MLB: Chicago Cubs at St. Louis Cardinals Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

On May 25 an unarmed black man named George Floyd was murdered by four police officers in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The murder was recorded by cell phones from civilians nearby. The footage was published online and viewed by millions of people across the world, prompting several days of protest and civil unrest as people called for charges to be brought against the officers responsible. People are once again demanding justice and an end to the systemic oppression that brought us to this sad and tragic point and another black life lost.

Among the many calling for change are Cardinals players Jack Flaherty, Dexter Fowler, and Adam Wainwright, along with his wife Jenny. This is what they had to say:
