Basketball Champion #CarmeloAnthony is #UPP
“The trip, which Anthony said was organized just over a day before it all unfolded, was consistent with his recent personal theme. Anthony, who has been active in speaking out about the #BlackLivesMatter movement and recently led a town hall in #LosAngeles to discuss such matters with community leaders and police officers, is fast becoming the NBA’s most influential social voice.
But this visit came with one concerning disclaimer: there was no security detail allowed. Ironically, Anthony’s visit took place a day after American swimmer Ryan #Lochte was robbed at gunpoint in Rio while in a taxi.The highlight came near the end of the trip, when Anthony’s time there was memorialized in a way he never imagined. One of the artists who works with the local children decided to spray-paint a mural of Anthony on a concrete wall that stands on the favela hill.” – @USAToday
