As the season started some players followed Kaepernick’s footprints and protested the National Anthem. While they decided to sit during the anthem some even took protest one step further.
Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett celebrated with a Black Power salute.
Bennett sacked a quarterback, Brian Hoyer who plays the old position of Kaepernick, 49 quarterback.
The All Black Media also saw his actions as pro-Black Power.
Bennett recently said that he was a victim of racial profiling, a Las Vegas police officers held him to the ground and yelled at him that they “blow (his) f*****g head off,” while holding a gun to his head.
Anyhow, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Undersheriff Kevin McMahill has a different story, they were searching for an active soother at the Cromwell casino when Bennett was hiding behind a gaming machine.
“Once Bennett was in the officer’s view, he quickly ran out the south door, jumped over a wall onto Flamingo Road East of Las Vegas Boulevard into traffic,” McMahill said.
Bennett was approached by the police, not because of the color of his skin, but because he was acting suspiciously.
Even if Bennett is right and he really was a victim of racially profiling, there are many ways of demanding justice than encouraging violence, which is what the “Black Power” movement was based on through the Black Panther Party.
It doesn’t matter if you are black or white, promoting one race as the powerful one through violent measures is a disgrace to our nation and everything it stands for.
