Desean Jackson To Rock Custom Shoes To Protest Police Brutality
Ballers are finding more ways to protest the police killings of Black people. Instead of taking a knee, baller DeSean Jackson plans to make a statement at today’s game with his footwear.
Desean reportedly hired artist Marcus Rivero — a.k.a. SolesBySir — to design a yellow caution tape wrap around on his cleats to protest the frequent deaths of unarmed African Americans at the hands of police.
TMZ caught up with Desean to find out more about the statement he intends to make with his caution tape cleats:
We reached out to Jackson for a comment … and were told “I’ve seen enough yellow caution tape and it’s time for a stand and a change in our community and society.”
“Senseless killings have been ongoing for awhile and police brutality in our black community … and as a young black leader with a stage and platform I’m starting awareness to help prevent these killings, and hopefully get justice to these cops who have taken lives of innocent human beings.”
Jackson says he doesn’t just want justice, but also “a change with the decision making on these cop killings.”
“I am also coming up with a master plan to start a movement” with the intention of making a real impact.
We’re told Jackson plans to wear the cleats during pregame warmups tomorrow … and possibly during the game.
We wonder what Desean’s plan will entail. Good for him taking a stand in his own way…
