Sacramento Kings announcer Grant Napear was placed on administrative leave for tweeting, "All Lives Matter."
Seriously?? The man acknowledged that every life matters regardless of race, gender, age, or status and he was suspended? Is this a joke? For one, that is his opinion. Since when are people not allowed to state an opinion? ESPECIALLY one that claims that all people are equal and deserve to live?
On Sunday, former Kings player Demarcus Cousins asked Napear for his views on the Black Lives Matter movement. In response, Napear tweeted: “All Lives Matter…Every Single One!” The phrase “All Lives Matter,” is seen as disparaging by the Black Lives Matter movement.
Napear, who also has a show on KHTK radio, attempted to apologize for the remark.
Then to make it even worse, he had to apologize for "countering" what the hate group stands for.
“I’m not as educated on BLM as I thought I was,” Napear said. “I had no idea that when I said ‘All Lives Matter’ that it was counter to what BLM is trying to get across.”
That reasoning did not wash with former King Chris Webber, who said he was unsurprised by Napear’s response.
“Demarcus we know and have known who grant is,” Webber tweeted. “The team knows as well. I’ve told them many times. They’ve seen it. They know who he is.”
The Kings have said that they will investigate Napear’s tweet. Though, it’s unclear exactly what they’re going to investigate given the perfectly blunt nature and meaning of what the Napear said.
I will never support the Black Lives Matter movement. You want to know why? Because black lives do not matter to that movement. If they did, then they would be protesting the death of the federal officer murdered by rioters in California, who was black. They would be protesting the black on black crime and the extremely high black abortion rates.
Black lives do not matter to Black Lives Matter.
