Yes, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's speech at the DNC was impressive. He introduced himself as Michael Jordan, saying that Trump wouldn't be able to tell the difference anyway. This zinger called out the Republican nominee on his racism and xenophobia, implying that Trump believes all African-Americans look the same and all Muslims are evil. While the joke may be what people remember most, the rest of his speech was also impressive as he spoke about a diverse America and the stakes for all Americans in the upcoming election.
The Democratic National Convention had many impressive "headliner" speeches, from Joe Biden to President Obama. Another such "headliner" was former basketball player (and small-time movie star) Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Abdul-Jabbar's speech was incredibly impressive: his stirring words called on America to re-examine itself in the face of such a contentious election season.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar had a great deal of interesting things to say to the general public and to the attendees of the convention. His thoughts on democracy, the future of this country, and who the next president should be were very interesting. His words will be interesting to revisit in the future.
The speech given by Kareem was very impressive and well received by the DNC crowd. He gave an important true perspective on the Muslim rights in America. It was a reminder to look at the ways that discrimination continue in our country and to keep fighting against the policies that may take away those basic rights.
