Paul said he has talked to numerous players, including some who are not Black, who support the jersey idea that allows players to stand for racial injustice.
We’re just trying to continue to shed light on the different social justice issues that guys around our league continue to talk about day in and day out,” Paul told The Undefeated. “People are saying that social justice will be off of everybody’s mind in Orlando. With these jerseys, it doesn’t go away.”
There have been NBA players who were involved in nationwide protests, vocal on social media and active in the aftermath of Floyd’s death on May 25 in Minneapolis and Taylor’s death on March 13 in Louisville, Kentucky, at the hands of White racist police.
If all goes as plan, players would raise awareness with their jerseys for causes or charities not connected to social injustice, police brutality or other racial issues.
Paul,who advocating for that indicated that he doesn’t know what to put on the back of his jersey. Great way to start and continue a dialogue that is a must.
