What Happened? Drew Brees says he does not and will never support of kneeling during the national anthem as a form of protest against racial injustice in the USA. Here is a tweet about his interview on Yahoo sports:
Highlight: @readdanwrite asks @drewbrees what the star NFL quarterback thinks about "players kneeling again when the NFL season starts."@drewbrees: “I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country.”

But then he apologized. Why? He got instant condemnation from across the board, including black players in his own team. Was Drew Brees right? Will being forced to apologize cause other players into silence? Is this a good thing to equate any opposition to kneeling during the anthem as a form of protest with racism? Think about this: should all Americans now be forced to support the liberal perspective of all our challenges? This is a real question. If we continue this, we are worse that the perpetuators of injustice.
We must remember that just last month, Drew Brees was celebrated for giving back to New Orleans, etc.
Is Drew Brees just wrong or is he just being silence by an angry mob? This is what Killer Mike thinks about all this during his appearance on the Fox Sports show Undisputed.
