  • WINTER PARK, Fla. — Sitting before the 7-foot-2 giant that still draws crowds nearly three decades after ending his storied athletic career was a melting pot of people young and old, black and white, Christian, Muslim and everything in between.
  • Abdul-Jabbar spoke for an hour about what led him to become vocal about race, class and culture throughout his career and how sports helped shape those views.
  • During the racial tumult of the 1960s, the angst and racial unrest gave a young Abdul-Jabbar little hope that anyone cared about black people other than black people.
  • Abdul-Jabbar has been outspoken on issues of race, religion and culture for decades, so criticism that athletes should stick to sports and not politics does not sit well with him.
  • Too many young black kids get shot for no good reason, he said, speaking to police brutality and the violence that plagues many urban, minority communities.
