  • ESPN has the internal memo sent out to justify why, with @pstorre reporting that Knicks staffers have been upset enough they held a meeting behind management’s back. The irony here is that issuing a milquetoast statement is literally the least a company can do right now… And the NBA’s most valuable franchise decided not to do even that.

And it matters to hear from athletes, some of whom are the most visible young black men & women in America. The NBA & WNBA have been making sure that happens.

We need people of different races to step up with us, to step in front of us, beside us and support us to speak up.” - @malcolmbrogdon with eloquence and honesty after participating in peaceful protests this weekend.
