It's Past Time For Drew Brees To Understand The Point Of Kneeling
Drew Brees does not have a history of concussions, which while fortunate, also leaves us completely puzzled as to what mental misfiring occurred that would cause him to go on TV (or whatever Yahoo! Finance broadcasts to) and say this:
It's incredible to me that anyone still believes Colin Kaepernick's protests where about disrespecting the flag as if Kaepernick had some sort of secret vendetta against Betsy Ross. (The stars are too tiny, dammit!) Kaepernick's kneeling is and has always clearly been about the systematic oppression of Black People and the argument that this protest is somehow dishonorable to the military, in a country where the military has literally fought for our right to protest, feels asinine. (Not to mention the fact that Kaepernick got the idea of kneeling rather than sitting from a Green Beret.)
So what are the thoughts and feelings of Brees' teammates and fellow players around the league? It turns out they're not happy.
But it's not just football. Brees mess this up so bad that even LeBron James decided to weigh in.
... Brees offered a token apology with a cheap stock photo literally called "Black and White Human Hands - Handshake Against Racism."
