ESPN’s College GameDay returned on Saturday and the crew was forced to address several serious issues that are affecting the world around them in the past few months.
One of the uncomfortable conversations the GameDay crew discussed on Saturday were regarding the racial and social injustice movements that have been going on throughout the country and sports in 2020.
During the discussion, College football analyst Kirk Herbstreit got extremely emotional and delivered a passionate speech while fighting back tears when talking about wanting to help fight for change in the country when it comes to racial discrimination. ………
"You can't relate to that if you're white, but you can listen and you can try to help. Because this is not okay."
