  Bucks' Brogdon: White supremacy in America is 'domestic terrorism' © Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports / Reuters Having spent five full years living in Charlottesville, Va. while starring for the Virginia Cavaliers, Milwaukee Bucks guard and reigning Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon is well positioned to weigh in on the events that transpired in the small college town over the previous week.

"To see this happen in a place that I call home is sort of jarring for me," Brogdon told Sports Illustrated. "But if I were to be honest, the level of hate and blatant racism that still dominates the minds of so many Americans today - it's not shocking to me. I think at the end of the day, you have to call it what it is: I think it is white supremacy and I think it's domestic terrorism."

Brogdon cited LeBron James' leadership among his fellow athletes in decrying bigotry in the wake of white supremacist rallies which took place in Charlottesville last weekend. James recently denounced the words (and perceived inaction) of President Donald Trump, saying the Commander-in-Chief has made hate "fashionable again."

"I think he's been articulate in the way he's spoken, and he's been truthful," Brogdon said of the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar. "I don't think he's tried to shy away from being truthful, and making sure that people hear his voice. I think he's done an awesome job."

As to whether Brogdon would consider protesting the national anthem, a controversial demonstration closely associated with free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick and now Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch of the National Football League, the 24-year-old was non-committal.

“Nothing changes”: Republicans in Congress will stick with Trump, even after Charlottesville

  “Nothing changes”: Republicans in Congress will stick with Trump, even after Charlottesville After two days of failing to denounce white supremacy following a violent rally in Charlottesville on Saturday, President Trump answered outraged calls from his own party: He condemned racist hate groups by name. Those comments, read from prepared text on Monday in the White House, will almost certainly be sufficient to avoid any real damage to Trump’s legislative proposals. And as far as insiders on Capitol Hill can see, Trump’s amended comments seem to be enough for Republican lawmakers to move forward as if this were any other White House dust-up — and to continue pushing for policy goals they share with the president. “It seems like what Congress is focused on is what Congress has always been focused on,” a conservative House aide said, speaking on condition of anonymity: moving the legislative agenda on health care and tax reform that GOP members have campaigned on for years. On Saturday, a Nazi sympathizer at a white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Virginia — whose mother identified as a Trump supporter — rammed his car into a crowd of anti-racism counterprotesters, killing one and injuring more than a dozen. In the immediate aftermath, Trump refused to condemn white supremacy specifically, prompting angry calls from Republican lawmakers. “Mr. President — we must call evil by its name. These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism,” Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) tweeted. Sen.

"I'm not sure," Brogdon said. "I think everyone has different methods in which they're going to protest."

What Brogdon is sure about is that athletes must continue to have a voice, and not succumb to the notion they should just "stick to sports."

"I think it's extremely offensive. I think it puts us in a bubble. It simply implies that because we're athletes we don't have a say or opinion, or that we don't have the educational background to comment on things outside of sports. I just think it's absurd," he said.
