Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky made his first Instagram post in almost six months Tuesday to show support for those fighting racial injustice.

The Bears spent a two-hour virtual meeting talking about the topic in the wake of the George Floyd murder and subsequent protests around the United States.

“Throughout my life I’ve been blessed to share the field and locker room with countless black men,” Trubisky wrote. “These men and teammates have become family to me. Although I could never understand what they have to experience I empathize with them and love them like brothers.

“I stand with my brothers and sisters in the fight against racial injustices. We need to do more. We must do better. Posts, tweets, and statements aren’t enough. We need to take action. We must take the steps together to make systematic changes to prevent these evil acts from occurring.

“Love is stronger than hate. Peace and Unity will overcome violence. Black Lives Matter.”

Trubisky is a member of the Bears’ social justice committee.
