    I don't give a flying f*** what an old Russian closet-commie thinks about ISIS-boy's protest. Popovich can fling his thankless ass onto his high horse and get the f*** out of my country. Go back to Russia, b!tch.

          What else can Popovich say? He is the head coach of a team that is predominately black. If he were to say otherwise, he would upset most of his players and fans for that matter. If he can use this issue to gain buy-in and motivate his team he will obviously.

                      Colin made his life worth something. Not one of his critics can say the same.

                                Popovich pandering to the social justice warrior crowd that excel at virtue signalling. For an educated man, he sure does not like to research and look into statistics, facts and root cause analysis to see what the actual causes of a lot of the "issues" actually are. Voicing grievances is fine but when you're pushing a narrative as opposed to factual information, that's when the message should be disregarded not praised. But hey Pop feels like its right so that means his opinion doesn't need anything factual to back it up. Go Spurs Go.....I guess.

                                    TheSocratesian on the Fourth of July he quoted Fredrick Douglass and in my opinion what he was saying is that ALL of America was not free on the Fourth of July was not freed on white america. Black pelle were still in chains and so the “freedom” of the country doesn’t mean the same thing to him as it does to you because it didn’t free our ancestors

                                    @Jasiri's Tunes Hateful statements about the US on the 4th of July, wearing clothes celebrating murderous regimes that are enemies of our nation and that refer to our law enforcement as pigs and all manner of vile crap. I could go on but you need to open your eyes and inform yourself.

                                                    It might be patriotic if he was protesting an actual problem instead of his mis-interpretation of a mainstream media lie. Black men are not in danger/ being killed off... they ARE the danger and doing most of the killing. Blacks are incompatible with society which is why they never built one of their own.

So Stephen Smith, what do white people want to know or hear? They know and have been hearing this same problem before you were born and they pass it on to generations. Wake up Smith.

                                                          Don't think calling America and Americans racist is very patriotic. The issue is people don't want politics injected into their entertainment. Had he done a protest outside of football and started a community activist group to bring attention to this issue I'm sure people would be much more supportive than how he went about doing it.

One of the greatest to ever coach basketball. I don't think there's a chance he gets one more ring in the next couple years but regardless I'm pulling for him.Regards from PA

He's a pampered rich kid complaining about social injustice . Why doesn't he put his money where his mouth is and spend some time actually doing something about it . His money could do a lot to help people who are less fortunate than he is . That would be patriotic.
