Stephen Curry said he hopes to “make a statement” by declining to visit the White House and President Donald Trump following the Warriors’ NBA Championship.
Curry’s comments came during a team press conference Friday, and he said
“The things that he((Trump has) said and the things he hasn’t said at the right times, we won’t stand for,” Curry said. “By acting or not going, hopefully that will inspire some change when it comes to what we tolerate in this country and what’s accepted and what we turn a blind eye to.”
Curry cited the incident that went on with the Seattle Seahawks’ Michael Bennett and other incidents of racism as giving him a desire to stand up and make a change.
