    Every African American millionaire athlete likes to villify the police and complain about America, the country that pays them millions, yet stay silent about China because they won't get paid if they do so.

    Shouldn't the concept of liberty be universal? Isn't that what anti-slavery leaders fought for?

    This is something that really needs to be discussed if we care about equality.

    No one cares about equality. We only care about equality when it relates to us. We care about police because they affect us. We care about racism because that affects us. China didn't do anything to black Americans or white Americans or even Chinese Americans. That's why no one cares (really care). Especially when caring means losing your job and millions of dollars.

    Yes he is.

    He supports civil rights movements wearing black lives matters and I can't breath t-shirt and all that, and at the same time supported with his words "I am sorry" a regime that exterminates people and destroys freedom of speech.

    I hope he gets better educated before he hurries to open his mouth.

    If he already knows about the situation, then I can safely say that he is a whore for money.

    Harden doesn’t even know anything about Hong Kong.

    all he knows is that China is angry at Morey. If u asked him to tell u why he thinks China is so upset, I doubt he could tell u.

    he should’ve just said nothing since he wasn’t educated on the subject and didn’t even know what he was actually apologizing for

    Nice to see someone brave enough to tell it like it is.

    He knows where the money comes from , and he knows he can say whatever he wants in America and make more of it if he does.

    However, that's not the case with China so the POV changes.

    Hypocrisy is the death of social change at any level... real activists should just distance themselves from sports and etnertainment.

    If that's the reason he did it then yeah, but we don't actually know that. I suspect he did it for Morey.

    Why point out that James Harden is an "African American millionaire athlete," who "likes to vilify the police and complain about America, the country that pays them millions," which is an outright lie? The answer is very clear based on your posts in D&D. There is a word for you which I will not use here. Politics and bigotry are best discussed in the forum @Clutch created for that purpose. Debate and Discussion. I suggest that you take this discussion there.

    Shaquille O'Neal, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, when have you heard them complain about anything?

    Also african americans actually BUILT America from ground up, so asians, hispanics & other ethnic groups can come here. Yet you're the one complaining. Does that make you a hypocrite?

    Seriously, can we keep the China thing in one thread here? I understand it affects the Rockets so it should be discussed here in the GARM but...look at the first page, nothing but politics.

    We all know where he’s going with this. This is just another sad attempt to try and vilify the black man.

    Trash thread. Harden was simply trying to help out Morey. He meant he loves China fans not China. There is a reason Harden stays out of the political discourse.
