Wilfried Zaha clarifies his stance on the campaign of Black Lives Matter

Wilfried Zaha, midfielder of Crystal Palace, clarified his stance on the campaign of Black Lives Matter. Before matches, the Ivorian has previously spoken out against players getting down on one knee, noting that such acts do little to combat racism in reality.

“I have already said that I find it embarrassing to get down on one knee but my parents have always told me that I should be proud to be black no matter what happens. So I guess I’m going to stand with my head kept high,’ Zaha told Sky Sports.

“Before matches, we take a knee, but sometimes people forget that we have to do that already. We want to add some sense to it, but for me, it’s not enough. I’m not going to take a knee, I’m not going to put Black Lives Matter on my back, because it’s used as a target right now.

We set ourselves apart from the rest of the globe. We talk about equality, but things like that alienate us and don’t work at all. That’s my stance. I think we need to stand with our heads held high.”
