His response: We are already there.
He said: “Considering the coronavirus and all the racial violence we have been aware of, this is already a turning point.”
“Now there is a chance to attract everyone’s attention. We can do something now. We have caught everyone’s attention and realized that something is wrong. We can do something now. We can find a way to investigate Duty of bad police.
“We can find a way to make sure everyone can hear, everyone has the opportunity to vote and hear their voices politically. This is a good thing for our country. This is not a bad thing, I I hope people can understand and support it.”
Moderator Rachel Nichols also asked Abdul-Jabbar that those who refused to protest were too violet, and the big man pointed out that these people also did not approve of peaceful protests, Colin · Colin Kaepernick is a good example.
“They didn’t want to mention this topic at all,” Abdul-Jabbar said. “As far as they are concerned, everything is fine. We cannot continue this dynamic. Too many people have lost their lives. This is downward pressure on everything we try to do in the country.”
