Professional sports have become insanely political.
The NBA is one of the worst leagues when it comes to virtue-signaling.
Now one far-left NBA coach trashed the country with these three words.
Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is constantly in a run-and-gun battle with San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich for the title of the “wokest” coach in the NBA.
Kerr may have recently pulled ahead when he slammed America as racist.
The episode is because the Warriors are currently in a heated playoffs series with the Memphis Grizzlies.
A Memphis meteorologist called Warriors forward Draymond Green a “knuckle dragger,” a general insult for a stupid person.
However, the term was deemed racist because Green is black.
Meteorologist Joey Sulipeck wrote in a tweet, “And chew on this: Draymond runs his knuckle-dragging open mouth ALL GAME LONG, but mild-mannered Kyle Anderson disputes one call and gets ejected? Next level jackassery.”
Sulipeck later deleted the tweet and issued the apology, “Anyone who knows me knows what I am. Race is never an issue to me. To anyone who was offended, I apologize but there was no ill intent.”
During a press conference, Kerr said he wasn’t surprised because the country is racist, punctuating his point with the words “this is America.”

Sulipeck is now under “full investigation,” and many Memphis fans are not happy about it.
Joey did nothing wrong. I’m from Memphis and this is nothing other than a passionate display of hometown loyalty. Joey is a Memphis staple. We love him. Don’t bother him!

Kerr has no problem slamming America as racist, a country where any insensitive comment that is deemed racist gets investigated.
In actual racist countries—such as China, a nation that Kerr and the NBA are reluctant to criticize—complaints fall on deaf ears.
At the outset of COVID, migrants and students from Africa were barred from hotels and restaurants in China.
When Kerr was once asked about China’s treatment of the Uyghur Muslims, he deflected to gun crime in America.
Kerr and other leftists know that America is a soft target.
They can say whatever they want in America, but that is not the case in other countries.
And because of the NBA’s dependency on the Chinese market, players, executives, and coaches like Kerr are not going to speak up about actual racism and oppression.
