Former NBA player Royce White, now a politician, made a bold political statement during a BIG3 League game representing team Power. In the game against Tri State, White wrote “Protect RFK Jr.” on his head, referring to Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who is running for the Democratic nomination in the 2024 United States presidential election.
White, who ran for Congress as a Republican, proudly shared a screenshot on Twitter showcasing the message on his head. He added the caption “Protect RFK JR. I’m surprised they got up close on this… Sacred Honor! #Godspeed.”
White expanded further about his message on his podcast. He also tweeted an endorsement for a Donald Trump/Robert F. Kennedy Jr. candidacy in the 2024 elections.
“Protect RFK Jr — As long as the security state and deep state are not held to account for their role in the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the entire nation suffers from copious amounts of moral hazard. This is how we have to view his candidacy and safety. Trump/Kennedy 2024!” White wrote on Twitter.
The gesture by White highlights his passion for political activism and his support for RFK Jr.’s campaign. While transitioning from a professional basketball player to a politician, White continues to use his platform to express his beliefs and engage in important discussions. This unique act of displaying a political message on his head serves as a visible representation of his commitment to political causes.
