MANILA, Philippines — Filipino-American Jordan Clarkson joined protests in Los Angeles following the death of black man George Floyd.

Floyd, 46, died in police custody after Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for five minutes and cut off his air supply.

The Utah Jazz guard is only one of a number of NBA players who have joined the protests in the fight against racism.

Former Cleveland Cavalier JR Smith was among those who joined Clarkson in the protest.
