Baloncesto y racismo

una historia indisociable

Muñoz Rojo, Pablo

On May 25, 2020, a police officer murdered George Floyd. The harshness of the images, in what many call "a modern lynching in broad daylight", led NBA and WNBA players to make public their positions on what happened and, above all, their experiences. with racism. The door was thus opened for millions of followers of these athletes to hear first-hand testimonies about a reality that the majority of the white population is unaware of or minimizes. Pablo Muñoz Rojo seeks to approach racism through the basketball industry, especially in the United States, but also in Spain. And he does so by taking advantage of an ideal context of political struggle based on the mobilizations that arose in many parts of the world after the murder of Floyd, Black Lives Matter and the elections in the United States. Under this panorama, he analyzes the NBA itself and the experiences of black players in professional leagues, as well as delving into player unionism, the history of voting, protests, white supremacism, the police and many other aspects. that are transversal to racism.
