The Sports World has Gone on Strike? – NBA, NFL, NHL, NLB
There have been protests over police brutality for months on the streets, starting in the USA and going around the world.
But the shootings and brutality haven’t stopped.
Yesterday I wrote about the latest black man to be shot. As of now, he lays in a hospital bed, with a severed spinal chord. Paralyzed for the rest of his life. And they have a police guard and cuffs on him. I don’t know how you justify that to me, let alone his three kids who are watching it all.
Which may be why the sports world is embracing this case. Because protesting in the streets has achieved nothing, but placing them at further risk.
So what will be the response to this? Games and practices lost? Or have the players said ‘enough!’. Because they’ve been asked to show solidarity with you and play on when they are placing their lives and their families’ lives at risk to do so.
Maybe now it’s your turn?
