Milwaukee Bucks legendary center took to the LA Times to shares his views on the recent protest that this country has seen recently in the wake of more police brutality in the United States resulting in another death. Kareem has been known to not bite his tongue with his views in the past. Starting his professional basketball career in 1969 with the Bucks, Kareem has seen a thing or two regarding race relations in his lifetime. He penned an editorial about why Black people in this country feel "pushed to the edge".
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. - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
