Georgetown Players Wear ‘I Can’t Breathe’ T-Shirts

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Georgetown basketball team is the latest to stage an “I Can’t Breathe” protest.

The entire roster emerged for the final warmups wearing black short-sleeve T-shirts with the words “I CAN’T BREATHE” in white before Wednesday night’s game against No. 10 Kansas.

Players wore the T-shirts during the national anthem and pregame handshakes, then took them off for the announcement of the starting lineups.

Many notable athletes have written the message on their warmups in recent days, echoing the last words spoken by Eric Garner as police were attempting to arrest him in New York in July. A grand jury decided last week not to indict the officers involved.
