Spurs’ Gregg Popovich calls book ban ‘intellectual and moral and criminal corruption’
CHICAGO — Spurs coach Gregg Popovich on Monday lambasted Texas parents pushing for the removal of books from public libraries and state schools.
“Just thinking about banning books seems to me to be intellectually and morally corrupt and criminal, and you wonder why a parent would take that stance?” said Popovitch. “Do you really want to raise your child in ignorance? Are you purposely raising your child in ignorance so that he doesn’t understand history and facts? You don’t think he has the capacity to understand this in a analytical and decide what he wants to do.
