In the video, singer Alicia Keys sang “Raise and Sing Every Voice.”
– Known as the Black National Anthem – NFL players protest this summer with images and pictures and wear “Black Lives Matter”. When San Francisco was a member of the 49ers, the league used a video of Copernicus kneeling. This video was released during Thursday season opener
Capernic began to sit, then kneeled during the national anthem in 2016, playing his last game on January 1, 2017, and has yet to be signed by a team.
“What the NFL is doing is half-hearted at best,” Reed tweeted Monday
He added that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was relieved to learn that “it was wrong” as if his mere confession compromised his accepted actions.
Reid said Goodell is using Kick Pernick in the video “to perpetuate systemic tyranny, to legitimize his anti-PR, while simultaneously using anti-fight, continuing to rob Colin of his career.”
“It’s diabolical,” Rede said.
Reed’s comments come as the NFL and other sports leagues seem to come up with racial tensions in America. The NFL, which previously condemned Copernicus’s protests, is now supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. Goodell also told ESPN in June
That he was supporting and encouraging the team to sign support.
On sunday Capernick tweeted in support of the rapper
, Which was to bow to him and was released in March by the Carolina Panthers after playing two se tuos with him.
“While the NFL is campaigning on how to take care of black life, they are still actively blackmailing Eric Reed (@ E_Reid35) to fight for the black community.” “Eric set 2 franchise records last year, and he’s one of the best defensive players in the league.”
Capernick accused the owners of the NFL team of joining him in 2017 to avoid being signed. The NFLA denied any connection but in 2019, They reached a compromise
With Copernicus and Reed.
