Friday Roger Goodell announced a reversal of the NFL policy on player protests. His remarks came after he was recognized for showing insincerity regarding the controversial deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery. In the past the NFL management has gone to great lengths to prevent players from voicing the truth about racism in sports and law enforcement.
|“We, the National Football League, condemn racism and |
the systematic oppression of black people,” Goodell said.
“We, the National Football League, admit we were
wrong for not listening to the NFL players earlier and
encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest,”
|“We, the National Football League, believe black lives|
matter. I personally protest with you and want to be
part of the much needed change in this country.
Without black players there would be no National
Football League. And the protests around the
country are emblematic of the centuries of silence,
inequality and oppression of black players,
coaches, fans and staff.”
Goodell’s statement was made in response to A CALL by prominent black NFL players. These courageous individuals include Saquon Barkly, Tyrann Mathieu, DeAndre Hopkins, Odell Beckham Jr., Patrick Mahomes, Ezekiel Elliott, Chase Young, and Deshaun Watson. The question is why was racial discrimination okay until now but no longer. The answer is public pressure.
