When football player Zach Banner posted a video on Twitter protesting an anti-Semitic Instagram post by DeSean Jackson, he became one of the first NFL players to speak out on the issue. Banner’s video quickly drew more than 700,000 views and an outpouring of praise. His B3 Foundation, which supports Black and Brown youth in Tacoma, Los Angeles, and Guam, suddenly received more than $60,000 in donations, most in increments of $18 (the numeric value assigned to Hebrew letters that mean “life.”) As a former member of Zeta Beta Tau, a historically Jewish fraternity, Banner credits his fraternity brothers with sharing their families' experiences as part of his learning about the Jewish community. In his work with Black Lives Matter, he advocates that communities of color understand the Jewish experience of discrimination and seek ways to elevate themselves without “stepping on the back of other people.”
