The last 24 hours has turned the world of sports into a verbal warzone. The old shut up and get paid edict that most athletes lived by since Michael Jordan hit the scene in 1984 is officially dead. Thanks to Donald Trump, athletes are quite inspired to speak out against oppression and the racial, educational and financial oppression suffered by minorities in this country.
Even retired Los Angeles Lakers great Kobe Bryant has chimed in on the Trump vs. America debates. Add Black Mambas name to the growing list of iconic athletes who have publicly denounced the President and see him as a detriment to the country.
A #POTUS whose name alone creates division and anger. Whose words inspire dissension and hatred can’t possibly “Make America Great Again
Trump took to Twitter early Saturday morning and rescinded his invitation to the Golden State Warriors to visit him at the White House because Steph Curry, Steve Kerr and crew were hesitant to accept the invitation.
Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!
Trump is at war with the NFL, the NBA, Black Live Matter, Mexicans, pro athletes who dont stand for the anthem and anyone who speaks out against white supremacy or the inept way the country is being run.
Good to see the Mamba check in and be heard. Point taken Kobe.
