Russell Westbrook spoke to the crowd during the protest in an effort to encourage them, “Continue to stick together,” he said. “Continue to fight for one another. Continue to lift each other up. … Continue to protect your own, protect your team, protect your family. In times like this, we need to stick together. Put a fist up.”
“Let’s get a moment of silence. For our lost ones. For their families. For their struggles,” Westbrook added with his fist in the air.
“It’s impossible for you to understand what happens today if you don’t understand the past. Let’s continue to fight,” he added on Instagram.
