ESPN's Auction Puts The Racial Dynamics Of Fantasy Sports On Full Display

ESPN launched a 28-hour fantasy football marathon Monday night, and it didn’t take long for some viewers to notice a particularly offensive segment that looked a lot like a modern-day slave auction. ESPN also “auctioned” New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who is white ? but the segment featuring Beckham has drawn criticism for obvious reasons. Meanwhile, NFL players continue to protest the national anthem to draw attention to racism in America.
