Warriors’ Steve Kerr calls Donald Trump a racist
That trend continued on Friday when Kerr called Trump a racist on Twitter:
Thank you @PabloTorre for the perfect text. In 2017 Trump called kneeling NFL players who peacefully protested police brutality ‘sons of bitches.’ Last night he called Minneapolis protesters ‘thugs.’ This is why racists shouldn’t be allowed to be president. https://t.co/klcg8TeCDK

The tragic murder of George Floyd by a police officer in Minnesota has taken the world by storm. Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick knelt during the national anthem in 2016 to peacefully protest police brutality and he was called unpatriotic by a number of Americans, including Trump.
Kaepernick hasn’t played in the NFL since the 2016 season.
However, pretty much every NBA superstar took Kaepernick’s side in the whole ordeal, including Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry and former small forward Kevin Durant. Kerr has also been a strong advocate and supporter of Kaepernick. The championship player and head coach has never been a fan of Trump and Kerr will likely continue to bash the president when he deems it fit.
The NBA is trying to resume the 2019-20 season in July or August at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Kerr and the Warriors had the worst record in the league before games were suspended. This comes after the Warriors went to five straight NBA Finals.
Sports have taken a back seat as of late with the coronavirus pandemic and George Floyd murder dominating the headlines.
