    I'm not racist and I've never seen any kind of racism, therefore this is not true.

    San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich says it is important to celebrate Black History Month even though "we live in a racist country."

    Popovich made the comments before San Antonio's game against Utah on Monday.

    "I think it's pretty obvious," Popovich said. "The league is made up of a lot of black guys. To honor [Black History Month] and understand it is pretty simplistic. How would you ignore that? But more importantly, we live in a racist country that hasn't figured it out yet. And it's always important to bring attention to it, even if it angers some people. The point is that you have to keep it in front of everybody's nose so that they understand it, that it still hasn't been taken care of, and we have a lot of work to do."

    "More importantly, we live in a racist country that hasn't figured it out yet. It's always important to bring attention to it, even if it angers some people.

    Popovich has been a longtime critic of President Donald Trump, including calling him a "soulless coward" and also reiterated his stance of how there is still prevalent social injustice and racism in the United States.

    "If you were born white, you automatically have a monstrous advantage educationally, economically, culturally in this society," Popovich said. "And all the systemic roadblocks that exist, whether it's in a judicial sense, a neighborhood sense with laws, zoning, education -- we have huge problems in that regard that are very complicated, but take leadership, time and real concern to try to solve. It's a tough one because people don't really want to face it. And it's in our national discourse."

    Since I don't know what you get paid for this trolling, perhaps I miss characterize it. Maybe pimping covers it better.

    How exactly is quoting the NBA's best coach in a basketball forum trolling?

    But I do have to admit SlyPimpDog has a great ring to it.

    I would comment on this, but I've heard white men aren't allowed to have opinions anymore.

    I've also heard that white men are being shit on. I've heard it's an issue. But I don't have an opinion on that.

    I'd just like to point out that if all things were equal he most likely wouldn't have been able to become a head coach in the NBA..................You don't think he's planning on stepping down do ya?

    It should actually be "We live in a racist world".

    The fellow is a pretty good coach, but doesn't make him a pretty good systems analyst. Not a damn thing in this statement is true even though Pop said it.
