earlier this month, found that Sarver:

  • repeatedly used the N-word, even after black and white employees told him he shouldn’t.
  • used degrading language and behavior towards employees.
  • makes rude jokes and inappropriate comments about sex and anatomy.
  • exhibited inappropriate physical behavior in the workplace towards male employees.
  • intimidated employees with degrading and harsh treatment, including shouting and swearing at them.

Absurdly, the investigation found that Sarver – who is quoted in the report saying “I hate diversity” and “Why are all the women here crying so much?” – was not motivated in this behavior by racial or gender animosity.

This discovery reveals a disturbing lack of understanding of the very nature of racial and sexual animosity and the pervasive influence of implicit and explicit prejudice at all levels of society. To use an imperfect analogy, the absence of a “Keep out!” sign is not the same as a welcome mat. And that’s a bigger problem than Robert Sarver.

Bar stool debates over music often go nowhere, but they can sometimes help make sense of things. I remembered such a frequent debate when I heard a recent episode of Sonoro sofa, the fantastic streaming program directed by Alfonso Cardenal for the Cadena Ser radio network in Spain. This particular episode was about 1970s rock music, and it reminded me of something I’ve been thinking about for a long time: that the 1970s were the best decade for popular music. But before attacking, allow me to defend this statement.

Music historians often hail the 1960s as the best decade for popular music, as it was when rock became a countercultural movement led by giants like Bob Dylan, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. It was also the decade of soul music, with the emergence of prominent Stax and Motown record labels. And it is also the genesis of great music festivals like the mythical Woodstock. Many other political ingredients and social struggles also fueled the 1960s, but it was not the only transcendental decade in music: the 1950s saw Elvis Presley ignite the fuse for the rock & roll explosion. Purists love the 1950s because it was the start of so many things and it was steeped in captivating innocence. Still others plead for the 1980s, with its post-punk and the birth of indie, so decisive for many and which created its own musical myths. The generation that came of age in the 1990s defends this decade for emotional reasons: they lived through the moodiness laden with grunge, British pop and the brightest indie music.

These days, the news constantly reminds us that the 20th century is slipping away as its cultural luminaries disappear. Looking back is one way to bring order to the past. The 1970s hold many keys to understanding the value of popular music, but it’s also wonderful emotional territory to explore. My statement that this was the best decade for popular music is more personal introspection than demonstrable judgment. However, I will offer some arguments in support of this thesis.

I have always considered the 70s as the time when rock, as an artistic and cultural movement, realized its own virtues and defects. The counterculture seemed to run out of steam after the Beatles split and the “Summer of Love.” The turn of the decade showed that 1960s history had become a commodity, something else to be consumed by a commercial culture. On the other hand, the 1970s was a period that allowed the passionate Seattle sound of the Stooges, MC5 and punk rock to spread across the US and UK. For that reason alone—the rage and nihilism that shook the hearts of the music industry and popular culture—this decade would rise above any other. At the very least, there was a lot more awareness of failure and a much greater need to break everything. The 1970s were the years of the Clash, the Sex Pistols and the Ramones who, along with the Stooges and MC5, embodied a whole philosophical treatise on rock.

Alongside the punk fury, a new wave of pop rock swelled and gave us street beats from the iconic CBGB nightclub by artists like Patti Smith, Blondie, Television, Talking Heads, Johnny Thunders, The Dictators and Mink Deville. Britain’s incredible new wave was no slouch and produced a long list of stars like Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, The Police, Echo and the Bunnymen and Joy Division. At the same time pub rock was born in the UK with Dr Feelgood at the fore, alongside Brinsley Schwarz, Ian Dury and Graham Parker.

Black music moved from soul to funk with the raw sound of James Brown and vibrant new names like Funkadelic and Parliament. Soul music also evolved in the 1970s. For all its success in the 1960s, Motown was never as transcendent as it was in the 70s with the incomparable Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye’s What’s going on, and many more that followed. The 1970s saw the birth of hip hop in the Bronx, New York, an African-American countercultural earthquake that flourished in the 1980s, and the New York salsa boom that marked a before and after for Latin music around the world.

