Pro Athletes Lead Historic Strike For Racial Justice

Teams from four major American sports leagues boycotted games Wednesday night to protest the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha.

It’s become bigger than a mere sports story. When the Milwaukee Bucks decided not to take the court last night, they were sending a statement on the police shooting of Jacob Blake in nearby Kenosha, Wis., and the Black Lives Matter movement as a whole. Other teams quickly followed suit, and NBA, MLB, WNBA and MLS games were postponed in solidarity.
