Coming Together to Solve a Problem

Coming Together to Solve a Problem

On August 23rd, it was a very tragic day for sports and all around the US. Tons of athletes came together for racial injustice and took a stand against it. There were games all across the country being postponed. Milwaukee was only an hour away from Kenosha where Jacob Blake was brutally shot seven times in the back. The Milwaukee Bucks took a stand and chose not to take the floor against the Orland Magic and they joined the Bucks. 

After the Wisconsin local team decided not to play, the NBA announced that they’d postpone three of the game five playoff games. The Milwaukee Bucks vs. Orlando Magic, Houston Rockets vs. the Oklahoma City Thunder, and also the Los Angeles Lakers vs. the Portland Trailblazers.

In just a few hours, three WNBA, three MLS soccer games, and three MLB games were canceled as the athletes acted in solidarity with all of the Bucks’ players. Truly everybody came together to support and demanded justice for Jacob Blake.
