In going on strike for today's Game 5 playoff game vs. the Orlando Magic, the Bucks players are making an unprecedented statement in the fight for racial justice in protesting the use of force against Blake by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The 29-year-old Blake was unarmed when he was shot seven times in the back on Sunday, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. For the Bucks, police brutality is personal. In January 2018, Bucks player Sterling Brown had a knee to his neck and was punched by Milwaukee police officers for parking incorrectly in a Walgreens parking lot in the middle of the night. Their strike comes on the fourth anniversary of Colin Kaepernick beginning his peaceful protest during the National Anthem before an NFL preseason game.
