There are competing versions of the event and it’s still unclear what happened. But over the weekend, the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department told the Associated Press it was recommending that Ujiri be charged for allegedly shoving a sheriff’s deputy while trying to get on the court to celebrate the win with the team on Thursday.
The incident has triggered an intense reaction from fans, and many see this as a clear example of the way black men are mistreated by police.
On this episode of Wait, There’s More, we’re talking about Masai Ujiri and why so many people are calling what happened to him an incidence of racial profiling. Host Tamara Khandaker speaks with Greg Weiner, a season ticket holder who saw the incident go down, and with Toronto-based human rights lawyer Anthony Morgan.
