Steve Kerr is known for his great takes outside basketball as the conversation of social injustice and racism came up once again after the recent tragic events in Minnesota.
The Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr talked on the racial equality talking on the death of George Floyd, which sparked a nationwide outrage.
The Warriors coach joined 95.7 The Game’s “Damon, Ratto & Kolsky” on Friday afternoon saying that the recent events led to soul searching.
“[Even] though I’ve tried, I haven’t done enough and I don’t think any of us have done enough,” Kerr said per NBC Sports. “When I say us, I mean white people. We haven’t done enough. It’s just the truth. If we had, this sort of thing wouldn’t be happening.”
And he continued: “I guess I’m saying it’s not enough to sign a petition, or send a tweet or make a statement. “We have to actually do something. There’s got to be a call to action, and then we need a list of things to check off, and we need to do them collectively and demand that those things be done. It’s embarassing and humiliating that we’re still in this place, and it’s tough to reconcile all this stuff.”
Kerr admitted that he has to do more on the matter and he will rely on his friends who are involved in race relations and community organizing to learn how he can help.
“There’s so many things that have to happen in order for the African American community to gain the racial equality, the social justice that they deserve,” he said in the interview. “And it matters because we’re all Americans, and we’re all together and what happens to one person affects what happens to the next person, and so on. It’s been really demoralizing to feel the divide that exists in the country, and especially when that divide is exacerbated by our President on a daily basis, on an hourly basis. I’m frustrated, I’m humiliated, but I’m also determined to try to do more.”
