“In the same year that we experienced about 259 police officer shootings of blacks in 2015, there were 6,000 black lives lost to murders from black people, Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill said on Fox News.
Violence against all people matters, but if the subject is saving black lives, protesters should talk about black-on-black violence. Hill said he supports players’ right to protest but questions their decision to protest during the National Anthem at such a divided moment in the country.
Hill said unjustified police shootings are rare.
Will NFL players seize this opportunity to make everyone aware of the violence blacks perpetrate against other blacks, especially in urban areas with NFL franchises?
