Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo and some of his teammates joined a protest organized by local activist Frank Nitty in Milwaukee on Saturday.
Giannis even took time to address those around him at the protest by proclaiming via a megaphone why he and his teammates decided to take part in the protest.
“I want the city of Milwaukee to know I’m here,” Antetokounmpo said.
“We want change, we want justice, and that’s why we’re out here, that’s what we’re going to do today. That’s why I’m going to march with you guys, ok? I want my kid to grow up here in Milwaukee, and not to be scared to walk in the streets. I don’t want my kid to have hate in his heart.”
It was a great sign of unity by the community and the Bucks players each being seen wearing a gray “I can’t breathe” T-shirt and each was equipped with gloves and masks to help protect from the coronavirus pandemic
Giannis was joined by several of his teammates Sterling Brown, Donte DiVincenzo, Brook Lopez, Frank Mason, and Thanasis Antetokounmpo.
