The NBA and its associates have always shown respect to the victims of these incidents. After the killings of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and many other African-American individuals, the league showed its support by making its player kneeling during the national anthem a compulsory act.

Current President of the United States, Joe Biden recently spoke on a touchy topic uttering the sentence, “Even back in the old days when we had real segregationists… at least we’d end up eating together.”

President Joe Biden has a long list of controversial remarks made against various racial communities. This is certainly not the first time he also openly blurted out remarks. Last year, the President was slammed for insulting the Latino community in the States during a campaign to spread awareness of the vaccine. He said, “They’re worried that they’ll be vaccinated and deported.”

It is quite disheartening to witness the leader of one of the most powerful governments in the world get caught up in controversy like this. Former tight end and current analyst on the Undisputed, Shannon Sharpe was not too pleased by the leader’s words. He took to Twitter saying, “That’s nothing to be proud of Mr. President.” Obviously, Joe Biden’s words felt as if he was eliminating the evils of separation.
