A whole group of oppressed human beings is crying out to you in their pain, in their distress, “We can’t breathe!”
“So many of you are asking: What can I do? There is a sense of helplessness, but that must not paralyze us. Your voice matters, especially when you are a leader or influential figure, and especially if you are white. Leaders have to be bold enough to state the obvious and call out racism.
“The conversation can no longer be avoided because it is hard. We have to have it. Now.”
(President, Toronto Raptors)
