Dwyane Wade Makes A Statement With His Hair

As Black people nationwide grieve and continue protesting police brutality and racism, the NBA has responded.

3 days after Jacob Blake was shot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, NBA players went on a strike.

Jacob Blake was shot seven times by a police officer named Rusten Sheskey.

Former NBA player Dwyane Wade made his own statement by incorporating the symbolic Black Power fist into his hair.

Wade shared the new hairstyle on Instagram with nine Black fists as the caption.
