BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – NBA players recently boycotted playoff games in order to protest racial injustice.
MLB followed suit by sitting out some games in protest.
Now, former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow has given his thoughts on the recent protests:
How can you hear the pain Black people are going through and dismiss it as nothing. How can you hear the pain and respond with anything other than “I stand with you.”— Joey Burrow (@JoeyB) August 27, 2020
This is not the first time that Burrow has given his opinion on issues of racial injustice.
In May, Burrow issued a statement after the death of George Floyd.
