Dak Prescott is willing to do his part to help improve the issues he believes we have with police training and systemic racism in America.

Following recent sobering events around the nation, the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys asks everyone to take action to help solve these issues.

Instead of simply using a call to action, Prescott is doing his part and donating $1 million to “improve our police training and addressing systemic racism through education and advocacy in our country.”

He also offered these thoughts:

“As a black multiracial American, I am disgusted and unsettled! As our communities take action, protesting and fighting for the justice of George Floyd and every black life, I am with you! . . . As I process the passing of my brother, I have come to realize we are not given a voice to pronounce how much we matter. It is our obligation to tell our neighbor how much they matter to us and take a stand for the greater good of each other.”

Prescott also issued a statement to law enforcement:

“To the men and women that police our streets, I have the utmost respect for those of you with a passion for protecting and serving our communities. When you chose to wear a badge of a police officer, you pledged to PROTECT life and property through the enforcement of our laws and regulations. How can you claim to uphold the law when those within your ranks don’t abide by it? You need to hold your own accountable! Each of your are as guilty as the men who stood beside Derek Chauvin if you do not stand up against the systemic racism plaguing our police forces nationwide.”
