D. L. Hughley is demanding action of some legends of the NFL – calling Jerry Rice, Ray Lewis and others who condemned Colin Kaepernick … and wondering why they are not so upset by shooting Terence Crutcher.
Of course, Crutcher is the 40-year-old black man was shot by a white police officer in Tulsa, while their hands were raised and that seemed to give up.
“All people of Jerry Rice Jason Whitlock Ray Lewis Rodney Harrison was so upset by Colin Kaepernick not standing, I wish you all were so upset by Terence Crutcher get shot down when they were about Colin Kaepernick not standing up “Hughley said.
For reference, here are the previous statements of the legends of the NFL do about Kaepernick:
Jerry Rice – “Every life matters so much happening in this world today Can we all just get along Colin, I respect your position but not the lack of respect for the flag ..!”.
Ray Lewis -. “Listen understand what you’re trying to do, but I understand, take the flag out of it I have uncles, I have brothers, to enter the army, saying that I would never see you again. To understand that I will always respect that part what should be our patriotism.
And that’s the side I think if Colin really takes a step back, to effect change, to make a real change in what he is trying to say, if you do not have a real solution, if it is not seen as a true activist, to enter hoods and do these things on a daily basis and not just jump in and just protest outside a thing because you’re sick of it – we’ve been sick of racism for more than 400 years. ”
Rodney Harrison – “I think your heart is in the right place, I just think you do it the wrong way if he really wants to make the change, he sat his ass down [for the song], that will not change. that will make people very upset and he has to understand that. ”
“And I say this, I am a black man and Colin Kaepernick -. He is not black can not understand what I face and what other young black people black face, or people of color face, into a whole. only [day] base.
When you walk into a grocery store, and you may have $ 2,000 or $ 3,000 in your pocket and go in a Foot Locker and is watching you like to steal something. I do not think facing that kind of thing. “
