Brooklyn Nets, Barclays Center React To Protests: ‘We Call For A Peaceful Response In Our Joint Fight Against Racism’

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Brooklyn’s Barclays Center has become a gathering place for protesters, but it’s also a site where they’ve clashed with police.

Sunday morning, the Brooklyn Nets, Long Island Nets, New York Liberty and Barclays Center sent out a joint message.

“Today, we stand up and speak up against all forms of racism — overt or subconscious — especially against the Black community,” the statement says in part.

It goes on to say they feel the raw emotion but call for a peaceful response in the joint fight against racism.
