Ricketts: 'It's a fight we've been fighting for a long time'

Whitecaps FC striker Tosaint Ricketts shares his thoughts after he and the 'Caps knelt in solidarity with the Black community and protesters demonstrating against institutional racism. 

"It's a fight we've been fighting for a long time, and it's time for change. It starts with us. We have a platform where our voices can be heard, and moments where a team comes together, people from all around the world, different cultures, different races, different nationalities, different beliefs, different religions, we can collectively be one, and accomplish goals. It means a lot."
