In the aftermath of the despicable, abhorrent, unconscionable murder of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, at the knee of a white police officer, myriad FBS head coaches have spoken out and spoken up.

The incident led to widespread protests and demonstrations in cities from San Francisco to Boston. After the man passed away after having a knee pressed into his neck by a police officer identified as Derek Chauvin, the sporting world came together to protest about the same.

Floyd, 46, died Monday after he was pinned to the ground - handcuffed and unarmed - by a police officer with his knee on Floyd's neck for almost nine minutes as he cried out, "I can't breathe".

We have a platform, and we have a duty to our Black members, employees, creators and talent to speak up".
