I try to remind myself of this every day:

I’m still in this conversation from the privileged perspective of opting in to it. Which of course means that on the flip side, I could just as easily opt out of it. Every day, I’m given that choice — I’m granted that privilege — based on the color of my skin.

Wow, what a compelling statement! Thanks for sharing, that really spoke to me.

And let me add, the Players' Tribune has become an extraordinary website. It gives us as fans a unique opportunity to listen to the players we watch play. And as Korver himself explains so eloquently, listening needs to happen.
