Al talks with former MSU fullback great James Moore about the unrest happening in America due to the killing of George Floyd. 

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin, Al invites James Moore for an hour-long, in-depth video-conference discussion on race in America in light of the George Floyd protests across the nation. Moore shares thoughts on how he believes the message gets clouded if looting and violence takes place, as well as personal struggles as it pertains to being a black man living in America. Moore also touches on the comments of New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who came out against players take a knee during the national anthem, following in the footsteps of former NFL QB Colin Kaepernick who used the moment as a way of silently protesting inequality. That, and more, with James Moore!
