I actually thought the same thing and was very disappointed. It’s one thing to talk about things we can change but to put the blame on whites was not right. My heart sank when he said that. The only person responsible are the evil people who do these things.
I agree with you. This stuff always turns political. Especially in a election year. Every escape we have has been taken away since this virus hit. Can please have something fun to talk about to get away from things. Now we have to have all our sports muddled with all of this.
"This is not a black problem. This is a white problem.", said Chris Ballard. Bologna! To generalize this and to claim racism does not exist in the black community and only exists in the white community is either another sign of his naivety or he is patronizing people for his and the organization's gain. This is a Derek Chauvin, Thomas Kiernan Lane, Alexander Kueng, Tou Nmn Thao, and everyone else who judges people by the color of their skin instead of their deeds problem. For him to claim I am a racist because I am white, he can go suck an egg and I demand an apology.
The sad thing I think about is as long as there are differences between people being anything from race, gender, orientation, economic, etc.... People will always be targeted and treated unfairly. People are imperfect and there ALWAYS will be bad people. I hope one day this will be untrue but I don't know if its possible in my lifetime for our species to eliminate hate from everyone...
