It has been another rough week for the United States as two more African American men were killed in police-involved shootings. Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson decided to make a statement during his team’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.
In the second quarter, Robinson snagged his first touchdown of the season and he seemed to celebrate by putting his hands in the air. However, he was making a statement by doing the “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture as a small tribute to the many people killed as a result of police brutality over the last few years.
This is certainly a telling and powerful notion for Allen Robinson to do. He isn’t alone in these types of protests and you have to believe they won’t be going anywhere in the near future.
What do you think of this gesture, fans? Sound off in the comments to let us know.
