The United States has been filled with riots in recent days after a police officer used excessive force to kill a black man named George Floyd in Minnesota.

This type of police brutality is the exact reason NFL star Colin Kaepernick decided to take a knee during the national anthem and got blackballed by the whole league for it, likely ending his career.

Amidst all of the riots and hatred though, there have been some positives to take away from the situation. People all across the country of different races and ethnicities have joined forces to fight against racism and police brutality.

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Zay Jones took to social media to share a touching story of an encounter he had with an older woman from Minnesota who wanted to tell him that his life matters as a black man in America:

Jones sharing that story was really cool and should help bring more people together during this difficult time.

The Raiders acquired Jones from the Buffalo Bills in the middle of last season. While his impact on the field wasn’t huge in 2019, it is good to see that he is making an impact in the community and vocalizing what he believes is right.

A number of other Raiders players, including quarterback Derek Carr, have recently done the same, hopefully sparking some much-needed change in our country.
