The NFL and NFLPA address Jacob Blake shooting

 

With social unrest in the United States, the National Football League released a statement in support of the Black community in the wake of Jacob Blake’s shooting in Kenosha, WI by the Kenosha Police Department.

“The NFL community is united more than ever to support one another in these challenging times. We share anger and frustration, most recently as a result of the shooting of Jacob Blake.

While our passions continue to run high, we are proud that our players and clubs, League and Union, are taking time to have the difficult conversations about these issues that affect the Black community and other communities of color in America.  We are especially encouraged that these conversations are about how we can come together to make the necessary and long overdue changes in our country.

We will continue to not only use our collective platform to call out racism and injustice whenever and wherever it occurs in our country, but also fight together to eradicate it.”

Double G Sports will continue to keep it’s readers engaged on all social justice issues in sports.
