"How dare the Republicans talk about fear"

Los Angeles Clippers’ Head Coach Doc Rivers stepped into the political ring Tuesday night when he blasted the Republican party’s talking points that have focused on “law and order” amid current civil unrest. Rivers spoke with assembled reporters before the 5th game of the NBA playoffs which the Clippers won to take a 3-2 lead over the Dallas Mavericks.

“How dare the Republicans talk about fear. We’re the ones that need to be scared. We’re the ones having to talk to every Black child—what white father has to give his son a talk about being careful if you get pulled over? It’s just ridiculous.”…

“It’s amazing why we keep loving this country, and this country does not love us back.” Rivers said as he got emotional. “It’s really so sad. Like, I should just be a coach. I’m so often reminded of my color. It’s just really sad. We got to do better. But we got to demand better.”
