Following the killing of George Floyd, peaceful protests were organized by groups across the United States to speak out against racial discrimination against African-Americans by police officers. Unfortunately the narrative shifted due to a select few deciding to use these protests as a means to vandalize and destroy places of business. In downtown San Antonio, the initial demonstration ended at 7 p.m. CT on Saturday, but rioters began breaking breaking into and looting stores, while police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at crowds in the streets. On Sunday morning, Spurs shooting guard Lonnie Walker IV volunteered to be a part of cleanup duty.
It's tremendous to see Walker step forward to help out San Antonio.
Walker started off his day by handing out water and food to fellow volunteers, while also asking if they needed some help. That was when he noticed a group of individuals cleaning up graffiti and decided lend a hand.
The young Spurs guard didn't post these acts of kindness on his own social media account for clout. These videos were taken by San Antonio citizens who noticed Walker doing his part to help cleanup his home away from home.
