Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: ‘People Pushed to the Edge’


Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, writing at the LA Times:

Yes, protests often are used as an excuse for some to take
advantage, just as when fans celebrating a hometown sports team
championship burn cars and destroy storefronts. I don’t want to
see stores looted or even buildings burn. But African Americans
have been living in a burning building for many years, choking on
the smoke as the flames burn closer and closer. Racism in America
is like dust in the air. It seems invisible — even if you’re
choking on it — until you let the sun in. Then you see it’s
everywhere. As long as we keep shining that light, we have a
chance of cleaning it wherever it lands. But we have to stay
vigilant, because it’s always still in the air.
