Alex Caruso is going to grind in and out of the court, as he said in a recent interview with The Undefeated.

The Los Angeles Lakers guard talked about the reality of the black communities face and how he can help his teammates express their objection against social injustice and racial discrimination.

“This is something that Black people can’t do on their own,” Caruso said. “This isn’t something where they can wake up and say, ‘You know what? I’m just grinding, being an activist and talking to so many people and it’s going to get done.’”

Caruso has been wearing unique messages on the back of his jersey such as “black lives matter”, while several players protested against police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem.
