Black Athletes Protest Racism in Wake of George Floyd’s Death: Mike Tyson Takes a Knee, Steph Curry Joins Anti-Trump Chant at March, NHL Star Evander Kane Launches Diversity Initiative, and NASCAR’s Bubba Wallace Wears ‘I Can’t Breathe’ Shirt During National Anthem


Stephen Curry (left) marched alongside protestors in Oakland, Mike Tyson took a knee (inset), San Jose Sharks star Evander Kane launched a diversity initiative, and NASCAR’s Bubba Wallace stood for the national anthem in a shirt reading ‘I Can’t Breathe’ (right) as African-American athletes continue to find ways to fight racism in the wake of George Floyd’s killing this week. Tyson posted a picture of himself kneeling on social media Monday after President Donald Trump reiterated his disapproval of athletes protesting racism by refusing to stand for the national anthem. Tyson and Trump have known each other since the 1980s, when the former boxed at the latter’s Atlantic City casinos. Curry, meanwhile, was seen chanting ‘Donald Trump has got to go’ with protestors in Oakland on Sunday while marching alongside his wife, Ayesha, and their seven-year-old daughter Riley. ‘The kids are watching, listening and learning,’ Ayesha Curry wrote on Twitter. ‘What will you have them retain? Let’s get it right for them so they don’t have to for their children.’ Curry’s Warriors teammate Klay Thompson was seen protesting in Oakland days earlier. Curry and Trump previously quarreled through the media when the All-Star guard refused to commit to the the customary White House visit after the Warriors won the NBA title in 2017.
