Stephen Jackson Tells Chicago Youth: Y’all Not Opps, Your Grandparents Were Friends

Former NBA Player Stephen Jackson reminds Chicago youth that the system is the “opps”, not the community.

Former NBA Player Stephen Jackson reacts to the violence in Chicago, the use of the word “opps”, and how many of the young people in Chicago have grandparents that were good friends, not enemies. He reminds the youth that many of their grandparents use to look out for each other, borrow things from each other, cook for each other, and protect each other. Jackson emphasizes the system is the “opps”, and we should work together against the real opposition rather than each other.
