In the eyes of Carmelo Anthony and so many around the world, the “social Injustices” that are displayed on a daily basis give off a feeling from the movie ‘Groundhog Day.’
We go to sleep every night, only to wake up to news of police shootings, brutality and a lack of police-community relations that could split the country if something isn’t done.
The New York Knicks star believes nothing has changed since that night he joined Wade, LeBron and Chris Paul on stage.
They may have worsened Melo told The New York Daily News.
“Man, it’s the same thing I’ve been talking about the whole summer.”
“Everybody’s talking about it every day. (But) nothing is changing. And it’s only getting worse. It seems like it’s getting worse and worse every day. Something new is happening, something old is not getting fixed. That’s the state of where we at.”
Anthony is urging everyone to avoid getting desensitized toward social injustice.
“It’s sad because we start to get immune to it, about hearing the same things that’s happening over and over again every day,” he added. “When you start getting immune to it, that’s when things getting badder. And we don’t want to do that.”
NBA teams around the league have linked arms during the anthem ahead of preseason games in a representation of unity.
