Palestinian siblings Dia Awaja, right, 4, and Zikrayat, 2, left, play on one of the tents which comprise the makeshift structures that house their family, in Beit Lahiya, northern Gaza Strip, Thursday, June 10, 2010. The Awajas are among thousands of families whose houses were destroyed during Israel's three-week military offensive against Hamas-ruled Gaza, launched in December 2008 with the aim of halting Hamas rocket attacks. An Israeli forces bulldozer flattened the Awajas' house and as the family tried to flee, bullets the siblings father Kamal, mother Wafa, and their 8-year-old brother Ibrahim, who bled to death in the street.

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James on Monday night during pregame warmups wore an “I can’t breathe” T-shirt, referring to Eric Garner, who died after a New York police officer placed him in a chokehold during an arrest for selling loose cigarettes. The shirt, one of several featuring the slogan that have been seen around the league in recent days after a grand jury declined to indict the officer last week, is just one in a long history of political statements made by athletes on the playing field.
