A Powerful Message

The senseless death of George Floyd, which has now been ruled a homicide moved Miller to speak up. His statement is raw and powerful. “I struggle because I’ve never been fully accepted by either the black community or the white community.” K’Andre continued his story by saying he’s been one of the only people of color on his hockey teams. Even though he was targeted because of his race he refused to give up on the game he loves.

”You can only imagine how it felt to have an organization like the New York Rangers draft me, the hockey player.” Miller’s next words should reverberate with any good person who believes in equality. “For that moment in time I didn’t have to be defined by the color of my skin but rather my hockey skills, athletic ability and character. This is how it should be all the time.”

This IS how it should be ALL the TIME. Miller’s full statement is below.
