The 49ers took a very visible step to acknowledge the racial inequality in the United States.
The team decided to fly a “Black Lives Matter” flag over Levi’s Stadium. It can be seen below next to the United States and state of California flag.
Last month 49ers CEO Jed York spoke out after the death of George Floyd:
“People throughout our country are hurting,” York said then. “Emotions are raw, and rightfully so. Heinous acts have been committed in recent weeks. Before we are able to realize impactful change, we must first have the courage and compassion as human beings to come together and acknowledge the problem: black men, women, children and other oppressed minorities continue to be systemically discriminated against.”
It looks like they turned their words into action.
