Track star Sha’Carri Richardson is known for her skills on the track and being outspoken personality.  On Nov. 20 in a social media post she addressed critics who take offense to her social media posts.

The 21-year-old was clear made it clear that she’s a Black woman first and athlete second. These comments come after she got some backlash for sharing a post comparing the acquittal of Kenosha protest shooter Kyle Rittenhouse to the murders of Tamir Rice and Trayvon Martin. Both of the killers in those cases got any criminal consequences.

“I am just stopping by to say this–that I am Black before I’m an athlete. So if you don’t like the fact that I post for what I believe in and for my people and you not a believer in that then just simply unfollow me,” she said.

The sprinter took aim at those “blinded by privilege” and clearly said that she’s not for them and will keep on posting all the pro-Black content she likes.

“You’re not going to stop seeing it because that’s the reality that we live in and if you are blinded by privilege, then you can’t be a fan of mines,” she said. “So take it or leave it. Unfollow me or not but I’m going to continue to share and spread the word of reality for the Black society and for the people that are around that understand as well. But I’m not stopping so unfollow me!”
