After weeks of protests against the death of George Floyd, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell admitted that the league was wrong to fail to support players protesting police brutality and racial injustice. The admission, while not explicitly recognizing the efforts of Colin Kaepernick, followed weeks of protests against the death of George Floyd and internal pressure from players – who called out the failures of one of their own, white New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, for failing to understand the meaning of the protests that started in 2016. On this episode of Into America, host Trymaine Lee sits down with NFL wide receiver Brandon Marshall to discuss this moment of protest and what happens when politics and sports collide.
