Martin spoke with the Houston Chronicle about being fed up with what's happening to people like Floyd, a black man originally from Third Ward in Houston who died at the hands of a white Minneapolis police officer last week.

Floyd's death has sparked protests across the world, from Houston to New Zealand. 

J.J. Watt was the first Texans player to speak publicly about Floyd's death, but many of them, and athletes all over, have been active on social media voicing their frustration.

If hating the KKK loses me fans, then I hope I lose them.

Texans linebacker Peter Kalambayi also attended the march. 

“Change the landscape of the world — how we think, how we proceed going forward, the days of yesterday, the days before this, the times we remember,” Martin told the Chronicle. “After this, things won’t be the same.

“The reality is that this has been going on in the black community and to people of color for far too long. For generations growing up as a young African-American man, you’ve been afraid of police officers because of what your parents tell you and how to proceed. For that to be the case with a public servant, it’s ridiculous. That shouldn’t be the case. You shouldn’t have to have that conversation with your children. I pray that I don’t have to have that conversation with my children one day in the future.”