The same decade will bring progressive rock and hard rock, two new musical genres from the great trunk of rock. That is to say, it’s the decade of Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath or AC/DC. And, if we have to mention gigantic stadium bands, we have to add Queen or The Eagles. It is also the decade of disco music, so important for the development of discotheques which still persist today. But, without a doubt, just as the 70s were the decade of punk and hip hop, it was the decade of electronic music. This musical movement with great social roots will change the whole sound scene from the birth of popular electronic music, illustrated by Kraftwerk, another essential group in the history of music and emerging from this decade. And, just across that shore, in the ever-conservative country, there’s another little earthquake with the consolidation of the outlaw: Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings… and over there! they were also to their own beat but glorified country-folk Gram Parsons, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris and Townes Van Zandt!

If all that isn’t enough to convince you of the 1970s, consider two giants of the decade: David Bowie and Lou Reed. And there are more, many more, like Bob Marley who introduced reggae to the world. I will now give you some of my personal favorites from this decade: Neil Young, Tom Waits, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Patti Smith and Jackson Browne. And maybe the brilliant Van Morrison too. And how about great musical playwrights like Elton John and Billy Joel?

While some music legends clearly broke out in the 1960s, many of their best albums were made in the 1970s. The Rolling Stones produced sticky fingers and Exile on Main St. Similarly, Bob Dylan produced Basement strips (released in 1975), Rolling Thunder Reviewand his more intimate albums like Blood on the tracks, Desire and street legal. Oh, and don’t forget the quasi-religious slow train coming. Yes, I buy it. Just when I’m buying this (hold on to your hats), the 1970s was the decade of a huge, unique Elvis Presley. I will defend to the death the Elvis of the 70s, rising in his great suffering and self-destructing in a perfect rock & roll metaphor. And it’s the decade in which he died that makes him unique.

3 NFL head coaches changing the culture in 2022 https://seattlewto.org/3-nfl-head-coaches-changing-the-culture-in-2022/ Thu, 22 Sep 2022 00:59:55 +0000 https://seattlewto.org/3-nfl-head-coaches-changing-the-culture-in-2022/ (Photo by Tim Bradbury/Getty Images) The 2022 NFL season has already shockingly kicked off.

The 2022 NFL season has already shockingly kicked off.

From a monsoon game in Chicago to a Monday night thriller in Seattle, this season is off to a flying start.

However, there are some standout moments proven by culture-changing head coaches in 2022.

Of the NFL’s 32 head coaches, which ones are making the biggest changes?

3. Brian Daboll

The New York Giants are back to winning games in 2022.

Head Coach Brian Daboll changed the losing culture with the Giants into a winning team.

His leadership took the team to 2-0 to open the season.

However, his latest request from Giants season ticket holders is something unheard of in the NFL.

Daboll has emailed these season ticket holders and wants them to create a blank in their home game against rival NFC East.

The move is something new in NFL culture, as it’s unheard of for NFL head coaches to email season ticket holders.

However, it’s an energy like his that brings the Giants to life in 2022.

They are no longer a bottom team, as they are now at the top of the NFC East with the Philadelphia Eagles.

2. Robert Saleh

Robert Saleh takes his detractors seriously.

He stores all negative comments, ready to use them against his detractors when he proves them wrong.

While some think the Jets can’t do much, the players are showing they’re motivated by it.

That motivation is something that earned them a victory in Cleveland against the Browns on Sunday.

However, the jury is still out on how long that motivation will last in 2022.

But it’s a clear shift in NFL culture with the way head coaches approach criticism.

No other coach is doing what Saleh is doing right now.

He’s all about his team and ready to tell the critics they’re wrong when the day comes.

1.Mike McDaniel

While the Miami Dolphins have a wide receiver who beats his QB, his head coach Mike McDaniel puts everything in place.

With some in Miami wanting a different QB, it’s McDaniel who trusts Tua Tagovailoa

The young QB was thought to be on his way out this season, after trade rumors and a story about Tom Brady coming to Miami surfaced.

