Athletes feel.and will increasing frequency, athletes act.Some NBA players knelt before their games last night to protest the violence at the United States Capitol on Wednesday. If you don’t think that athletes voices matter, look no further than Georgia and the historic election of the Rev. Raphael Warnock. On Tuesday, Warnock became the South’s first black senator and he dit it with a huge assist from the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream Last August the players launched a campaign to unseat republican senator Kelly Loeffler who also happens to be the team’s co-owner .The players, angered that Loeffler disparaged the black lives matter movement and the say her name initiative, wore Vote For Warnock T shirts and worked feverishly to register young voters. Now Rev Warnock is headed to Washington and athletes should never again doubt the mountains they can move when they work together.Use your voices.SHOUT!Trust me, you will be heard
