GOLDEN KNIGHTS RELEASE STATEMENT ON PROTESTS IN THE WAKE OF GEORGE FLOYD’S DEATH

Monday was the fifth consecutive night that protesters gathered on the Las Vegas strip to support the Black Lives Matter movement.

On Tuesday, the Golden Knights released an official statement, saying:

“The Vegas Golden Knights vehemently condemn racism in all its forms. Prejudice, violence and bigotry have no place in our society. We understand significant reforms are needed in order to create lasting, meaningful change that will end the systemic discrimination and injustices that have existed for far too long. We firmly stand in solidarity with all of those who peacefully seek to inspire this change.

We believe in protecting those who are unable to protect themselves. We are committed to working with all our neighbors - regardless of race, creed, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic class - to help unite our community and our nation together as one.”



Their sentiments were echoed in a statement made by the Las Vegas Raiders, which stated:

"To watch a man be murdered by a uniformed police officer kneeling on the man's throat for 9 minutes... While three uniformed officers either assisted or stood by watching is disturbing in too many ways. To be honest, I'm surprised that the resulting violence hasn't been worse. Emotions are high, temperatures are hot and there's static in the air. But burning your brother's house down is ultimately not the answer. Not only do we have to tell people there is something wrong. We have to come up with solutions. That's the challenge in front of us. Not only as Americans. But as human beings. - Mark Davis”
