Colin Kaepernick has broken his silence on the unfortunate death of George Floyd. Kaepernick took to Twitter on Thursday afternoon to express his thoughts and views on the civil unrest in Minnesota.
“When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction,” Kap wrote. “The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance.”
Kaepernick’s comments on Thursday followed widespread revulsion throughout the sports world, with several prominent figures including LeBron James voicing their disgust at Floyd’s killing.
Since Floyd’s death, the Four officers involved were fired. The Justice Department announced earlier Thursday it would launch an investigation into the matter.
Kapernick is simlpy speaking his truth and at the end of the day, America, as a nation, needs to look in the mirror and figure out when is it ever ok for police brutality to go unpunished?
