For decades athletes have stepped out in support or opposition to many different social, religious and political issues. African American athletes like Mohammad Ali, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Jim Brown were outspoken in their support for the black community during the Civil Rights movement and beyond. They were beloved by people of all colors and became a bridge for many people toward understanding the plight of African Americans.
In the instant that athletes discard their professional identity for a communal one, speaking, for example, as a pacifist-Muslim instead of a boxer or an African American instead of a quarterback, they humanize themselves to the nation in a powerful and relatable way, and in turn open themselves up to losing that professional identity altogether. When Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the National Anthem he was following a long line of athletes who have used their positions to further social justice and bring a spotlight on issues of importance.
Pro-Test is a tribute to all of our heroes and professional athletes who were courageous and unselfish enough to protest against racial inequality and police brutality.
