28 Mar Why We Love the NBA
Over the weekend we heard of another unarmed man being shot and killed by police in Sacramento. Stephon Clark was in his grandparents backyard when he was shot 20 times with just a cellphone in his hands.
I want to give a shoutout to the NBA and the Sacramento Kings for how they handled the situation. The Kings owner spoke to the fans at the stadium and said, “We stand here all white, black and brown and we are all united…we are all one and we have to work together.” That was followed by a PSA discussing the accountability players have to voice their opinions.
My wish is for us to take action and follow in the footsteps of the NBA and activists around the country. Whether that’s by attending March for Our Lives or voting, we should work to ensure that children don’t go without fathers like in the case of Stephon Clark.
Peace and Love,
Andrew of We Take Note for The Wishwall
