( CNN) I do not consider myself to be an avid sports fan, but last-place drop-off, an NBA coach got my attention with mentions he made “thats been” shared on Twitter. It was Gregg “Pop” Popovich, the seemingly surly but universally beloved instruct of the San Antonio Spurs talking about race, solely white liberty. “We still have no evidence of what being born lily-white entails, ” he replied.

I recall reputing how uncommon it was to hear a white person like me own that liberty and speak candidly and publicly about ethnic transgression.

On April 12, I was in a Starbucks in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood of Philadelphia and watched as two young black workers, Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson, were taken away in handcuffs for doing what is completely normal for me — sitting in a coffee shop waiting for a acquaintance, without having told anything.

Witness: This doesn’t happens to white people

Why is Starbucks teaching exclusively U.S. workers on bias?
