Former AFL player explains the racial profiling he experienced

Former AFL footballer Tony Armstrong delivered a powerful message at the start of the Yokayi Footy show.

Armstrong who played 15 games for the Sydney Swans and 6 games for Collingwood said it’s important for Australians to know that Indigenous people have gone through the same experiences as African Americans in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

“The Australian response (to Floyd’s death). Thank God that stuff doesn’t happen here.”

“Speak to anyone from our mob and they’ll tell you the same stories. They’ll tell you the same stories and much worse,” he said.
