Sierra Leone’s US-based striker Kei Kamara, who joined in the protests this week following the death of George Floyd, says his children and their futures inspired him to make a stance.
Widespread protests have taken place across cities in the United States and globally since Floyd, an unarmed black man, died after being pinned down by a white police officer.
Kamara, who plays for MLS club Colorado Rapids, says he was moved by the action of his children who joined him at the protests.
“I lay down on the ground for nine minutes and my son actually then just lay down next to me, without me even asking him, and Kendrick is only three,” Kamara, 35, told Newsday on the BBC World Service. (BBC)
