Rivers, 58 is a coach over two decades, who had spent most of his life while raising and guiding the young black men. Therefore the speech he gave after a game while the Republican National Convention was going on last month should have come as no surprise. His speech was turned into an ad by the Lincoln Project. This is a group that is lead by the Republicans and Conservatives. They believe that President Donald Trump is a significant threat to American democracy and is supporting the election of Joe Biden.
Rivers’ reaction on questions
When he was asked about how he could love America this much even when America didn’t love him back.
“What stands out to me is just watching the Republican Convention,” Rivers said. “You don’t need to be black to be outraged,” he said and the Lincoln Project highlighted. “You need to be American and outraged. “They’re spewing this fear, right? You hear Donald Trump and all of them talking about fear. We’re the ones getting killed. We’re the ones getting shot. We’re the ones that were denied to live in certain communities. We’ve been hung. We’ve been shot. All you do is keep hearing about fear. It’s amazing to me why we keep loving this country, and this country does not love us back. It’s really so sad.” He gave he ad as his blessing.
Mr. Rivers has been critical of the president before, and has stood in defense of NBA players’ recent showing of unity around Black Lives Matter said NBA players were “disgraceful” for kneeling during the national anthem, Mr. Rivers said “Likely, really, I don’t even care. We know that justice is on our side, right?”
There are various riots for the “Black Lives Matter” but still no concern is seen by the government. It’s the time that their rights need to be protected and they will be given equal respect in every field. This is the need of an hour to take black people into consideration and they must not face any dissemination in any field.
The images in the ad show protests, scenes from the Republican National Convention, and police in riot gear meeting peaceful protestors with force. It captures both the indomitable spirit of those seeking civil rights and the impact of having to constantly assert your humanity.
