Racists Shouldn’t be Allowed to be President”: Golden State Warriors Coach Takes a Dig at Donald Trump

The Situation

On Tuesday, that is, the 26th of May, a video surfaced online which showed a particularly heart-wrenching scene.

The post showed a white policeman kneeling a black man to death, while the man kept saying “I can’t breathe”.

The black man, later identified as George Floyd, made every citizen burn in a rage because of the entire act of racism.

This led to protests from plenty. A few NBA players also criticized these biases and injustice.

Among them were former NBA player Stephen Jackson and LeBron James who were quick to condemn the condition.

Trump’s Remarks

One such incident had taken place back in 2016 when Colin Kaepernick refused to stand up during the national anthem.

This happened during San Francisco 49er’s preseason game.

His comment was that he isn’t going to stand up to show pride in a flag for such a country that oppresses black people and people of colour.

On Friday, Steve Kerr had tweeted against Trump referring to his similar comments on Kaepernick’s protests and the current protests supporting George Floyd.

Procession

In 2017, Trump called kneeling NFL Players who were peacefully protesting police brutality ‘sons of bitches’.

Similarly, last night he called Minneapolis protestors ‘thugs’. Memes about the entire thing has been taking rounds.

Kerr made sure people knew this and went ahead to say that this is the reason why racists shouldn’t be allowed to be President.

In memory of George Flyod, the rally included his close friend, Stephen Jackson and Minnesota Timberwolves’ Karl-Anthony Towns and Josh Okogie among others.
