Baltimore Ravens Demand Arrest of Officers Involved in the Shooting of Jacob Blake
IJR: In a statement released on Wednesday, the Baltimore Ravens declared it is time to acknowledge the lasting effects of racial injustice and called for the arrest of the officers responsible for Breonna Taylor’s murder and the shooting of Jacob Blake.
“With yet another example of racial discrimination with the shooting of Jacob Blake and the unlawful abuse of peaceful protesters, we MUST unify as a society. It is imperative that all people — regardless of race, religion, creed, or belief — come together to say, ‘Enough is enough!'” the team said.
It continued, “This is bigger than sports. Racism is embedded in the fabric of our nation’s foundation and is a blemish on our country’s history. If we are to change course and make our world a better place, we must face this problem head-on and act now to enact positive change.”
