White Browns’ Player Just Ended His Career With Statement About Why He Refuses To Stand For Anthem
The world of sports has lost all its glory in recent years and became another politically engineered platform. Don’t believe us? Check the twitter accounts of most NBA or NFL stars and you’ll see them making political stands every day. They often side with the left, and try to destroy the country which allowed them to live as kings. Although they’re right sometimes, protesting the American anthem won’t bring you any political points.
Protesting for that kind of thing is more of an attempt to stand in the spotlight then a real rebellion. The worst thing is that these athletes are supported by their own teammates and friends who are brainwashed enough to believe the wrong thing. This is exactly the case with Seth DeValve, Cleveland Browns’ tight end. Recently, DeValve chose to stand with his black brothers and boycott our anthem due to the Charlottesville demonstrations.
“Over the past few days, Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long and Seattle Seahawks center Justin Britt, both white NFL players, supported their respective Black teammates protesting during the national anthem by draping an arm over their shoulders. Neither Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr nor his defensive end teammate Khalil Mack protested during the national anthem, but Carr, too, wrapped his arm around Mack’s shoulder, in this case promoting racial solidarity,” one report said.
DeValve took a knee himself, and is the first white NFL player to do so. “We took the opportunity to pray for our country and for the men and women in this country during that time. The USA is the greatest country in the world. It is because it provides opportunities to its citizens that no other country does. The issue is that it doesn’t provide equal opportunity to everybody. And I wanted to support my African-American teammates today who wanted to take a knee. We wanted to draw attention to the fact that there’s things in this country that still need to change,” he said. However, there’s another factor for his behavior – his black wife.
“Just the other day, guys started to talk about it,’ DeValveexplained. “We should come up with something that we can do and try to get as many people involved to show that we support [Eagles safety] Malcolm Jenkins, [Seahawks defensive end] Michael Bennett, other guys around the league that are trying to use their platform and also doing things in the community to try to help and show we all want to try to come together as a nation and do better for ourselves.”
Now, DeValve’s heart might be in the right place, but he’s clearly not aware of the disrespect he’s showing to our country. Yes, we might have done things wrong in the past, but now it’s time to correct them and rally around what’s right. This isn’t the way to fix racism, Seth – you’re only adding more oil to the fire we can’t extinguish.
