MATT BARNES TO START SCHOLARSHIP FUND FOR STEPHON CLARK’S SONS
“I have two 9 year old sons just like this and I fear for them. I fear for the streets, and now I gotta fear for the cops. How do we explain to our kids that because of the color of your skin people aren’t gonna like you?”
These were the words of newly retired NBA Forward and Finals Champion Matt Barnes as he addressed a group of people in a peaceful rally he organized in remembrance of Stephon Clark, the young man who was gunned down March 18 by police. Barnes also announced The Clark Boys Fund which will provide funds to foster a college education for Clark’s sons giving them a better opportunity.
