Gregg Popovich, the head coach of NBA’s San Antonio Spurs, said that white people “need to be made to feel uncomfortable” is response to Trump’s criticism of NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem, Infowars reports.
During a team press conference Monday, the NBA champion coach said “there has to be an uncomfortable element in the discourse” for change to take place.
“People have to be made to feel uncomfortable, and especially white people because we’re comfortable. We still have no clue of what being born white means,” Popovich said.
He added that those who are born white have advantages that are built up and solidified for hundreds of years but many people have difficulty looking at it.
But Popovich failed to explain how tearing down “white privilege” will prevent the rising number of murders inflicted to blacks by black people.
Every year, about 2,400 black men are killed by other black men, compared to only 16 unarmed black men killed by cops or about the same number of people get struck by lightning each year, according to Infowars.
