Education campaign follows ugly racist incident in Philadelphia
Apr 01, 2019
Professional lacrosse players the Thompson brothers are striking back after a racist incident earlier this year.
While the Thompsons, who hail from the Onondaga Nation in New York, are no strangers to mixing it up physically on the turf, their chosen weapon in this fight is education.
It all began when Lyle Thompson, a member of the Georgia Storm, was targeted because of his braid in a game against Philadelphia. He was harassed by fans and the announcer.
