The ESPY’s were powerful and monumental last night. Four of the NBA’s biggest stars, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Dwayne Wade and LeBron James used the opening moments to call for social change. The NBA players issued a call to action to stop racial profiling and police violence and stress that “enough is enough.”
“The shoot-to-kill mentality has to stop. Not seeing the value in black or brown bodies has to stop. But also retaliation has to stop.
The powerful words sparked discussion on social media.
