Gregg Popovich Says ‘We Live in a Racist Country,’ Talks Black History Month

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich explained Monday night why he thinks it’s important for the NBA to celebrate Black History Month. 

"I think it’s pretty obvious," he told reporters. "The league is made up of a lot of black guys. To honor that and understand it is pretty simplistic. How would you ignore that? But more importantly, we live in a racist country that hasn’t figured it out yet. And it’s always important to bring attention to it, even if it angers some people. The point is, you have to keep it in front of everybody’s nose so they understand it still hasn’t been taken care of and we have a lot of work to do."
