The Utah Jazz and Brooklyn Nets wore T-shirts with a message of unity and a denouncement of racism ahead of their Saturday night matchup in the wake of Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook saying a fan racially harassed him during a game in Utah earlier in the week.
A group of Jazz players—Donovan Mitchell, Ekpe Udoh, Thabo Sefolosha, Jae Crowder and Royce O’Neale—came up with the idea for the shirts, according to Ryan McDonald of the Deseret News, which included an image of black and white hands held together and a quote from activist Fred Hampton: “You don’t fight racism with racism, you fight racism with solidarity.”
