A reporter last night asked San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich why its important for the NBA to celebrate Black History Month.
Popovich isnt one to pull any punches:
I think its 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 hasnt 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?
It’s sooooo racist, that all these black athletes are millionaires..................
Yes. We know.
Congressional Black Caucus
La Raza (The Race)
Black Lives Matter
So what if I’m racist? Go kill yourself you old bastard.
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!
He’s just saying that so his players don’t pants him in the locker room.
He’s an idiot..always has been an idiot..he’s nothing more than a Commie loon who is pissed his beloved Obama is out of office
I’m at the point where the word “racist” is a compliment.
Just when you think pro-sports can’t dig the hole a little deeper....
LeBron James gets paid 120 million to throw a ball into a hoop..no ordinary person if they lived to be 1000 years old will ever see that kind of money
Well, it seems to be more racist now than it was 10 years ago.
After eight years of thebillegal Islamic infiltrator, what could be expected? O worked assiduously to create a race war in America
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.
It doesn't make every country racist.
The US has more tolerance for different people than just about anywhere on earth.
Pop.what have you done since Duncan has retired?
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.
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.
