In Sunday afternoon, the Philadelphia 76ers released a statement following the continued protests around the country, after the tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, MN.

The team said in their statement:

Our black community and people of color continue to face racism, prejudice and injustice. It is unacceptable and we cannot and will not tolerate it in our community. Now, more than ever, we must strive for accountability, including ensuring that our community is treated with fairness, transparency and dignity.

For our city.

For our future.

For each other.
