MARK CUBAN TALKS ‘WHITE PRIVILEGE’ & SYSTEMIC RACISM AT MAVERICKS’ ‘COURAGEOUS CONVERSATION’ EVENT
Wednesday, Jun 10, 2020

Mark Cuban wants his fellow white counterparts to stop being so defensive when it comes to their “privilege.” In a PSA to the white community, the Dallas Mavericks owner said getting defensive about “white privilege” doesn’t “move us forward” when it comes to progression in racial relations. Cuban, who has been very vocal about George Floyd’s death and attended a prayer vigil in Dallas, urges people to have the “difficult” conversations about inequality and systemic racism in this country, even when it’s “not something we’re comfortable with,” Mark said at the Maverick’s Courageous Conversation event.

“The reality is, to be brutally honest, when people talk about white privilege, we get defensive. We all have this mechanism that I call manufactured equivalency to try to protect ourselves. We’ll say, ‘I have a lot of black friends.’ We’ll say, ‘I grew up in a mixed community, so I’m not like that. I can’t possibly be someone who takes advantage of white privilege,’ and manufacture this equivalency,” Cuban said. Adding that “It’s incumbent on us to stop doing that, because that doesn’t move us forward when we do that. That’s part of having a courageous conversation.”

 

“I need all of us to really open up and talk to each other. Even when it’s difficult.” – @mcuban #MFFL pic.twitter.com/pz1HYaniYM
