NFL controversy has escalated exponentially as Michael Bennett and others demand cooperation during the month of November.
National anthem protesting has been going on since Colin Kaepernick introduced the idea last season but a resolution is nowhere in sight. Rather than acknowledging the fact that their fans are turning away in droves, NFL players wish to make these disrespectful actions a yearly occurrence that is openly recognized by fans and players alike.
Michael Bennett , along with other players, is calling for the month of November to be an official month for protesting oppression that will be recognized nationwide. Why should fans honor this request when players weren’t willing to stop during Veterans Day weekend despite a nationwide request?
Bennett was joined with several other protesting players in their demand that the entire month of November to be recognized officially by the NFL as a month to protest police officers and “oppression” that blacks face living in our country.
Freedom Daily reported:
A memo sent to the NFL demanding that they turn November into an “activism awareness month” to protest police in America is being led by Seattle Seahawks’ Michael Bennett, Philadelphia Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins, Eagles’ Torrey Smith and former NFL player Anquan Boldin. All these players have been very vocal with their protests all year, with Bennett swearing during the preseason to continue Colin Kaepernick’s protesting “legacy.”
