NBA Spoke about incident
Philadelphia 76ers head coach Doc Rivers gave his thoughts on the storming of the Capitol on Wednesday, as he reflected on what might have happened if those involved were all black.
The contrast between the way in which the Black Lives Matter protestors and the Donald Trump supporters were dealt with by the authorities generated a lot of criticism on social media.
“It’s pretty disturbing, obviously. Sad,” Rivers said when asked about the Capitol attack prior to the Sixers‘ match on Wednesday.
“But what is not is I [that] keep hearing that this is an attack on democracy. It’s not. Democracy will prevail. It always does.
“I will say it because I don’t think a lot of people want to: can you imagine today, if those were all black people storming the Capitol, and what would have happened? That, to me, is a picture that’s worth a thousand words for all of us to see.”
