Default OK, the TRUTH about the "protest" has finally come out!

It's NOT about any of the lame excuses we've all been treated to.

------------

NBA Coach: ‘White People Especially’ Need To Be Made ‘Uncomfortable’


Coach: White People Must Be Uncomfortable | The Daily Caller

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich claimed on ESPN2’s “The Paul Finebaum Show” Monday that “people have to be made to feel uncomfortable,” specifically singling out white people.

“Well, because it’s uncomfortable, and there has to be an uncomfortable element in the discourse for anything to change. 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. We still have no clue of what being born white means,” he stated.

“If you read some of the recent literature, you’ll realize there really is no such thing as whiteness, but we kind of made that up. That’s not my original thought, but it’s true,” Popovich said.

He added, “Because you were born white, you have advantages that are systemically, culturally, psychologically there. And they have been built up and cemented for hundreds of years. But many people can’t look at it. It’s too difficult.”

“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,” the coach stated.

I cannot "give up" being white.

Pretty sure there are tens and tens of millions of incredibly uncomfortable white people in the USA who have it a hell of a lot worse than professional sports athletes and coaches, SJW university attendees, etc.

Jobless and poverty stricken thanks to the flood of cheap labor into the USA and flood of blue collar jobs out of the USA thanks to the immigration and trade policies of the establishment.

Human suffering and "discomfort" is WHY Trump is President, and believe me Gregg Popovich, not a single damn one of those Trump voters has a problem with Trump calling flag/anthem protestors SOBs.

ok, fine. i'll be uncomfy.

i'll trade places with a black football player. he can enjoy my life and i'll suffer thru his life. $4m a year for 2 years will really put a dent in my plans.

he'll have to get by on whatever my savings can generate (it's far less than $4m). he'll have to live in the country, haul water to drink and bath with, put up with people who won't pay for what you made them, cook dinner each night, take care of the dog, take care of Mrs. DAB real well, and get by driving a 2013 truck with a dent. no night clubbing, no drinking, some Bible study each day, and just a few true friends. deer season starts next sunday, rifle is sighted in.

meanwhile, i'll do my best to run or push or jump while the coach screams at me and every monday i'll cash my game check for about $250,000. guess i'll have to deal with quarterly taxes too. and the sucky travel at someone else's expense. and all those kids who adore me and want to say HI and get my autograph. and then deal with the endorsement contracts and sponsors.

let me know when you want to trade.

oh, playing football? i suck at it. but it's part of the deal. by the way, the driveway needs some grading and the barn is a mess.

The protest is about an agenda of division. They need Americans to believe we are all separate and unequal and the government will help us all be equal. Well except for some more equal animals.

Oh yea, "Pop". He's a USAF Academy grad. He's also a millionaire NBA Head Coach with, I think, five championship rings. No one gets to where he is without being very talented. And here he is offering his opinion. A psychological opinion while being trained in putting a round ball into a basket ball goal. Could he be right? Possibly. But I think I'd rather take the opinion of someone else.

Any business, and that includes the NFL and the NBA, that trashes its customers won't stay in business long. Economics 101.

True. When I owned each of my two businesses, local political candidates asked me to put their sign in my window. Even though I voted for them I was not interested in pissing off nearly half of my customers.

this is also true of other groups.

you have the left yelling at you, calling you nasty, untrue names, and then they expect you to come around to their way of thinking.

sorry, that's not how you start a conversation.

tell me why your idea is best. without calling me stupid.

oh, can't do it, can you.

So just to clarify, a bunch of millionaire black people kneeling is supposed to make me feel "uncomfortable" and "guilty" about being white?

Nah, not so much...

My dad used to say, "If I wanted any shit from you, I'd unscrew your head and dip it out". Something similar here is "Action pretender".

It was always obvious to anyone paying attention that these players were simply virtue signalling that white people, particularly white males, and especially white males that didn't vote for Hillary - are racists. That's what it was always about. We know.

I spent almost 35 years in international sales. I've done legal business with communists, muslims, white supremacists, leftist radicals and many other groups I am diametrically opposed top politically. Whenever I was pushed to express an opinion I figured a way to remain neutral or would just state that I'm here to do business not politics.


When I was OFF the clock among people who I could have a conversation with, which was rarely, I'd have political discussions. Never on the job.

Popovich is going to need to find a why to become white so he can blend in and feel as uncomfortable as his peers are going to make him from now on.

But, I am glad some one finally is admitting the truth behind the message. Now that it is out there they are going to find the majority of America is not uncomfortable just bemused.
