Spurs coach responding to Black History Month says America is still Racist
San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich really appreciates Black History Month, and he wants Americans to focus on how racist this country still is.
On Monday, after a game between the San Antonio Spurs and the Utah Jazz, the Spurs head coach was asked about how the NBA was promoting Black History Month. He started off fine, saying that it’s important to keep in mind, especially considering the race of the majority of players in the league. “To honor that and understand it is pretty simplistic. How would you ignore that?” he asked. But Popovich wasn’t done; there was virtue to be signaled.
“But more importantly,” he said, “we live in a racist country that hasn’t figured it out yet.” But thankfully, we have brave truth-tellers like the coach to help us along. “And it’s always important to bring attention to it even if it angers some people.” Fight the power, bro!

“The point is, you have to keep it in front of everybody’s nose so that they understand it, that it still hasn’t been taken care of, and we have a lot of work to do.”
Who’s “we?” And what work do you recommend, Coach? Are there some drills we can do?
This is not the first time Popovich has been a political grandstander. He suffers regularly from the moral outrage only Donald Trump can inspire so well. Recently he called the president a “soulless coward” and “pathological liar” in reference to his comments on third-world countries.
“But what really is disgusting to me, is even if you wanted to say he is not a racist, or even as he says he is the least racist of anybody … He is certainly willing to wield race like weapon and use it for his own purposes.”
Responding last fall to questions about how President Trump would handle notifying relatives of those lost in war the Spurs coach Popovich said the below.
“This man in the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become large by belittling others. This has of course been a common practice of his, but to do it in this manner—and to lie about how previous presidents responded to the deaths of soldiers—is as low as it gets. We have a pathological liar in the White House, unfit intellectually, emotionally, and psychologically to hold this office, and the whole world knows it, especially those around him every day. The people who work with this president should be ashamed, because they know better than anyone just how unfit he is, and yet they choose to do nothing about it. This is their shame most of all.”
It is pretty obvious that the Spurs coach is a leftist. And for the left there is never enough done in America for the black community. The NBA is 70-75% black and it is not enough for guys like Greg Popovich. They find racism everywhere still in the US today.
