There are those defining moments in life when we as black people have to champion a cause for the greater good of our race, and not just our personal gain.
Los Angeles Clipper’s head coach, Glenn “Doc” Rivers not only drop the ball when it came to boycotting the game, but he also expressed disapproval of his team wearing the black band on their arm.
Harriet Tubman, Dr King, and all the black luminaries of the past are rolling over in their graves I’m sure. If they all thought like that, we’d still be that much further behind.
Dr Martin Luther King was offered millions of dollars to
end his movement but he was still willing to make the sacrifices because he truly believed in what he was doing.
The racist and inflammatory comments on the part of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, isn’t nearly as repulsive as the compromising reaction of coach Glenn Doc Rivers.
While real black people were outraged over Sterling’s racist comments, and urging the team not to play the game, Rivers assuaged the severity of the comments saying: “Nothing is more important than our quest for the championship.”
River’s even expressed his disapproval when his team protested before the game by wearing black bands on their arm. Maybe his white wife is forbidding him to take a radical stance.
All these House Negros (especially Doc Rivers) should be repudiated by every black person on the planet. – 30 –
