Greg Popovich: "We live in a racist country that hasn't figured it out yet."
quote:

Gregg Popovich is asked about Black History Month and the efforts the league makes to promote it. Starts by pointing out the obvious importance in a league as diverse as the NBA. Then: “More importantly, we live in a racist country that hasn’t figured it out yet.”


quote:

Pop continued: "It's always important to bring attention to it, even if it angers some people. The point is that you have to keep it in front of everybody's nose, and understand that it hasn't been taken care of and we still have a lot of work to do."

I agree we aren't perfect, but I for one am sick of these a-holes acting like we aren't better than 99% of other countries when it comes to racism.

Then name a country that's not racist Pop. Name one other fricking country that's better than the U.S. in race relations.

Interesting that Asians, Jews, Indians and Hispanics don’t seem to be having any issues climbing the economic ladder in this country. Why is that, Pop?

I want my turn to say it

Then how come the NBA is 90 percent black Pops? It can't just be because they are generally faster , quicker , taller etc right? Nah I think y'all just hate white people. Racist.

I like that the Spurs have become irrelevant ever since Pop became such a politically outspoken douche bag.

Pop seems much more interested in social issues than coaching the spurs these days. He should just hang it up

I'd like for Pop to go sit in an Ultra section of a soccer team in east Europe and see just how racist America is. Let me know the last time fans in America chanted monkey sounds and threw bananas as a unified group during any sporting event.

We'll be better when black people stop acting like they're not racist and white people are shocked that they might be racist either.

Accept your faults and the country can take a step forward in realizing everyone had an issue and it's not one or the other.
