The CrossFit community has always been bigger than one person. Without it you wouldn’t be here reading, and I wouldn’t be here writing.
Whatever the intentions, Glassman’s statements were abhorrent, tone deaf, and unacceptable.

Cash-out: today let’s learn about the Northwest Community Bail Fund
(via Scott) The prison/jailing system is one of the most harmful ways that oppresses minorities, who often come from lower income areas and are unable to legally fight for themselves in court. There is a disproportionate number of minorities who are both arrested and in jail because they are targeted through the racially biased justice system. When they are wrongfully targeted or arrested, they often have no means of speaking out or getting help and wind up “in the system” which just furthers the problem. Specifically, our bail process is one of the first layers we can address to help those who have been racially targeted. If we can reduce the number of minorities wrongfully convicted, then we can hope to give them a better chance at life by allowing them to stay “out of the system,” getting and holding better jobs, and leading a better quality life.
