With protests against police violence in the United States, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott went to Instagram to express support for the cause of change, as well as to pledge the sum of $ 1 million “to improve our police training and fight systematic racism through education and advocacy in our country”.
Beyond that, Prescott doesn’t say where exactly the $ 1 million checks will go, but you can expect mixed reactions from the public if it actually intends to donate money to a police department. The engagement was part of a fairly long statement posted on Instagram – here is a part of it:
“As a multiracial black American, I am disgusted and confused! I am optimistic as I go! I try to understand and find the positive in every situation or aspect of my life … I have seen these demonstrations and riots in our streets as a form of force and an attempt to show that we blacks have rights that are not perceived in the same way as our counterparts. “
Prescott also alluded to the recent death of his older brother Jace, who reportedly died in April this year:
“As I deal with the death of my brother, I realized that we do not have the floor to say how much we matter. It is our duty to tell our neighbor how much they matter to us and to take a stand for the greater good of each other. “
No matter where Prescott intends to direct his million dollars, he will undoubtedly be able to afford the gift, as many expect him to sign a big contract with the Cowboys before becoming a free agent. next year. And Dallas Cowboys fans are also waiting to see if they manage to post an official demonstration of support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
