More and more NBA players are joining the fight against racial discrimination in Black Lives Matter protests around the United States, after the killing of George Floyd. The latest example was Milwaukee Bucks superstar and reigning MVP of the league, Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Antetokounmpo attended a marching protest in Milwaukee and talked to the fellow protesters for about 30 minutes, as reported from Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Giannis talked on justice and how he wants his son Charles ‘not to be scared to walk in the streets’, when he grows up.
“This is our city, man. We got to come out here and support. We want change, we want justice, and that’s why we’re out here,” Antetokounmpo said. “That’s what we’re going to do today. That’s why I’m going to march with you.
I want my kid to grow up here in Milwaukee, and not to be scared to walk in the streets. I don’t want my kid to have hate in his heart,” the Bucks superstar said, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Antetokounmpo was joined by Bucks teammates Sterling Brown, Donte DiVincenzo, Brook Lopez, two-way player Frank Mason II and Thanasis Antetokounmpo, Giannis’ brother.
