Protests Against Racism
Racial discrimination has been existing in the United States since time immemorial. People are mistreated on the basis of their skin color. Although people raised their voices against this, but it never became that impactful.
But this time it is a bit different. After the merciless killing of George Floyd under police custody, it resulted in the initiation of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement. And it spread across many nations.
Thus many people including Hollywood starts and Sports persons are supporting this movement against racism. And this time LeBron James and his fellow players have also shown their support for the movement by going on a strike that lead to the postponement of the NBA playoff.
Therefore it is an example of how this struggle against racism is becoming more and more influential as it is getting support from people all across the world.
