Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has pledged $1m to “improve police training and address systemic racism” in the United States.
It comes in the wake of the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, while being restrained by a white Minneapolis police officer on 25 May.
“As a black multiracial American, I am disgusted and unsettled, “I try to understand and find the positive in every situation or aspect of my life” he told TMZ.
“As our communities take action, protesting and fighting for the justice of George Floyd and every black life, I am with you!”
“This might not be huge, but I just wanted to be able to contribute to this cause, to improve the police, and keep our people safe” he added.
