America is racist, horribly evil and systemically oppressive. When it’s not randomly killing black people for no reason, it’s banning schools from indoctrinating children with the fact that all white people are racist.
WNBA superstar, which is up there with ‘curling great’ and ‘backalley dart throwing legend’, Napheesa Collier had a whole lot of opinions on “systemic racism“. But suddenly she learned to love America.
Or at least refuse to leave it.
WNBA player Napheesa Collier said on Monday that she doesn’t plan to play overseas for the foreseeable future in the aftermath of WNBA star Brittney Griner’s recent detention in Russia.
“It’s really scary. You really have to evaluate, anyone who wants to go overseas, what it’s going to look like,” Collier, who was alongside Washington Mystics player Elizabeth Williams, told “CNN This Morning.” “We’re in a big market also, like a lot of money to be had there. But you have to look at — their rules are a lot different than ours, their laws.”
Their rules are the same as ours. No drugs. It’s not that complicated.
“For me, it’s just not worth it. It’s not the same for every player,” Collier added, noting that playing in the states full time is a better option for her since she has a family.
Suddenly, America is not the worst place around for the daughter of an immigrant from Sierra Leone. Collier, who is half-white and is marrying a white guy, has spent a lot of time calling America racist only to belatedly admit that she’s only safe here.
