D.L. Hughley Has a Heartfelt Reaction In Response to Trump Implying Athletes Who Kneel Should Leave the Country

A little Note From The GED Section: I hope one day these young men who risk their minds and bodies for America’s entertainment realize their power

Posted by D.L. Hughley on Thursday, May 24, 2018

After a controversial debate on whether or not football players should be allowed to kneel or protest during the national anthem, the National Football League announced its new policy on Wednesday that demands players stand or remain in the locker room or face a fine. President Trump praised the league, but others were not in favor of the new rule including celebrity comedian D.L. Hughley.

During the radio personality’s regular segment of “A little note from the GED section”, he addressed President’s Trump biased remarks and Black player’s positions regarding the new rule.

“The very reason that NFL athletes are protesting because the very physical attributes that you use to get you drafted… are the very things that frighten people and things escalate,” Hughley said.

“President Trump said something crazy today. He said ‘why are they even here?’ if they don’t want to stand for the national anthem,” the actor said.

Hughley went onto say that Trump along with other football officials do not want Black athletes to protest against the national anthem that was written based on the intent of “killing men who looked just like them.” He adds why the Black community needs football players to protest because of the influence they have over people to possibly create change.

“I hope that one day these young Black men who risk their minds and bodies to entertain America understand their power… If they were united they would understand their power, it’s a $9 billion industry and if they didn’t have Black people, they would have rugby.”
