He's being smart about it at least.

It's what BLM should be doing. instead of rioting looting, shooting cops, getting theirs.

Without a doubt JLin is as brainwashed as most Asian Americans who grew up in the states, although his recent sticking up for our people has given me at least some hope.

In this case, I think it's a combination of Asians4blacklives and saying the right thing in a league where 75% of its players are black...

Well, I won't go THAT FAR to say Jeremy had been brainwashed. What he said and done so far on this subject matter were just being POLITICALLY CORRECT as well as CONSISTENT with his RELIGION !!! I believe to him NOT ONLY Black Lives Matter but ALL Lives Matter. On his Twitter/Facebook/Instagram/Weibo, he often sent out words of condolence/sympathy to fans in China, Taiwan, and ROTW in cases of droughts, floods, earthquakes, natural disasters or major tragic happenings.

Lin is more mature and experienced with the media. Public image really matters in the NBA, we're talking hundreds of millions of dollars worth of contracts at the most elite level. These next 3 years are Lin's PEAK years, he is at his prime.

Don't be like Lance Stephenson.
