Episode Details

Former NBA player Royce White is running for US Senate in Minnesota. Despite a long history of mental health activism and protests against police brutality, media like The Washington Post are trying to brand him as “a far-right populist.”

The late Dr. Vladimir Zelenko endorsed White, saying “Royce has sacrificed his NBA career in order to live according to his values and serve others… Royce is a force of bright White light fighting for our constitution and its Divinely inspired moral values.”

After being selected 16th overall by The Houston Rockets in the NBA draft, Royce White began to voice concerns about the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement, specifically regarding mental health policy, which at the time did not exist. His activism continued to make national headlines by bringing attention to topics like Gain of Function Research, The Federal Reserve, Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, and The Great Reset – even when it put him at odds with the media and sports community. White made his professional MMA debut in 2021 and is currently the only active professional athlete in both MMA and Basketball.
