Listen to this post with Alexa!

Former Texas Longhorn and NFL player Emmanuel Acho has a strong message for white people what they can do to help.

In what he says is the first video in a series titled, “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man,” the Austin resident addresses many questions he’s been asked by white people.

Austin.com is and always has been a site that celebrates and promotes the unique people and places of Austin, TX and surrounding cities. Though many businesses, locations, and events are closed at this time, we continue to highlight those things so that you can plan to experience them in the future.

The caption of the tweet pinned to the top of his feed reads, “Dear white people, For days you’ve asked me what you can do to help. I’ve finally found an answer. Let your guard down and listen.”

Here’s the powerful video message from Emmanuel Acho:

Thank you for taking the time and finding the right words, Emmanuel.
