NFL COMMISSIONER: “WE, THE NFL ADMIT, WE WERE WRONG FOR NOT LISTENING TO NFL PLAYERS EARLIER”

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell released a video clip condemning racing and admitting that the NFL was wrong to not listen to the players who were protesting against racial injustice and police brutality against blacks according to the NFL.


“We, the NFL, condemn racism and the systematic oppression of Black People. We, the NFL, admit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the NFL, believe Black Lives Matter. #InspireChange ”

The ongoing protests that are taking place across the country and the world have forced the NFL and many organizations and companies to address the climate that has been created by police brutality against black people and systemic racism in general.

New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees reignited that flame when he stated earlier this week, “I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country.”

He immediately apologized and backtracked as the backlash to his comment was swift and was condemned by his teammates, players around the league and media outlets.
