In recent days, athletes have shown that they are willing to sacrifice their livelihoods to bring about social change. However, public change is rarely cheap. But I have found the money we need to finance the social change America desperately needs.
It is as rare in Europe to have a publicly funded stadium as it is to have a privately financed stadium here. We should follow that lead. It is time for cities in the United States to immediately and permanently end stadium subsidies. Put that money toward funding the social changes that athletes are now demanding and working so hard to bring about. If every city in the United States agrees to this, franchise owners will not be able to threaten to move their teams to another town.
