Governor Gretchen Whitmer has approved the start of high school football in the state of Michigan in the latest executive order. Will the Greater Lansing area school districts approve play? How comfortable are parents with allowing their sons to lace up the cleats?

Some have called the Nash hire an example of 'white privilege.' Al disagrees. Listen to why.
