June 2, 2020 | 9:52am
Jets star Jamal Adams took to Twitter Monday night to share his thoughts on the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and the growing protests and civil unrest throughout the country.
“Over the past few days I’ve been struggling with the pain from daily injustices in America,” the 24-year-old safety wrote. “It’s something new every day! I think it’s important to find your peace in all of this and remember self-care and positive energy.
“My heart goes out to the family and friends of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery. They’re more than just hashtags. It’s disgusting that we don’t have time to deal with our trauma before the next tragedy. We can’t let these conversations die and can’t forget those we’ve lost.”
Adams joins a growing list of professional athletes who have spoken out on racial injustice amid protests across the country.
“Stop killing us,” he continued. “This isn’t just a political issue, this is about the morality of our nation. We all have a part to play!”
