Throwing a new opinion into the crowded playing field on racism in America is San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, who believes all white people need to feel “uncomfortable” in order to move them away from their inborn privileges.
Speaking on The Paul Finebaum Show on ESPN2 Monday, Popovich said, “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.”
Popovich has been reading up on the subject of white privilege, as he admitted, and further opined, “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.”
Wait a second… there’s no such thing as “whiteness” but whites are supposed to check all the privileges they’re born with? Don’t let the Black Lives Matter crowd hear you say whiteness doesn’t exist. The coach continued in his confusion:
“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.”
Okay, so, whiteness exists now? Coach?
This is why being a leftist is so difficult. They can’t keep all the rules straight.
