Tamika Catchings -- WNBA Backs Other Causes ... Why Not 'Black Lives Matter??' (VIDEO)

Tamika Catchings WNBA Backs Other Causes ... Why Not 'Black Lives Matter??'

7/24/2016 10:44 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

WNBA superstar Tamika Catchings is severely disappointed in her league for its reaction to players supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, and thinks something needs to change quickly.

We got the Indiana Fever star at LAX, and she didn't hold back her feelings about the league fining players from several teams for wearing 'BLM' t-shirts during warm-ups. In Tamika's eyes, there's a double standard, since she says the league gets on board with lots of other movements.

She believes this one is especially important because the vast majority of WNBA players are African-American.  As it turns out ... the WNBA dropped the fines a few hours after we shot this video, and says it plans to work with the players to come up with a solution.

Catchings is President of the WNBA Players Association ... so she'll likely be in on those talks. Check out her perspective.
