Jaylen Brown Wants People To ‘Keep Same Energy’ Under Joe Biden With Social Justice (VIDEO)
Jaylen Brown does not want people to take their foot off the gas and let up just because Donald Trump is no longer the President right now.
The Boston Celtics star is begging people to “keep the same energy.”
“I don’t want to be pessimistic, but I think now having a new face [in the White House], people are taking their foot off the gas, thinking that everything is okay now,” Brown said Thursday.
“I would like to challenge that. We still have a lot of work to do, regardless if Biden is in office or not.”
Brown shared that he wants the system to change, regardless of who is living in the White House. Brown added, “Just because we have a new President doesn’t mean the system doesn’t need to be changed.”
The 24-year-old star — 3rd overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft — has been one of the more outspoken NBA players when it comes to the fight for social justice.
“My dilemma was never with any presidencies or selections of different faces. It’s more about the system, I think, that needs to be changed.”
He continued, “I know there was a lot of stress attached to our former president, potentially. But, I definitely want to keep the same energy up in terms of having the awareness and pushing forward for change.”
“We gotta keep the same energy up. People still gotta care. People still need to make phone calls, you know, etc. So, I’m looking forward to continuing to fight for change.”
