Players across the WNBA express solidarity after nationwide protests in the wake of the murder of George Floyd.
People of color have tried everything under the sun to be seen as equal in this world. Literally everything. I don’t condone any violence…but truly, what else is there to do when you feel like no one is listening?

I haven’t had the right words to describe how I have been feeling. But this man says it’s right. I want to feel safe to walk in a white neighborhood anywhere in the world. I’m thinking of the men in my family, my friends, and any black human being. #BLM https://t.co/6QffaN5PCA

I’ve been trying to put some thoughts into words. It’s hard to reconcile the pride I feel playing for Team USA with the shame I feel over the systemic racism that has contributed to the privileges I have – and the oppression of Black people in America.

#JusticeforFloyd means ensuring these four fired officers never become officers ever again. @HennepinAtty must charge them with murder. @MayorFrey must block their pensions and ban them from becoming cops again. Txt 'FLOYD' to 55156.

i guess black people fighting against injustice are more dangerous than a virus that doesn’t see age, race, or social status.

Even when they kill us, they will find a way to blame us for our own deaths.
I’m tired. #BlackLivesMatter

We’re all hurting right now. Feeling dejected, enraged, lost for words, and even numb. That’s only some of what I’m feeling. But we must attack this week with positive and powerful intentions that we WILL overcome. We WILL rise. And we WILL see change begin to manifest before us.

My Mom was living in Detroit during the riots in the summer of 1967. Fast forward to 2020, I’m living in Atlanta during the riots. Until the underlying problem is fixed, History will always repeat itself. #CivilUnrest

Throughout all the pain and suffering and obstacles, we still here. Still prospering. Still making history. While all the odds are stacked against us. Forever will be proud to be black 🙏🏾

How do we answer to our children when we don’t have the answers ourselves? This has to change with conversation and action from those directly affected and not and everyone that understands the definition of EQUALITY. #GeorgeFloyd

…racial injustice within this country. My parents are black AND police officers. Off-Duty though I do worry about my dad. He’s a 6’6 dark skin black guy, no different looking than how people would physically describe #GeorgeFloyd People don’t know he’s an officer…
— Brianna Turner (@_Breezy_Briii) May 31, 2020
…So this is why I speak out, bc I care. Because I want better. Because I’m tired the same scenarios replaying in this country. I don’t want for police brutality to feel normal. I don’t want racial injustice to be America’s tag line. Im tired of all of it & I hope you are too.

I’m so glad I went and played for a BLACK WOMAN. She knew and understood what & where I came from. CVS NEVER BACKED DOWN, instilled PRIDE in me & ALWAYS spoke her mind PERIOD. Thank you for showing me the way. @cvivianstringer 🤞🏾❤️
