Reggie Cannon is feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted after watching the murder of George Floyd and the subsequent national outrage. The 21-year-old FC Dallas defender said his frustration, in part, comes from a stronger reaction from some to “the looting and the rioting and protests going on than the continuing systematic racism that ultimately results in a loss of a life,” he said on ESPN’s Banter.
But Cannon, who was planning on attending a protest with his wife, is also encouraged by a larger community being outraged about racial injustice than following previous incidents.
“There’s definitely a new wave of people speaking up about this and that’s brightening to see,” Cannon said.
