Today, the Milwaukee Bucks boycotted their Game 5 playoff game against the Orlando Magic by not showing up. This protest is in response to the shooting of Jacob Blake, another unarmed black man shot by the police, in the Bucks’ home state, Wisconsin.
Huge respect to the Milwaukee Bucks for standing up for what they believe in. Their actions lead to a boycott of the rest of the playoff games today and has sparked the conversation on police brutality once again.
This is going to have huge implications within the NBA and North American sports but hopefully this can finally lead to real change.
