J.R. Smith reacts to Donald Trump’s election victory
The battlefield known as America is now clear of the election fires, and all that remain are dust and smoke in the form of the people’s initial reactions.
For J.R. Smith, a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump’s presidential election victory ushers in a wave of questions, fear, and uncertainty for those who belong to the sectors of society that have been on the receiving end of Trump’s controversial remarks.
The Cleveland Cavaliers sharpshooter took to Instagram in venting out his post-election sentiments.
How do you explain to this face what happen? You can be a educated women in your field an not get the job because your a women or cause your black? How do you say "go try your best" even though it won't be good enough. How do I even feel confident sending her on play dates knowing the kids family voted for the racist, sexist person an I don't know how they will treat her when she's gone. How? Seriously How? I understand let go and let God! But damn!
Smith is only one of many NBA players who have shared their initial reactions, mostly surprise, on social media, and he won’t be the last.
