Super Bowl, NBA, NHL … Is sport still a way to achieve the American dream?


This Sunday, February 7, Americans were able to forget politics for a few moments thanks to the Super Bowl, a huge show during which great artists come to perform – we could thus see The Weeknd. On the scoring side, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9, the seventh coronation for quarterback Tom Brady.

For the occasion, New Deal returns to the place of sport in the lives of Americans. Basketball, football, hockey, soccer are some of the means for some to obtain university scholarships in prestigious institutions, and are producing more and more role models inspiring and engaged. As places of competition, the stadiums have also become places of debate, with strong positions on racism and police violence.

Slate.fr has partnered with la newsletter «Time to Sign Off» (TTSO) and to French Institute of International Relations (IFRI) to follow American political news and offer the podcast every Wednesday New Deal, with Laurence Nardon, head of the North America program at IFRI, and Romain Dessal, founder of TTSO.
