Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Exclusive: NBA China critic Enes Kanter Freedom starts civil rights foundation”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Enes Kanter Freedom, the NBA’s resident China critic, says he will soon launch a foundation that will fight for civil rights in countries like China and Turkey.

The 11-year journeyman center says the Enes Kanter Freedom Foundation will occupy him full-time, now that he’s given up on playing in the NBA again. He is set to launch the nonprofit Thursday at a press conference on Capitol Hill, where he has enjoyed vocal support from conservatives.

“A lot of people like to ask me if I’m a Republican or a Democrat, but I don’t want to take a side,” Freedom, 30, told The Washington Times. “I’m for truth and justice. I have to speak up for what’s right even if it means sacrificing everything I have.”

He confirmed that no teams have approached him since the Houston Rockets waived his contract after acquiring him from the Boston Celtics in February.

His frequent, outspoken criticisms of the league’s close business ties to China and of the communist regime’s human rights violations have won him the praise of conservatives, as well as appearances on Fox News and a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
