A black tie on which 12 names were stitched in gold. Greg Gunn, Tamir Rice, Akai Gurley, Paul O’Neal, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, Walter Scott, Sandra Bland, Akiel Denkins, Alton Sterling, Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin. Each of these people was either killed by police, or died in police custody. In Canton, Ohio, last week, retired wide receiver Randy Moss honored them all on the accessory that he wore with his gold jacket during his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. In the wake of the NFL’s apparent blackballing of Colin Kaepernick, and the league’s new national anthem policy, this was a huge statement, and it’s from one of the greatest football players of all time. In an exclusive interview with The Undefeated senior NFL writer Jason Reid, Moss opened up about his action at the Hall of Fame, his frustration about the nation’s widening racial divide and his desire to be part of the solution. “All of this hate mail I’m getting for wearing a tie and talking about the truth,” Moss said. “But I can handle it because I’ve been dealing with racism my whole life.”
