ONN – Doc Rivers Blasts GOP Fear-Mongering During Post-Game Press Conference Mavericks Clippers Game 5
This started out as a routine-for-the-NBA-Bubble press conference with LA Clippers coach Doc Rivers. But he then took it all to a left-turn and brought out for public consumption what was on the mind of pretty much everyone who’s either black or has a good heart and knows wrong when they see it.
The shooting of Jacob Blake in the back seven times by a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin this week and just three months to the day of the George Floyd murder, had many asking what more had to be done to stop this police killing of blacks in America. To date, nothing has been done, and as I say all the time, protesting is not working. Changing laws works. Here’s Coach Rivers:
Listen, um, just just watching the Republican Revenge uh convention and this this feeling this fear right by oh you hear Donald Trump and all of them talking about fear. We’re the ones getting killed! We’re the ones getting shot at! We’re the ones that we’ll deny to live in certain countries. We’ve been hung. We’ve been shot. And all you do is keep hearing about fear.
It’s, it’s amazing why we keep loving this country, and this country does not love us back. And it’s just it’s really so sad, and how he can just be a coach and it’s so often reminded of my color, you know?
It’s just really sad. We got to do better. But we got to demand better. Like we got, you know, it’s just funny. We protest and they send riot guards, right? Uh they send people in riot outfits. They go to Michigan with guns and they’re spinning on cops and nothing happens.
The training has to change in the police force. The unions have to be taken down in the police force. My dad was a cop. I believe in good cops we’re not trying to defund the police and take all their money away we’re trying to get them to protect us just like they protect everybody else.
I didn’t want to talk about it before the game because it’s so hard, like, to just keep watching that that video. If if you watch that video, you don’t need to be black to be outraged. The republicans talk about fear? We’re the ones that need to be scared. we’re the ones having to talk to every black child. One white father has to give his son a talk about being careful if you get pulled over. It’s, it’s just ridiculous. And it keeps getting it keeps going on. There’s no charges. No charges. Nothing.
All we’re asking is you live up to the Constitution. That’s all we’re asking for everybody, for everyone, thank you.
That was on TNT’s Inside The NBA and that was after the Clippers Mavericks. Actually, I put that on freeze. I want you to understand the significance of what you just saw, and i’m doing news commentary on this. That’s an NBA head coach making an unprecedented social commentary that needed to be said, that’s talked about in every household like this one. He basically turned what was an inside conversation more outside – we’ve held these conversations again and again and again but again he’s right this kind of psychotic behavior that you see keeps happening again and again
I’ve said racism as a mental illness – it is. It’s sick, and we have to cure the sickness. It’s evil – there’s nothing good that comes of it at all. And we’ve allowed it to infect this country and slow us down economically and socially. And no one who’s an American citizen should want that.
So god bless doc rivers for doing that.
