Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac stands as others kneel before the start of the game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Magic on Friday.

周五布魯克林籃網隊和魔術隊的比賽開始前,奧蘭多魔術隊的前鋒喬納森·艾薩克站立著而沒有和其他人一起下跪。


The television broadcast showed Isaac, who is Black, standing as players and coaches from both teams, as well as referees, took a knee during the playing of the National Anthem. The 22-year-old forward was also the only player seen not wearing a "Black Lives Matter" shirt.

電視播放的畫面顯示,艾薩克是個黑人,在演奏美國國歌時,他作為兩支球隊的球員、教練以及裁判站在那里。這位22歲的前鋒也是唯一一名沒有穿“黑命也重要”球衣的球員。

Isaac can be seen wearing his Magic game jersey instead.

而艾薩克則穿著他的魔術隊球衣。

He explained his position on Friday ahead of the game versus the Brooklyn Nets, saying that he doesn''t think "putting that shirt on and kneeling went hand-in-hand with supporting Black lives."

在周五對陣布魯克林籃網隊的比賽之前,他說明了自己的立場,說他不認為“穿上那件球衣跪在地上就意味著支持黑人的生命?!?


"For me Black lives are supported through the gospel. All lives are supported through the gospel," he said. "We all have things that we do wrong and sometimes it gets to a place that we''re pointing fingers at who''s wrong is worst. Or who''s wrong is seen, so I feel like the Bible tells us that we all fall short of God''s glory. That will help bring us closer together and get past skin color. And get past anything that''s on the surface and doesn''t really get into the hearts or men and women."

“對我來說,真理支撐著黑人的生命。所有的生命都是通過真理來支撐的?!拔覀兌加凶鲥e的事情,有時候我們會指責誰做錯了,這是最糟糕的?;蛘呤强凑l做錯了,所以我覺得圣經告訴我們:我們都辜負了神的榮耀。這將幫助我們更緊密地聯系在一起,克服膚色的問題。不要觸及任何表面的東西,而是要真正深入人心不管男人還是女人?!?

Social media observers questioned why he chose to abstain from the league-wide protest.

社交媒體觀察家質疑艾薩克為何在全聯盟的抗議中選擇棄權。



The owners of the Magic, the DeVos family, released a statement in support of the players pre-game protest on Friday. The statement did not allude to Isaac''s decision to stand.

魔術隊老板,德沃斯家族發表了一份聲明,支持球員賽前的抗議。聲明中沒有提及喬納森·艾薩克。


It added, "We are proud of the positive impact our players have made and join with them in the belief that sports can bring people together -- bridging divides and promoting inclusion, equality, diversity and unity. We know this is not about the military, the men and women who serve honorably to keep our communities safe for all, or those who have paid the ultimate price to provide freedom, including freedom of expression."

聲明還說,“我們為我們的運動員所產生的積極影響感到自豪,相信體育可以讓人們團結在一起——彌合分歧,促進包容、平等、多樣性和團結?!蔽覀冎?,這與軍隊無關,與可敬地服務于并維護我們社區安全的男男女女無關,也與那些為提供自由,包括言論自由而付出最終代價的人無關?!?

"We''re confident the entire Magic family has immense respect for these entities and individuals," the statement said. "This is about coming together to end racism once and for all. We are committed to walking alongside our players -- today and in the many days ahead -- in the pursuit of lasting and impactful change."

“我們相信,整個魔術家族都非常尊重這些團體和個人,”聲明說?!拔覀円獔F結起來,徹底地結束種族主義。我們致力于與我們的球員并肩前行——無論是今天還是未來的許多天——追求持久而有影響力的改變?!?
