Add Penguins captain Sidney Crosby to the list of athletes who have spoken out against social inequality in the wake of George Floyd being killed while in police custody last week in Minneapolis.
Crosby, in a statement released by the team Wednesday, said:
"What happened to George Floyd cannot be ignored. Racism that exists today in all forms is not acceptable. While I am not able to relate to the discrimination that black and minority communities face daily, I will listen and educate myself on how I can help make a difference.
"Together, we will find solutions through necessary dialogue and a collective effort."
