Houston Rockets guard Thabo Sefolosha talks to AP after watching the video of George Floyd’s death in Minesota.
Sefolosha said he was attacked by a group of New York Police Department officers in April 2015 while they were arresting him outside a nightclub. On that occasion Sefolosha broke his leg.
I was just horrified by what I saw, Sefolosha said. That could have been me.
People talk about a few rotten apples, but you know, in my experience and from what we’re seeing, I think it’s deeper than that as a culture that’s deeply rooted in it, to be honest. That’s just my honest opinion. I think it’s really … part of a culture where it’s deeper than just a few bad apples.
I’m mad, for sure, Sefolosha said. That’s for sure. I mean, it’s 2020. Nobody should have to go through this in this time, especially after black people have given up so much for America. Black people have given up so much and done so much for this country. It’s hurtful to see it this way.
