Today on The Lead, @MikeDugar on the sports world rallying around George Floyd's killing, and why this time feels different

Jackie Robinson triumphed despite systemic racism – which flourishes to this day partly because of an unease about calling it out by name. So why has MLB, which recognizes Jackie Robinson Day every year, gone silent?
