Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott says he will donate $1-million to “improve police training and address systemic racism” in the United States through education and advocacy.
Prescott made the pledge on Wednesday as protests continue over the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died after a white police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes in Minneapolis on May 25.
“As a black, multiracial American, I am disgusted and unsettled,” Prescott wrote on Instagram.
Floyd’s death has triggered a wave of outrage and demonstrations. Four Minneapolis police officers are facing charges.
