Penn State basketball player Sam Sessoms posted a powerful message on Twitter this morning about racial inequality involving police and African-Americans, in the wake of yesterday’s attack on the US Capitol.

Sessoms is a junior guard from Philadelphia who transferred to Penn State last year from Binghamton. He is in his first season with the Nittany Lions. He’s the team’s third-leading scorer at 12.6 points per game.

The Penn State men’s basketball program has paused team activities due to positive COVID results.

PSU junior guard Myles Dread also made a comment on Twitter about yesterday’s mob on the US Capitol.
