Jazz's Clarkson Slams Racist Attack on Food Truck in Utah

Jordan Clarkson of the Utah Jazz is a man of the people and he's not going to let racism in Utah slide. Recently there was a Filipino food truck that was vandalized with racial slurs and Clarkson sounded off on the matter.

If you want me to be real honest, my first reaction was, 'This is bullshit!. was just like, 'We can't be f------ doing this.' Those were the exact words that came out of my mouth to my boys, my family, and everybody that was around me. So, they were like, 'Let's do something (about it). "I didn't even want this to really get out. My team was like, 'Do you want to go public with this or not?' And I was kind of like, 'No,' in the sense of I want to do this out of straight love and support. But for them, they came to me and said you got to show the people that you are there for them and let them know that you are supporting them, and that is what I am doing. I am here to support, show love, and just try to make a change

Clarkson has Filipino roots via his mother and he ended up paying to have the truck restored and is giving the owners some money to financially support their business for growth. The team also invited the family and all their employees to attend the team's Game 2 against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Kudos to Clarkson and the Jazz for helping change the world.
