In recent days, the focus all across the country and world has been on racial injustice and police brutality after George Floyd was killed by a police officer in Minnesota.

Plenty of people have been using their voices to inspire changes, and that includes the Las Vegas Raiders organization. Raiders owner Mark Davis led the way by releasing a statement on the matter, while Maxx Crosby and Derek Carr are among those to do the same.

Additionally, Raiders wide receiver Zay Jones shared a touching story on social media about a white woman who stopped him while shopping to tell him that his life matters.

In addition to speaking out on social media, many people have taken further action to let their voices be heard with protests taking place all across the world. Some of those protests have turned into riots, unfortunately, and that led to a police officer in Las Vegas named Shay Mikalonis recently being shot. While Mikalonis is still alive, he is currently on life support and fighting for his life.

The Raiders again took to social media to release a statement after the shooting of Mikalonis, offering their condolences:

The Raiders are brand new to the Las Vegas community, but since they moved from Oakland, they have been doing as much as they can to help out, whether it be this instance, or donating to coronavirus (COVID-19) relief efforts.

While shooting a police officer is never the answer, hopefully Mikalonis can make a full recovery and the message that people are trying to get across about racial injustice and police brutality is not diminished.