However, Tua is posting the best numbers of his young career.

He currently leads the league in passing yards while helping his top two receivers lead in receiving yards.

While many doubted the young QB and Tyreek Hill’s chances of success with him, McDaniel’s and the Dolphins prove otherwise.

His faith in Tua is rewarded with a 2-0 start.

But it will be a Sunday game against the Buffalo Bills that will test the culture in Miami.

However, McDaniel is up for the challenge as he knows Miami needs a win against their AFC East rivals.

He brings a winning culture to Miami that he wants to continue this season.

So, with his biggest test ahead of him, he and his team are set for a colossal game with potential playoff implications early in the NFL season.

Heading into week three of the 2022 college football season, several Big Ten teams are off to a strong start, including two top-four teams (No. 3 Ohio State and No. 4 Michigan) and two more in the top 25 (No. 11 Michigan State and 22 Penn State). Meanwhile, other conference teams aren’t starting 2022 the way they’d hoped, with Wisconsin coming off a surprising loss to unranked Washington State and Iowa losing to then-rival Iowa State. that the Hawkeyes are struggling to make something happen offensively.

However, no program has been as deeply disappointed as Nebraska, whose head coach Scott Frost was fired on Sunday. Among the storylines to watch in this week’s conference is Nebraska’s reaction, along with the intriguing off-conference road games at Michigan State and Penn State.

How will Nebraska react under the new head coach?

Huskers enter rivalry contest against No. 6 Oklahoma (2-0) under interim head coach Mickey-Joseph after Scott Frost ousting, which came after two early season losses to Northwestern and Georgia Southern of the Sun Belt. After paying Southern nearly $1.5 million for the loss, Nebraska (1-2) decided to pay an additional $15 million to buy out Frost, which the school deemed urgent enough not to. wait until October 1.st, while the buyout would have been reduced by $7.5 million. Frost had coached the Huskers to four losing seasons before this one, the worst of which came last year with a 3-9 record.

Joseph says he not only hopes to be a stopgap solution for Nebraska, where he played quarterback from 1988 to 1991 and joined the coaching staff this season after several seasons at LSU. He is Nebraska’s first black head coach, interim or permanent, in any sport. Joseph, 54, will coach the team for the rest of the season.

At 1-2, the Huskers are likely already out of the conversation to compete for a Big Ten division or conference title, but there are certainly points of reputation and pride at stake in the rivalry game this week. Oklahoma is a road favorite by more than a touchdown, but the Sooners are relatively untested this season with victories over UTEP and Kent State, and despite the endgame results, Nebraska stood proven capable of moving the ball in every competition this season. The Huskers have 866 yards through the air and 611 yards rushing in three games this season, scoring at least 28 points in each.

Penn State’s No. 22 goes to Auburn in great test for both programs

One of the most exciting matchups on the Week 3 college football slate on Saturday will see the Nittany Lions travel to Auburn’s Jordan-Hare Stadium in a first litmus test for the two teams, who each sit a 2-0 somewhat untested, only having to face unranked teams.

Auburn head coach Bryan Harsin said turnovers and discipline are concerns for the Tigers ahead of this game after the team turned the ball over twice and gave up 85 yards on 9 penalties against San Jose State in the week 2. He called Penn State “much better” than the teams they’ve faced so far, noting the Nittany Lions’ quick and physical style.

The Tigers have an offensive star at junior running back Bigsby Reservoirbut with just one passing touchdown so far this season, they’ve shown little ability to mix up their offensive approach, which can haunt them against a stronger defense like Penn State.

The game could prove pivotal for Harsin, who many believed would not be around for a second season at Auburn after the Tigers went 6-7 in 2021.

Likewise, victory could bolster the legitimacy of Penn State and the head coach. james franklinwho just completed a 7-6 year.

First-year student Nick Singleton had a breakout week for Penn State last week, throwing for 179 yards and two touchdowns against Ohio and adding dimension to an offense that has been defined by by Sean Clifford passing performance in recent seasons.

