Jocks for Justice

Should athletes, or any celebrity, speak out about politics or social issues?

I know the artists will say they speak out in their art but what about athletes. Remember Muhammad Ali? What about Tommie Smith & John Carlos at the 68 Olympics? I'm sure there are others who have done it but who does it now? What about the leagues in general... FIFA and UEFA have launched huge anti-racism campaigns, why doesn't the NBA or NFL?
