There was so much pressure that was put upon me to condemn Kyrie Irving based on his press conference,” Owens said Monday. “When I watched this press conference, I felt Kyrie’s pain.”
Owens has been an outspoken critic of things that she views as atrocities committed against the general welfare or advancement of the Black community.
“As a Black person, people don’t often think about how bizarre it is that we don’t know where we come from,” she said. “If you ask the majority of white people, they’ll say oh my family is from Scotland, my husband’s family goes back so many generations, when you talk to most people, they have a cultural understanding of their history.”
