For someone who is held in such high regard by the NBA community, it is disgusting hearing this type of language being used. America isn’t a racist country. If you look at the laws today there are none discriminating against people of color. In fact due to laws like affirmative action sometimes people of color get an upper hand. This type of rhetoric is beyond disgusting and has no place in American society. Gregg Popovich coaches in a league that is made up of 81.7% people of color a racist country would never allow that to happen.
