(BlackPressRadio.net) – After a horrifying moment during a LIVE broadcast of an NCAA Division I game, players are beginning to reach out to organizations for help. The players don’t feel that the league – which pays the coaches as much as $1-3 million a year but the players aren’t compensated – doesn’t put players safety and the financial pressures of the lives at the forefront.
Players say the want more protection and more assurances that they’re going to be put first. They’re asking for more support during a global pandemic and worry about being treated like prey after Keyontae Johnson COLLAPSED on the court.
Many of the coaches heavily support Trumpism and aren’t quick to support masks.
Established in 2018, Nuturing Black Athletes has agreed to investigate on behalf of the players.
