Stephen Curry enters the marketplace of ideas

Stephen, would you like to share with the group?
I'd never heard of Stephen Curry until he decided to enter the marketplace of ideas. He's apparently a pretty good basketball player who announced that he didn't want to to visit the White House. He has his reasons:
"By acting and not going, hopefully that will inspire some change when it comes to what we tolerate in this country and what is accepted and what we turn a blind eye to. It's not just the act of not going. There are things you have to do on the back end to actually push that message into motion."
So The Donald disinvited him for disrespecting the White House, even though Curry is a graduate of the Al Sharpton School of Elocution. The team announced that it was going to Washington anyway, but ...
“In lieu of a visit to the White House, we have decided that we’ll constructively use our trip to the nation’s capital in February to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion — the values that we embrace as an organization.”
Michael Smith commented on Facebook:
This from a sports league that is one of the least equal (it is a meritocracy based on a particular skill set), the least diverse (roughly 75% black players) and the least inclusive (if you are a woman or are disabled, you can't play in the NBA). Nothing the NBA actually is is represented by "equality, diversity and inclusion." The Golden State Social Justice Warriors may well "celebrate" those "values," but they don't live them. The lack of self-awareness of the progressive left is stunning. 
Al Sharpton, call your office.

I wonder if they are taking the spouses and children with them to Washington. I wonder if they would have like to see inside the Oval Office?

Don't worry about Stephen Curry's family. They are comfortable in their $3.2 million, two-story Mediterranean estate. Apparently he buys a new house every year. Stephen pays the mortgages from his five-year, $201 million salary.
