So, the NFL has put out a statement read by the coward Roger Goodell that reads in part “We, the NFL, admit we were wrong for not listening to the NFL players earlier…We, the NFL believe Black Lives Matter.”
 
Now black lives matter? Black lives did not matter when Colin Kaepernick first
put his knee down in protest for police brutality and social injustice against black people. Now black lives matter after we have had to watch the video of George Floyd being murdered by Minneapolis police officers holding him down while he cried out for his mother and screamed “I can’t breathe.”
 
Did the NFL need more black people to get killed to finally get it? Yeah that was
it – the number of blacks before was not that big of a deal.
So, they partly mattered then but NOW they matter. The protesting we did years ago did not bother you Roger. But now the world is on fire because black people are tired of being treated like second class citizens in a country our ancestors built 
 
NOW we matter.
 
So now you understand the importance of black lives even though the NFL has
been 70% black for a while. Those black lives that suit up every Sunday have
made you Roger and the NFL filthy stinking rich. Those same black lives if they
were not wearing their football uniforms would just be another black man for
either the police to attack and kill or Karen to whine about and then threaten to callthe police on them.
 
It is insulting and tone deaf and you, Drew Brees and anyone else who wants to
talk about all lives matter and now you get how bad racism really is needs to shut the hell up. You want kudos for finally recognizing racism and black lives after you vilified Colin Kaepernick and blackballed his black life out of the NFL – nah
