Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich Bashes America As A Racist Country At Social Justice Summit

Videos by OutKick

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich appeared at a social justice summit organized by Brooklyn rapper Jay-Z and his Roc Nation company to highlight social causes — which has become Pop’s forte in recent years.

Popovich attended the ceremony to recognize attorney Barry Scheck, who works with the Innocence Project, a nonprofit legal organization that seeks to exonerate wrongly convicted individuals, and delivered a speech defining the U.S. as a country overcome with racism.

“This is the country we live in,” Popovich said from the podium.

“I don’t have the answers but it pisses me off. It hurts me. It confounds me. And I wonder, where the hell will I live? I live in a country I did not know exists. I knew there were racists, I understand that. But I had no idea it was to this level, and that the injustice and the seeking of power was so rampant that we are in the position we’re in now.”

The 73-year-old, all-time winningest head coach in the NBA has been putting in the work toward his political platform off the court; notably, as he nears retirement.

Pop and Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr have been among the most extreme voices for social justice reform coming out of the NBA where approximately 75% of the players are African American and the average salary is $8.5 million dollars per year

  1. To the degree that a pro sports HC is one of the highest profile individuals in a city, I wonder how “Popp” is perceived in San Antonio? Unlike Kerr who is still highly successful on-court and in a very radical left city/state;, Popp is a “used-to-be” in a not radical left city / state. … I’d be curious how San Antonians perceive their infamous American-hating Popp.

  2. Spurs are my favorite team, have been since the late 90’s when I was a youngin. Used to watch a good amount of NBA but it’s hard to watch now for a number of reasons. Not only the politics but the game itself has changed a ton and not really for the better. On top of that, the Spurs have now been mediocre for a solid 5 years. I can put up with woke-ass Pop if he’s putting a competitive team on the floor but I have no interest in watching a sub-500 team AND being lectured monthly about privilege and how shitty America is. If you want to shit on America, fine. Just apply the standards consistently when it comes to China.

  3. He’s well past his prime. His divisive BS that he vomits on a regular basis combined with running the Spurs into mediocrity make him intolerable. No idea why he hasn’t been fired yet. He needs to either bring the Spurs back to greatness or focus on being China’s cuckold.

  4. I wonder if jerkoff Popovich lives in an all black neighborhood and volunteers at a local soup kitchen and dedicates 40-50% of his wealth to black communities. God, I really hate this guy. He despises his own kind. Pathetic. He must have mommy or daddy issues.

  5. I am so tired of Poopovich spewing his bigotry (obstinate or unreasonable attachment to a belief, opinion, or faction, in particular prejudice against a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular group). I am so tired of the rich telling us how bad this country is.

  6. I absolutely despise this pile of crap. But I agree with one thing he spews about. The racism is terrible now in this country. White people, particularly white straight men, are discriminated against more than anyone!

  7. Popavich is a highly intelligent man. He doesn’t believe this bullshit he spews at all. He’s doing nothing more than catering to woke spoiled illiterate players….and well that’s why the nba is dead to me.

  8. Not a peep about the brutal chicoms think he has been around the America hating darkies too long of course all multi millionaires living the dream and maybe he didn’t notice the chicom league is almost all black yeah racist what a tool just gtfo

  9. Progressives like Popovich, who claim they are antiracist, tolerant, and intelligent, are the largest group of racists and bigots in America today. They believe the only way to solve racism is with more racism. Its an amazing display of lack of self awareness
