Stephen Curry says we should fight all forms of racism including subtle racism.

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry joined basketball Hall of Famer Charles Barkley, former Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins and baseball Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith in a discussion about topics such as systemic racism, police reform and the nationwide protests during Race and Sports in America: Conversations on NBC Sports Network on Monday.

Curry said it is critical to fight systemic racism but also the "subtle racism and prejudice that starts to add on itself," such as thinking successful Black people are an anomaly and describing someone as "articulate" and "well-spoken" in prejudicial ways.

He continued, saying, "shifting perspectives and holding everybody accountable, whether it's a private conversation, whether it's a tweet, whether it's a video, whatever it is ... to see everybody as equal" is key.

The six-time All-Star also stressed how important voting is and will continue to be in the future, not just at the national level but at the local level where "real change happens."
