Jim Kelly was one of the most decorated world karate champions in the early 70s. He was cast at the last minute for Enter the Dragon which launched his career as the first black martial arts film star.
His character is introduced as a luminary of an all black dojo and a Vietnam vet. Unfortunately the police discrimination he encounters hasn’t changed in 50 years. Fortunately, he’s a fictional martial arts expert and gets away in the movie. #georgefloyd was not so lucky.
@ericlee1219 and I discuss #enterthedragon and our initial thoughts on George Floyd’s murder and how we and our listeners can educate ourselves on anti-racism.

Super stoked for this Sunday’s #30for30 always been a huge Bruce Lee fan! Ashley and I went to Bruce and Brandon Lee’s grave site a few years back when we were in Seattle for Supercross. Pretty freaking neat to see for sure. Always been curious about the whole curse thing. Should be an interesting watch! #espn#bruceLee#BeWater#OG#seattle#MMAgodfather
