Will Barton believes only a revolution will change the current social climate in the United States.

The forward of the Denver Nuggets also thinks wearing George Floyd T-shirts and doing peaceful protests will not change anything.

“I don’t see us going down there and wearing George Floyd T-shirts before the games and then after a game, being interviewed, saying we need to change.

I’ll tell you right now, I don’t really see that helping. I feel like it’s too late in the ballgame. We’ve been going through this for 400-plus years now. I feel like the only way for real change is going to come is a revolution.

Here it is 2020, and we’re still doing peaceful protests and peaceful speeches for something that’s already a law, that’s already in place. To me, peaceful protesting and speeches and all that, I think it’s past that point.

I don’t think us playing and wearing those T-shirts and all that is going to do it anymore. I don’t feel like that’s enough. I think a revolution is the only way at this point,” Barton said in a an interview with Mike Singer of the Denver Post.
