Aside from the coronavirus pandemic, the United States got reminded in a terrible way that nothing has truly changed with race relations after a video surfaced showing 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery being chased down and shot by a Caucasian father and son in Georgia.
Once the graphic video hit social media, only then did Gregory and Travis McMichael get arrested and charged with murder and aggravated assault.
New Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, Golden State warriors head coach Steve Kerr are among several athletes joining The Players Coalition in penning a letter to Attorney General William Barr demanding a federal investigation into the incident.
Players such as Julian Edelman, Stephon Gilmore, Malcolm Jenkins and Cam Jordan are on this letter.
Mega athletes demanding change is what we need.
