Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff took to Instagram on Saturday night, advocating for change while also asking people to “Love each other a little more than usual.”
Jared Goff acknowledged he does not have the same shared experiences as Black Americans, also stating it is his “responsibility” to educate himself and engage in discourse so as to facilitate change.
Jared Goff is aware that tensions in the U.S. have grown considerably after the death of George Floyd, who died in police custody on Monday in Minneapolis.
Protests against racial injustice have been organized in major cities throughout the country, though many have escalated in terms of violence and escalation between protesters and police forces.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom deployed the state’s National Guard to the L.A. area on Saturday evening, eliciting concern from Jared Goff and others.
