Caron Butler: When our society hurts, we hurt as people and athletes. That’s something you can’t go to the basketball court and unplug. We see things that happen in Black, Brown, and LatinX communities where we grew up and are responsible for, not because of a campaign, but because we’re part of the fabric of the community and we’re considered heroes in those communities. It’s important to identify and recognize that and it’s important for us to make sure we’re using the platform to better the communities and those inspired by us. I think Kobe said it best, imagine all we did was play basketball. We play a sport at a high level and if that’s all we did with these massive platforms while people look at us for direction, shame on us all the way around.

That Blake, shot seven times by the Kenosha police, will apparently survive is a miracle; that he is reportedly paralyzed from the waist down is the latest successful assault on a Black body by authorities empowered to use deadly force at any whim. “When you think about the Black population in the state of Wisconsin, it pretty much resides in Racine, Kenosha and Milwaukee,” said former NBA star Caron Butler, a Racine native. “However, Racine and Kenosha is like two of the most segregated places on the damn planet. Like Down South-type segregation.”
