The 22-year-old McKenney transferred to Juventus from Schalke this summer by renting and buying. McKenney won the favor of Juventus coach Pirlo after joining. The previous two rounds of Serie A represented the team's first games. Since the beginning of this year, McKenney has spoken out for anti-racism activities on many occasions. He once wore an armband printed with slogans supporting African American anti-racism activities in Schalke competitions and publicly criticized US President Trang. Pu is "racist and ignorant".
McKenney said: "In a national team game that I participated in this year, after the game, some fans made me cry imitating monkeys. I returned to my home in Dallas. I was afraid of driving at night because I didn't know. What would happen if I was inspected by the police? The country I represent does not accept my skin color. It must be heartbreaking. When I put on the armband, I felt that it was a responsibility and obligation, first of all as an American People, and secondly, as a black person. I think it is necessary to spread this awareness abroad. I have received a lot of support and resentment from many people."
"Some people say,'You are a player and you should not make a political statement.' I just thought, I don't know how this is a political statement. There is a man who has lost his life. I will not shut up and play football. It’s because some people think I should just focus on playing football without expressing my opinion. I don’t want to be regarded as just a great player, I want to be regarded as a great person. This is what I started trying to do, stay I am imprinted, I love me like this."
