It seems the tides are turning in the Black Lives Matter saga. More and more prominent black Americans are coming out and speaking against the racist and hateful organization.
Some would argue that BLM is not a racist organization, that they are trying to promote equality and equal rights for black Americans. Well that’s a load because we all know that what they’re doing it racist. When you put one race over another, as BLM does, that’s the exact definition of racism. And as that narrative continues to wash over the country, we have people like Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks speaking out against them. Sherman is one of the more outspoken people in the NFL and he routinely fights for what’s right and just in the leageu and in life outside of it.
What he said about BLM and his support for police has us cheering!
Seattle Seahawks star cornerback Richard Sherman weighed in on the tensions between police officers and African-American communities.
In an interview with The Undefeated, Sherman said you don’t want to see anybody killed senselessly, whether it’s black men dying at the hands of police or officers being ambushed.
“It’s frustrating on both sides, because you understand that police officers have a duty and a job,” Sherman said. “They sacrifice a lot to protect and serve. And I understand that some don’t do it the right way. I also understand that people shouldn’t get killed just because of the color of their skin.”
The three-time All-Pro said that everybody is a human being first, and the color of someone’s skin should not matter.
“I stand by what I said that All Lives Matter and that we are human beings,” Sherman said. “I want African-Americans and everybody else treated decently. I want them treated like human beings. And I also want the police treated like human beings. I don’t want police officers just getting knocked off in the street who haven’t done anything wrong.”
“Those are innocent lives.”
Damn straight they are innocent lives! BLM is nothing but a bully organization and Sherman knows it. We need more black athletes and stars coming out against BLM. That’s the only way they will be truly shut down.
We stop BLM, we stop racism.
