NFL Quarterback Drew Brees Directly Calls Out Trump Over Systematic Racism, Says “We Must Stop Talking About The Flag”.
Brees and the NFL as a whole came under quite a bit of fire recently when the quarterback made a comment about Colin Kaepernick’s movement of kneeling in peaceful protest as being “disrespectful” of the American flag. As expected, Donald Trump, no doubt from the safety of his bunker, just couldn’t resist the urge to tweet out his support of Brees’ comments, but quickly found himself upset with the NFL star when Brees issued an apology for his statement, ultimately rage tweeting, “NO KNEELING!”
Brees’ statement, directed at the president, comes on the heels of a historic apology from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on behalf of the entire league.
“We, the National Football League, condemn racism and the systematic oppression of black people. We, the National Football League, admit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier, and encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the National Football League, believe Black Lives Matter.”
