Stephon Clark was a 22 year old unarmed black man who was shot and killed by Sacramento, California in his grandma’s backyard.
Well, today the National Football League released a public service announcement around the death of Stephon.
He was killed March 18, 2018. Clark was shot eight times by two officers who later said they mistook his cellphone for a gun as he moved toward them with his arms extended, ignoring their commands, while in his grandmother’s backyard. Twenty rounds were fired in total, according to police.
I think the NFL is going to be a lot more of this as the year moves on. This was such a sad incident.
The video is the fifth produced by Roc Nation and the NFL to help raise awareness in communities to end systemic racism. Roc Nation is Jay-Z’s artist and athlete management company. Roc Nation has at least 12 clients in the NFL.
