Unpacking Roger Goodell’s Statement on the Death of George Floyd

Goodell statement on George Floyd

Much of America recently witnessed the cold-blooded murder of George Floyd by a police officer sworn to serve and protect. As such we are reminded of the words of Colin Kaepernick and why he refused to stand for the national anthem four years ago.
