Sports and politics cannot be separated. Sports expresses, iterates, and interacts with politics at basically every point of their intersection, and even apart from the myriad ways sports, specifically, contain and are shaped by politics, just as parts of what were still obliged to call a society even as it unravels around our heads sports cannot be apolitical, because nothing can be.
