The Internet Was Incredibly Moved By NBA Players' Speech About Racial Injustice
"Ali & Jackie would be proud."
Last night at the ESPYs, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, and LeBron James kicked off the awards show by delivering a message about gun violence and racial justice.
And asked their fellow athletes to join a legacy of past professional athletes who were active in social justice.
It was incredibly powerful.
And apparently the four NBA players came up with the idea all on their own.
A lot of people on the internet loved their speech.
And were moved by their passionate words.
Overall, it was a great success.
