Spurs coach Gregg Popovich: Don’t kid yourself, ‘we live in a racist country’
Market Watch ^ | February 13, 2018 | Shawn Langlois

Posted on 02/13/2018 2:17:46 PM PST by GuavaCheesePuff

A reporter last night asked San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich why it’s important for the NBA to celebrate Black History Month.

Popovich isn’t one to pull any punches:

‘I think it’s pretty obvious. The league is made up of a lot of black guys. To honor that and understand it is pretty simplistic. How would you ignore that? But more importantly, we live in a racist country that hasn’t figured it out yet.’

Haven’t figured out what yet? What the heck is he talking about? WhT are we supposed to figure out? If he’s got it figured out why doesn’t he share with the rest of us?

I used to really like that guy. He’s a great coach. It’s a shame he’s equally good about being a putz.

I agree 100% with him - the liberals, BLM, etc are the biggest and worst racists in the last 100 years.

Of course I only read the first line of the ‘article’ - but I agree with that much of it!

I’m at the point where the word “racist” is a compliment.

Tagline.

Well, it seems to be more racist now than it was 10 years ago.

We live in a country where more than half the population are thoroughly brainwashed. Drones, like Popovich, who repeat cultural marxist talking points without a clue as to why they’re doing so.

Every country has racists.

It doesn't make every country racist.

The US has more tolerance for different people than just about anywhere on earth.

I gave up on the NBA years ago, when Earl ‘The Pearl’ Monroe transformed ‘traveling’ into an art form. At that point, the NBA became no better than ‘professional raslin’’. If you really want to see GOOD basketball, I recommend the nearest college women’s team.

After hearing the BLM oBOM script for several years now, it's clear Only Black Opinions Matter.

If that isn't racist, I don't know what is.

We are told constantly by the progressive/communists how racist we all are.

It gets a little old after a while.

Everything is now political.
