The news was not taken well by people of all races in America, and many took to social media to voice their disappointment and frustration. Kobe Bryant was one of those who gave his views on Twitter:

Beyond his initial tweet, Nash continued to debate with fans who disagreed with his feelings on the matter. Kobe and Nash are two of the most outspoken players in the NBA, so it should come as no surprise that both of them would speak out on such a controversial subject.

With something that affects black men across America, expect many other athletes and celebrities in all walks of life to have their views on this subject. Whether or not it sparks change in a system many believe to be flawed remains to be seen. But it will surely allow many to speak out.
