Former NBA player and George Floyd’s close friend, Stephen Jackson Sr, is continuing to demand justice for the black community by making a bold statement about Equality and justice on his official Instagram account.
Following George Floyd was brutally murdered by Minneapolis police officers, the Black Lives Matter movement was reborn, and protests spread throughout the country. Jackson was also one of the leaders of the protests in Minneapolis, and the demand for Equality and justice has continued since Floyd’s death.
Jackson has updated his Instagram feed and penned down a letter about black people’s future. In his statement, he said that the world and his life changed since Floyd was murdered. As a result of these protests, he said he understood that he was fighting for justice and Equality. He wrote:
“Since the day Twin was murdered, the world changed. My life changed. His family’s life changed. From my first press conference till now, I finally understand why we are still fighting for Equality and Justice. It’s hard because of the system and the racist that built it/behind it and were also fighting the ‘Comfortable Blacks.’
The 42-year-old former basketball player mentioned that there is a large majority who doesn’t care about Equality and black people’s future. He continued:
“It may seem hopeless to some. It’s also a big majority that doesn’t care or hope we never see Equality. The God I serve has worked many miracles in my life. I see the day of Equality and the true 1 Nation Under God. S 0 “11 I’m all in. Found my purpose. Love for all who have a love for all. Simple as that.”
