Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr expressed optimism Tuesday that "the younger generation" can lead the United States into a better future in a pair of tweets that praised their diversity and tolerance:
"The younger generation coming up is more diverse, more tolerant, & more informed than any generation before them. They are smart, energized, connected and ready to build a country and society where EVERYONE feels safe and protected by the institutions of our democracy. They have learned to work together to promote a better future, even when such a possibility seems bleak. By actively acknowledging & protesting the racism that has long defined our nation's history, the younger generation is providing the hope that we all need. Listen to them."
This past week has been no exception:
Kerr worked as a broadcaster and was the general manager of the Phoenix Suns before joining the Warriors as their head coach in 2014. He's led Golden State to five Western Conference titles and three NBA Finals wins.
