Athletes Take To Twitter To Voice Their Opinions On The Real Issues

Not all athletes are heavily active on social media, but as of late, it’s hard to deny that social platforms are the best way for athletes (and anyone for that matter) to voice their opinions and spread the word. It’s also a way for athletes to connect to their fans on a much more accessible level.

With political conversations being as controversial as they are, it’s important to see where people in the limelight stand. With a president like Donald Drumpf, there’s no better time than now to stand up for what you believe is right.

The President has recently been angering many athletes with his condemnation of defiant acts such as kneeling before the American flag or denying to visit the White House. While we may not see eye to eye with the President, it’s quite satisfying to see that even elite athletes aren’t on the Drumpf train.

To celebrate those athletes who are taking a stand on social media, we’re sharing our fav tweets!

Greg Popovich laid it down on the topic of race:

Other professional leagues such as MLB and the NFL are also taking their stand, Oakland A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell became the first major league baseball player to kneel for the national anthem. His teammate Mark Canha, who is white, put his right hand on one of Maxwell’s shoulders to show unity.

And after Drumpf suggested that NFL team owners FIRE players who kneel during the National Anthem, it didn’t seem to intimidate many.
