NHL issues statement calling for justice amid protests


  • With protests, many violent and some peaceful, raging across North America in the aftermath of an unarmed black man dying while being held down by a white police officer in Minneapolis, the NHL joined others calling for racial justice.

  • If the NHL really want to make a statement about this, they should address racism within your own league.
  • Probably less of this, to start.

  • Stop doing police and military nights at games until cops stop killing black citizens with impunity.
  • When Kaepernick was protesting peacefully by taking a knee against police brutality, players were warned against kneeling in solidarity.
  • It would be interesting to see how the NHL would react if one of their players would take a knee down during National Anthem.
  • It’s time for some real change.
  • Black Lives Matter !!!
  • George Floyd died in Minneapolis on Monday. He was in handcuffs and face down on a city street as police officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck, and prosecutors have filed murder and manslaughter charges against Chauvin.
