Stephen Curry is proud to be part of ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement

Being one of the prominent faces at the current moment, Stephen Curry also believes ‘this generation’ can fly to change. “This generation I think and some of the young people that I’ve met at protests…They understand that this generation can be the change and can be the ones that plant their flag in the ground. That says, ‘We’re not going to accept this anymore and at all costs, it’s going to change.'” 

Steph also participated in rallies and he feels ‘proud’ to be one of those involved in this movement. “This generation of athlete is very responsible and accountable…I’m proud to be part of that movement,” he told Dr. Clarence Jones.

When a three-time champion and two-time MVP becomes vocal about a certain cause, it surely impacts a large audience. He is a role model for many and as an eminent figure, he exhibited strength to all those working towards change. Well, he is not the only one. Kyle Kuzma, Kyrie Irving, Russell Westbrook, and many others have stood up for the right.

For a couple of weeks, the protests turned intense in the country and created havoc amongst people. Also, people are posting and taking a stand as part of ‘Black Lives Matter’ in large numbers. It is not just restricted to the United States anymore, it’s grasping the attention from all over the world.
