NBA players show their love of life and equality are greater than their love for a game

SALT LAKE CITY — I rarely experience writer’s block.

But here I am sitting in front of my laptop with an assignment to write a column about what’s going on with the NBA players’ protest in the aftermath of Jacob Blake being shot by an officer in Wisconsin, and I’m at a loss for words.

Let me clarify that. I was assigned to write about Game 6 between the Utah Jazz and the Denver Nuggets, but that game has been postponed. And it reportedly just about got canceled.

I’m a white, conservative-leaning member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who’s never personally experienced racism, so part of me feels like it’s better if I just stop right here and write no more.