Despite the big numbers both teams had in their early-season wins, this showdown between the Spartans and Huskies in Seattle risks turning more into a defensive contest, as Michigan State (2-0) has an average 6.5 points allowed (sevene in FBS) and the Huskies (2-0) are averaging 13. Likewise, both teams are averaging under 300 yards allowed per game across two contests.

Michigan State has a standout defenseman at linebacker Jacoby Windmon, who leads all FBS players with 5.5 individual sacks and 4 forced fumbles this season. Windmon has played just two games as a Spartan since transferring from UNLV ahead of the 2022 season. His efforts helped Michigan State average just 81.5 rushing yards allowed over the two first games of the season.

As a result, Washington will likely rely on the junior quarterback’s continued success Michael Penix Jr.., who is averaging more than 330 yards per game with 6 touchdowns and 1 interception in the Huskies’ two wins this season.

Michigan State QB Payton Thorne is still looking for a rhythm, having thrown for 4 touchdowns but 3 interceptions so far. The Spartans running core led the way on offense, highlighted by the sophomore running back by Jalen Berger 4 touchdowns, including three last week against Akron.

The Huskies are the slight favorite heading into the weekend, but Michigan State’s defense is likely to keep the Spartans in contention throughout the night, and the head coach by Mel Tucker practice experience can give them even more advantage against Washington Kalen DeBoerwho is only in his third season in the NCAA and his first with the Huskies.

Equal Vision Records and New York pop-punk trio Young Culture are delighted to announce the Friday, November 11 release of You Had To Be There, the band’s next album.

Recorded with Anton DeLost (State Champs, Silverstein, Mayday Parade) in Toronto, Ontario, it feels like the trio – vocalist Alex Magnan and guitarists Gabe Pietrafesa and Troy Burchett – are coming down from love a year ago marked by the Godspeed EP.

While equally dramatic with catchy surges of unapologetic emotion, You Had To Be There presents a melancholy surge of high-octane energy with shadows lurking in the foundations of these 10 songs.

Stream the album’s new single, “Kinda Over It,” a song about the shadows, back and forths, and unnecessary headaches of a relationship that isn’t really a relationship. The trio had the following to share about the band themselves and their upcoming album:

“Young Culture has always been about making the most of your life, enjoying those good times, so come and do it with us. You’ll find us in touch with our pop-punk roots but with a new and refreshing purpose. , sweet and precise as we like to do but filled with memorable moments. If you miss the YC train,
sorry, I can’t explain this one to you, I guess ‘You had to be there’.”

Additionally, Young Culture also announced their co-headline tour with Super American as well as dates supporting State Champs in select North American markets in October and November. Ticket information can be found HERE, and a full list of dates can be found below.

You Had To Be There, the upcoming album from the Young Culture trio of Albany, NY, builds on the foundations the band has established since forming in 2016. It’s an album that challenges the conventional – and often true – notion. – of the difficult second recording. It was anything but. Plus, you can hear how much freedom, joy, exuberance and fun went into the process of putting it all together.

Due to the pandemic, the band didn’t get a chance to release and tour the debut album, but the release of You Had To Be There almost represents another chance to remake the debut album. It feels a lot like a real stamp of young culture, both in terms of where they are now and what they want for the future.

Smooth, polished pop from opener “Not In Love” and hybrid pop-punk from “Kinda Over It” – two songs about finding solace in someone else’s company, if not- what for one night – to the joy, bombast and triumphant strains of ‘We’re On Fire’ and the desperate yet still defiant nature of ‘Know Better’, this is a record about how to make the most of of the present, to live in the present and have as much fun as possible no matter what you or the world is going through.

Musically, it’s also a shameless nod to all the genres and groups that the trio loves. On “Tattoo,” for example, the band refers to listening to the Backstreet Boys the same way they mentioned listening to Britney Spears on “Hum.” There’s no worry that it won’t be cool in the pop-punk scene, and there shouldn’t be. In fact, it’s precisely this unbridled passion and unfiltered enthusiasm that makes You Had To Be There stand out.

