Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant spoke with Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated on Friday about his thoughts and feelings following the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who was killed in Minneapolis Police custody May 25.
Of note, the two discussed Durant's reaction, the world's response, his thoughts on what should happen to the four former officers involved in Floyd's killing and the work KD is doing to provide assistance to racial justice programs.
The 10-time All-Star praised the black community for coming together and supporting one another following Floyd's death:
Durant noted that the video of Floyd's killing reminded him of other killings of black people by police, and he wondered whether it will elicit change.
Spears asked Durant about his involvement in racial justice programs, including working with the Center for Policing Equity, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Silicon Valley Debug, Open Societies Institute-Baltimore Justice Fund and the Inner Harbor Project.
