TURIN – Serie A like the Bundesliga. Our league has restarted with the goal of Nkoulou . The Turin footballer knelt to dedicate his net to George Floyd , brutally killed by a Minneapolis policeman.
Before Nkoulou, many Bundesliga players, the first to leave in Europe, had dedicated their nets to the unfortunate African American.
The gesture of kneeling in protest against racism was invented by NFL star Colin Kaepernick in 2016.
This gesture has cost dear to the football player since he has been without a team for four years but has now returned to close relevance after the killing of George Floyd by a policeman.
To combat racism, the African American community has decided to kneel in protest.
This gesture has been taken up by many athletes all over the world (we have several examples in the German Bundesliga from the son of Thuram in Sancho).
Kaepernick was practically barred from the NFL despite being a star in this league.
In fact, when the football player protested against the abuses suffered by African Americans he found himself without a team and the NFL clubs were forced not to hire him anymore.
