Protests continue to take place all over the country in the wake of George Floyd's death in Minneapolis. Boston was the host of a peaceful protest Sunday, and a familiar face showed up to speak. Boston Celtics forward Enes Kanter, who's faced plenty of injustice in his life, grabbed a microphone and delivered a powerful speech to those gathered around him.
Kanter is no stranger to fighting for social justice. He spoke out against the president of Turkey and is cut off from family and friends in his home country.
Sunday saw him take part in another protest, while sharing some strong words about how change is desperately needed in this country. He admitted the scenario made him emotional, making his speech even more relatable to those feeling lost and angry right now.
Kanter talking about being on the right side of history is a powerful notion. Peacefully protesting is an American right, and Kanter being on the streets in Boston shows that he cares deeply about what is going on in his current home country.
