Description

American sports have changed from a unifying bond to a platform for division. Is there any going back?

Sports columnist Jerry Brewer has been thinking about the state of sports for decades. In the past few years, it has soured in his mind. In his new series of essays titled “Grievance Games,” Brewer set out to explore why he believes the unifying power of sports has been ruptured through grievance politics. And how many of those grievances are racially charged. 

Today on Post Reports, Brewer narrates the first piece in the series, which serves as an introduction to his thinking.

You can find this column, and the next three in the series, here.

This story was written and narrated by Jerry Brewer. It was produced and mixed with original music by Bishop Sand.
