I want to give a shout out to the Key 5 and PGC leadership teams. I just read the email sent out by PGC and have been following all the coaches on Twitter. I think it is great to see them use their platform to teach understanding. I truly believe PGC, Key 5 and all basketball coaches have a huge chance to help the youth of America, and the world, better understand the mistakes made in the past. I am not posting this for any political reason, I just think what they are doing is great and see the opportunity all basketball coaches have to make a difference. I am posting my reply to them just because the email sparked something in me to write them back. I hope everyone is safe, well and reaching out to their loved ones during these uncertain days.
Beautifully said and thank you for putting something out. Between this and the info/thoughts that the PGC leadership has expressed on twitter you are showing why you are a top notch organization with a different agenda than just making money. The PGC camp had a big effect on me in 1995 when I attended the camp with Dick. That is why I sought you out, online, when my daughter started playing basketball. Your camps touch so many kids, at an impressionable age, and you can really be a game changer in this fight for understanding and equality. As a white man I will never fully understand the atrocities that have been done to people of color. I will try though and try to show my children what is wrong in this world. Thank you again for putting this info out there and keep up the good work. I really believe your organization, through basketball, will show the nations youth what true north really is.
