Doc Rivers sends an emotional message on social injustice | Black Lives Matter

Why should Filipino-Americans support the Black Lives Matter movement?

Because you can replace "Black lives" with "asian lives," and "Native American lives."  Back in the twentieth century, you could've replaced it with "Irish-American lives," "Italian-American lives," and even "Jewish-American lives."  At one time or another, the Irish, the Italians, and the Jews were not considered "white."

Note the Caucasians who use hyphenated-Americans as ethnicity.  And note that no one says "English-Americans" or "German-Americans" or even "French-American."  Think about it.  Even whiteness has different levels of white.  Tell me that's not a caste system.  That's white supremacy sh*t.

And you know where sh*t belongs!

'We keep loving this country and this country does not love us back' — NBA coach Doc Rivers

Doc Rivers: "What stands out to me is, just watching the Republican convention, and they're spewing this fear. All you hear is Donald Trump and all of them talking about fear. We're the ones getting killed. We're the ones getting shot. We're the ones that, we're denied to live in certain communities. We've been hung. We've been shot. And all you do is keep hearing about fear."
