Several members of D.C. United, including forwards Ola Kamara and Ulises Segura, were out on the pitch at Audi Field on Sunday painting an “I can’t breathe” mural in support of the protests against racial injustice that have swept the U.S. over the past two weeks.
The project started just a few days after a mural was painted on the streets of D.C. to commemorate African-Americans who have lost their lives at the hands of racism in the U.S.

On May 31, D.C. United released a statement on Twitter condemning acts of racism and demanding change. The recent protests were sparked by the death of George Floyd, who died in Minneapolis while in police custody.
