Bowser, Friday, and Golden State Warriors: D.C. Mayor Welcomes Golden State Warriors "If Anyone Ever Tells You That You Cannot Come to D.C., Tell Them Mayor Bowser Invited You" @balleralert D.C.

Although he didnโ€™t want to go for his own personal beliefs, the final decision would be left up to the team and organization. However, before the team was able to decide for themselves, Trump took offense to Curryโ€™s statement and withdrew the invitation, prompting a Twitter storm of backlash. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € In turn, the Warriors released a statement, saying they would use their trip to D.C. to embrace their team values of equality and inclusion. Shortly after the teamโ€™s announcement, another elected official in D.C. welcomed the team to the nationโ€™s capital. D.C. Mayor MurielBowser shared a statement on social media welcoming the team to practice their First Amendment rights and-or lose to their beloved Washington Wizards during Warriorsโ€™ visit in February. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ€œWe are Washington, D.C.

While youโ€™re here, Warriors, we are happy to identify ways for you to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion โ€“ what we call DC values. And if anyone ever tells you that you cannot come to DC, tell them Muriel Bowser invited you.โ€

Today, racism is so blatant, especially as itโ€™s spewed directly from the White House, that it needs to be discussed with our children to prevent the worst case scenario. They need to have a clear understanding that there are some ignorant people in this world that will not respect them because of the color of their skin. They must understand that people will hate them and target them because of a little extra melanin. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Many of us raise our children to love and respect others, but then you have some people that could care less how you or your children feel. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Racism is not an inherited trait. It is a learned behavior that has been pushed onto children at a young age. Children donโ€™t just start hating other races, they are taught to be hateful. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € It doesnโ€™t make it any easier when you have a clown in office who takes every opportunity to put down other races and nationalities. We have to instill in our children that they are beautiful, they are smart , and most of all important. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Donโ€™t let another day pass you by without having the conversation about racism with your children. They are never too young. Remember parents, you are your childโ€™s first teacher.
