Ben Maller: “‘Wokesters’ in the NBA such as Steve Kerr, Gregg Popovich, and the worst of the bunch LeBron James are all outspoken critics of anything and everything in America of the 'injustices' that take place here, but when it came to supporting China and Hong Kong, the three ‘big activists’ became the three stooges and all went radio silent. It was comical to see these guys backpedal like they’re in a defensive backs drill at the scouting combine in the NFL, or they’re trying to run backwards from a live hand grenade… Now these contrasting principals have popped up yet again. The NBA has taken a unified position when it comes to this issue of zipping their lips on Anti-Semitism. They don’t care. There are no declarations from the NBA community saying how Dwyane Wade, Allen Iverson, and Stephen Jackson are not right. The problem is that you’re going to get your own medicine thrown back at you if you’re the NBA, because a lot of these guys in the NBA have said ‘enough is enough, if you stay silent then you’re complicit in racism!’ By that mindset, YOU'RE complicit in Anti-Semitism. That’s YOUR problem and you don’t seem to take it seriously.” (Full Audio Above)
