How NBA players responded to George Freud’s murder
The murder of George Floyd is reminiscent of the systematic racism in our society.
Not only did it lead to a renewed call for change, it also triggered riots in the streets around Minneapolis and the United States.
Floyd’s death is a tragedy, especially for many NBA players, most of them African American.
This is what they have to say in recent days:
I will protest peacefully tomorrow

Three people were arrested by mistake today. This is a peaceful protest!

If you let your colleague do this to another person, but you do n’t want to stop him or chat with him, then you are as grumpy as he is. For most good policemen, they take great risks every day to work in the right way, which makes them frustrated. https://t.co/HncJfZcVeD

It just makes me more angry and there is no excuse for it. It’s just that PUNK ASS COPS will do PUNK ASS things. No matter what happened before him, he is contained, there is no reason to squeeze his life out of the world. Is murder https://t.co/HpLiJjEYyyg

It is heartbreaking that bystanders cannot disband officers and soldiers because we know how this will happen. The only person helping here is another officer standing there, letting this happen. shame! ! ! ! https://t.co/ljDSBdH1SB

I’m scared of myself and my black children, some of them are crazy people and police … I hope God doesn’t want them to enter something, the police are coming and may kill them
