    It speaks out to how many more people of color are going to get killed or die at the hands of the force, of police brutality? How many more families are going to get denied housing? How many more Black men and women are going to get denied certain job opportunities? The list goes on.

    I feel like there is so much that hasn’t been done for so many people. There hasn’t been justice for a lot of people and it’s sad and wrong.

    Baze was talking about education reform and things like that, and I think it’s all racism — blatant racism or systematic racism — so that’s why I picked anti-racist for my jersey. I think it touches a lot of bases.
    De'Aaron Fox
    Kent Bazemore, Education Reform
    Marvin Bagley III, Freedom
    I picked Freedom. That’s what’s going to be on my jersey. That one words means a lot to me, whenever I see it or hear it. There’s a lot going on, and with all of this going on, until African Americans have an equal playing field, we’re not free.

    I put peace because everybody is fighting for a peace of mind especially all of the Black Lives Matter things. The whole thing that everybody is fighting for at the end of the day calls for peace for all of us. To feel that equality in all areas and aspects of life. I feel like that’s the reason why I picked that.

    I honestly think that the NBA messed up a bit by having the pre-approved list on there. I've read that some guys like Butler wanted a blank name plate, some wanted to use names of minorities killed by cops, some wanted to used phrases not listed on here.

    Should've still allowed players to submit for approval of one offs imo

    I appreciate the nba players and analysts not crucifying players for having differing opinions on this, they're still United and linked even when one of them stands tall. Respect. It's just the media still asking cringe inducing questions. That white liberal lady asked if isaac believed that black lives matter lol (its such a great slogan btw, great branding) and when she didn't get the answer she wanted, forced him to repeat what he had already said. It's like, aren't you a part of the cult, why didn't you perform the ritual?

    Here is Donald J Trump signature clothing brand admitting to exploiting Chinese and others and justifying it at the same time.

    So maybe exploiting people is not that bad if Donald J Trump signature clothing brand says it’s not.

    It's stupid for the simple fact that players couldn't choose any phrase they wanted. So if a player wanted blue loves matter, support police, whatever, they couldn't do it and would be crucified. Our stupid country thinks every law enforcement officer is a klan member.
