DeSean Jackson plans to make some waves on Sunday, and it could cost him fines if he wears it during the game.
According to TMZ Sports — Jackson had artist Marcus Rivera — Mr. SolesBySir — put a yellow caution tape design on his cleats to protest the shooting deaths of African-Americans at the hands of police officers.
“I’ve seen enough yellow caution tape and it’s time for a stand and a change in our community and society.”
“Senseless killings have been ongoing for awhile and police brutality in our black community … and as a young black leader with a stage and platform I’m starting awareness to help prevent these killings, and hopefully get justice to these cops who have taken lives of innocent human beings.”
Jackson says he doesn’t just want justice, but also “a change with the decision-making on these cop killings.”
“I am also coming up with a master plan to start a movement” with the intention of making a real impact.
Jackson will wear the cleats in warmup, but no word on whether he’ll wear them during the game.
Kudos to D Jax.
