San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was asked about police brutality and the protests being staged by athletes all across the country.
“I absolutely understand why they’re doing what they’re doing, and I respect their courage for what they’ve done,” he said.
“The question is whether it will do any good or not, because it seems that change really seems to happen through political pressure — whether it was Dr. King getting large groups of people together boycotting buses, or what’s happening in Carolina with the NBA and other organizations pulling events.”
I agree with Pop. The man only knows how to keep it real. The protests build awareness, be they on the football field, the basketball court, the soccer pitch, or in the streets — but they don’t build the political and economic pressure required to force the hand of politicians to bring about the change. We need to force their hand.
That’s why I just introduced InjusticeBoycott.com.
