Ghanaian basketball player Maxwell Amoafo, popularly known as Max Mode, has joined the Black Lives Matter protests in Canada.
Mass protests have been held in the US and other parts of the world following the death of George Floyd. Floyd died on May 25, 2020, in Minneapolis after a white police officer knelt on his neck for over eight minutes.
Maxwell, who plays for the University of Saskatchewan in Canada, joined other protesters to condemn racism and the inhumane treatment meted out to Black People in the world.
He posted photos of the protest on Twitter. He is seen in the photos displaying a placard with the inscription: “Black Lives Matter”
“To celebrate diversity and not address the disparity is hypocrisy. #BlackLivesMattters,” he stated in one of his posts.
Maxwell Amoafo was a member of the Mfantsipim School basketball team that won the Sprite Ball Championship.
