DeSean Jackson Plans on Wearing Custom Cleats Protesting Police Killings (PIC)
Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson has a plan up his sleeve that will indeed get him both fined and heavily criticized throughout the country. And he couldn’t care less.
According to TMZ, Jackson got in touch with artist Marcus Rivero, a.k.a. SolesBySir, to design some custom cleats that have yellow caution tape on them to protest the senseless killings of African Americans at the hands of the police.
“We reached out to Jackson for a comment … and were told “I’ve seen enough yellow caution tape and it’s time for a stand and a change in our community and society.”
“Senseless killings have been ongoing for awhile and police brutality in our black community … and as a young black leader with a stage and platform I’m starting awareness to help prevent these killings, and hopefully get justice to these cops who have taken lives of innocent human beings.”
Jackson says he doesn’t just want justice, but also “a change with the decision making on these cop killings.”
“I am also coming up with a master plan to start a movement” with the intention of making a real impact.
We’re told Jackson plans to wear the cleats during pregame warmups tomorrow … and possibly during the game.”
