Daily Show Sports Roundup: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39QkEbD0apE
As we come into 2018, I’ve decided to help you understand American culture by explaining the culture you’ll find in media – tv shows, movies, songs, and even Tweets.
In this episode, we cover the Daily Show’s 2017 Sports Roundup.
I decided to do this since the Sports Roundup covered 3 of the things Americans are crazy about – football, the Superbowl, and racism.
NFL – The organization which operates America’s professional football industry
Superbowl 51 – the 51st football yearly National Football League (NFL) championship game
Quarterback – the football player who leads the team’s offensive play.
Atlanta Falcons – NFL team from Atlanta, Georgia
New England Patriots – NFL team based in the Greater Boston Region
Blacksheep – a member of a family or group who is regarded as a disgrace to them.
KKK – the Ku Klux Klan, a pro-white extremist group in the United States
Anti-immigration – the attitude that immigrants shouldn’t be let into the country, or should be given a hard time. In America, this idea mostly means that non-white immigrants shouldn’t be let in the country
Racism – dislike or hatred against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.
White Nationalism – the idea that a country belongs to white people
White Supremacy – the idea that white people are superior to other people from other races and colors
Wokeness – knowing about social and political problems
