SUPERSTARS Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson were among several Golden State Warriors players who participated Wednesday in a Walking in Unity march in the area of Oakland’s Lake Merritt.
The march was organized by the Warriors’ Juan Toscano-Anderson and took place in and around the same locations that previously held the Warriors’ NBA championship rallies and parades. Warriors players Kevon Looney and Damion Lee also participated.
“We’re all here for the same purpose, not just for black people,” Toscano-Anderson said at the outset of the protest in a video on the team’s Twitter account. “Right now, it’s about black people, but for humanity. There are people all over the world being oppressed. And we’re just trying to take a step in the right direction and start something – me and my boys, my brothers. Thank you, guys, for being here.”
