It is unfortunate that we are constantly reminded that we remain separate as a race through the tragic deaths of men like George Floyd. We have to understand this is not an American problem. This is a world wide problem. Racism happens in your country, it happens in your city and it happens in your neighbourhood.
The only way we will end this is not to fight as an individual, but to come together as a community to protect and support the people that are most in need.
We all came together under the passion for sneakers, and Sneaker Speculation will not have existed without the unconditional support from people of different cultures. Although we may not be hugely influential page, the Sneaker Speculation team will try our best to utilise our existing platforms to provide support and help the ones in need.
We hope this movement goes further than a mere trend. Stay safe and stay informed, thank you.
