Taylor was shot eight times and killed by police officers who entered her home in Kentucky in March. Her family have brought legal proceedings against the police force.
Her case is one of several which has been highlighted by worldwide anti-racism protests and the Black Lives Matter movement, of which Hamilton is a prominent supporter.
Hamilton has previously worn a Black Lives Matter T-shirt during the sport’s pre-race ‘end racism’ observance. Asked yesterday why he had made the change, Hamilton said: “It’s not much of a change, it’s still fighting the same thing.
“It took me a long time to get that shirt. I’ve been wanting to wear that and bring awareness to the fact that there’s people that have been killed on the street and there’s someone that got killed in her own house – they’re in the wrong house and those guys are still walking free.
“We can’t rest, we have to continue to raise awareness with it.”
