Saturday night Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose wore an “I Can’t Breathe” T-shirt in pregame warm-ups before the game against the Golden State Warriors.
A video of the arrest showed Garner gasping for air, with his last words being “I can’t breathe,” during the fatal encounter. There have been protests across the nation, and the world to show black lives matter.
Rose, a Chicago native, has been involved with initiatives to help Chicago youth. Derrick participated in several events aimed at awareness for the many teens that are losing their lives to violence in the city. Last summer he donated $1 million to After School Matters, a Chicago-based nonprofit organization that helps teenagers.
