“Not everything that is faced can be changed; but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” -James Baldwin. ・・・
#TyrekeSmith, at just 17 years old has 40 scholarship offers, and is juggling offers from top schools on college football. As a four-star defensive, he's one of high school football's top recruits. He's been sought after by Ohio State, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, Penn State, Texas, UCLA and USC! Wow! And he's now decided to use the platform he has to draw attention to pressing issues.
"I decided to wear the shirt because I wanted to bring attention to the epidemic of blacks being killed at an alarming rate,” Tyreke said. “What we would like to do is have people talk about these issues to reduce the murder rate of African Americans.” #Repost @kojosweet.