However, it’s done in such a way that the band are also looking forward to what’s next – both in the near future and in the grand scheme of things – and doing so with added confidence. It’s something that is wholeheartedly reflected throughout the album, musically and lyrically, from the very first note to the very last.

“I really think it’s something you don’t want to miss,” singer Alex Magnan said. “I feel like it’s the sound of us picking up and making a record that’s the youngest thing ever. We were the most excited we’ve ever been to make the music of this album.”

Young Culture will make the following US appearances in October and November. Dates below.

When I first heard the term “silent quitting,” I assumed it meant people quietly forgetting about their jobs in a tight job market.

Then I learned that meant people did what was expected of them at work, but didn’t work unpaid overtime. This supposedly amounted to giving up. Once I rolled my eyes in my head, I had to laugh.

What a metaphor for our divided times.

Today is Labor Day 2022. We are in our third year of a pandemic that has changed almost every aspect of our lives, especially our professional lives. Blue-collar, service and frontline healthcare workers have persevered, facing uncertainty, illness and even death from an ever-changing virus, even as safety measures to protect them have largely disappeared.

Workers learned that their safety, working hours, wages and employment (and therefore their survival) could not be entrusted solely to the benevolence of their employers. They also learned that when faced with a choice between worker safety and economic gain, worker safety would almost always be sacrificed.

So it’s no big surprise, after decades of decline, that the labor movement is enjoying a resurgence. Today, 71% of people in the United States approve of unions, according to an August Gallup poll, the highest level since 1965.

While only 10% of American workers are unionized today (compared to 20% in 1985), the number of petitions for union representation has increased by 57% in the first half of 2022.

In Washington, organizing efforts are at their highest level in more than 10 yearsthe Starbucks workers in our state and nationally filing the most representation cases with the National Labor Relations Board this year.

Even Amazon workers have been successfully organizing, with the direction of their efforts coming from the workers themselves. Former Amazon warehouse worker Chris Smalls – derisively described by an Amazon lawyer as “neither smart nor articulate” – was fired after leading a strike to protest working conditions before finally win Amazon’s first syndicate this year.

In addition to pandemic-related security concerns, inflation, sluggish wages, and a lack of social safety nets like paid parental leave are hitting American workers at the same time corporate profits “soared,” disproving the myth that we are all in the same boat. As Steven Greenhouse reported in the Washington Post on Friday, since 1973, “post-inflation wages have remained essentially flat for the typical American worker.”

The new pro-worker sentiment was not entirely the result of the pandemic; these changes have been in motion as new generations have arrived. Hand-wringing and clutching the bead on ‘silent resignation’ reflects the disconnect between young workers who are increasingly questioning the natural order of our society’s almost religious belief in the restlessness culture and older generations who lament “people just don’t want to work anymore.”

Like many Gen Xers, I grew up believing that going above and beyond was a virtue that would be rewarded with advancement and greater job security. Burnout and overwork were just collateral damage to what would ultimately be a smart compromise.

But no matter how much or how hard we work, we know there is no perfect meritocracy in a country built on inequality and stolen labour. The playing field has always been far from even. Do women overall do 25% less work and that’s why we get paid 25% less? No. Do black women earn 64 cents for every dollar earned by a white man because they do less? Of course not.

And to be clear, women, for example, not only do more unpaid work at home, but are often asked to do the most invisible work at work and would probably pay the highest price not to do it anymore.

What the younger generations are teaching us and what the “silent shutdown” is trying to convey is that despite the fidgety fingers of Arianna Huffington or Shark Tank’s Kevin O’Leary, work is work and should be remunerated, not just the future possibility of advancement.

Ed Zitron, the head of the public relations agency EZPR, wrote about silent quit talk in a Business Insider article titled, “‘Quiet Shutdown’ Is Nothing But Pro-Boss Propaganda. ”

He wrote: “Work is an exchange of money for work, and if you want more work from your workers, you must be prepared to pay for it instead of inventing meaningless false pathologies to do make hard workers look like lazy people.

Or, as Twitter and TikTok users have called it: “Act your paycheck.”
