San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich decided he was going to weigh in on what’s happening with the NFL, and in doing so, he alienated the entire white audience of the NBA.

Popovich was asked at a press conference about the whole “take a knee” controversy, and what he said has people rather up set, for good reason.


According to Popovich, a rich white guy who has a $55 million contract over five years, it’s white people and their privilege that are the problem, so they “need to be made to feel uncomfortable” (read: punished) if anything is ever going to change.

“Obviously,” Popovich said,” race is the elephant in the room and we all understand that.”


Except that it’s not white people making this all about race.

“Unless it is talked about constantly, it’s not going to get better,” he said. “‘Oh, they’re talking about that again. They pulled the race card again. Why do we have to talk about that?’”


“Well, because it’s uncomfortable, and there has to be an uncomfortable element in the discourse for anything to change,” said Popovich. “Whether it’s the LGBT movement, women’s suffrage, race, it doesn’t matter.”

“People have to be made to feel uncomfortable, and especially white people because we’re comfortable,” he continued. “We still have no clue of what being born white means.”

Of course, that wasn’t the end of Popovich’s anti-white babbling, as he went on to lament that “white privilege” (whatever the F that is) gives white people “advantages that are systemically, culturally, psychologically there” in being born white that “have been built up and cemented for hundreds of years.”

This is the exact same garbage that lost Hillary Clinton the election, that’s been widely rejected by the country, and that most people think is 100 percent bovine excrement. However, that didn’t stop Popovich from doubling down on the failed critical race theory.

“It can’t be something that is on their plate on a daily basis. People want to hold their position, people want the status quo, people don’t want to give that up. And until it’s given up, it’s not going to be fixed,” he added.

Oddly enough, Popovich never explained how it’s a privilege for a white person with good grades to be denied entry into college so that a minority with lesser grades can be accepted, or how Affirmative Action has made it so excellent white candidates for jobs are glossed over so that mediocre minorities can fill the position. He also never explained how making white people “uncomfortable” over being born white is going to help solve the roughly 2,500 black-on-black murders committed annually, or what it’s going to do to help lift minorities out of poverty.

Additionally, hard data shows that despite having a much lower rate of violent crime than blacks, white people are killed far more often by police. That’s not to mention, all of these protests are over around 16-20 unarmed black people being killed a year, out of a population of around 45 million.

So really, Popovich’s ranting is nothing more than leftist virtue signaling and demagoguery over non-existent issues, all so he can appease the players in his league, the majority of whom are black liberals, which further negates the argument that America suffers from systemic racism.

But hey, the left loves doubling down on bad ideas, so why would he be any different?
