We need to 'walk with strength and pride': Andy Reid, several NFL players discuss racial injustice

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -In the wake of the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin, several sports teams across the nation have refused to play and have canceled practice. On Wednesday, Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid took a break from talking about Training Camp and gave his thoughts on the recent boycotting.

Do the Chiefs have any comment about the black thug who killed a young college student and her stepfather following a minor fender bender in South Carolina?

It doesn't fit the BLM narrative, so the MSM won't report on it, celebrities will change the subject, there will be no protests of black violence and no one will loot downtown Columbia. But it happened.

In the U.S., 10 unarmed black men were shot by police officers, while 20 unarmed white men were shot in 2019. Unarmed doesn't necessarily mean they weren't trying to take the officer's gun, or choke or beat them. In fact, six of the 10 unarmed black men were later proven by undeniable evidence to be attacking the officer when they were killed. Yet, contrast those figures with about 7,000 black men killed in the U.S. by other black men. One category of deaths brings a lot of money to groveling politicians, Kaepernick, the NACCP, BLM and other groups when it occurs, and the other category doesn't. Like most things in life, follow the money. The white police officer in Minnesota made a lot of people rich when he killed George Floyd. The "blood money" is flowing into the coffers.

Well Coach Andy Reid you have at last pushed me totally away from NFL football. See how long you keep that big salary when it comes down to only black people supporting you.

Go away football. I think you should boycott all the games. That will teach us a lesson. Follow basketballs lead. Don’t be oppressed by the upper class.

What are the figures on black men killing white people? We never hear that number.

Marxists want you all demoralized. Ending professional sports is just one way. Burning down your cities is another.

Just ignore them. Sports will come back but marxists tend not to after they bring skateboards to gun fights.

shot an elderly Italian couple visiting their sons grave. Killed at the cemetery.

Apparently ignorance is a virtue, not only in the media but also in professional sports. Thanks coach Reid for being a perfect butthole, dumass coach. We could not expect better of you and have no intention of supporting you or your team anymore. Now shut up and go away. You don’t have anything positive to offer the world.

The NFL needs to stay out of politics. I have written off the NBA and baseball. Any BLM bull shit and I will go ride a bike, read a book or watch a movie. Not going to preached at by over paid athletes. Sports us suppose to be entertainment only.

In 2007, while the Philadelphia Eagles Coach, Andy Reid's sons were sentenced by a judge in Norristown, Pennsylvania to prison for drug dealing which helps explains Reid's views on law enforcement.

Silvestor orgalthorp said...

Ok ok. I get your point
But look a little deeper here. These athletes are saying that they are protesting “racial injustice “ and that’s fine
But can you not see how useless that stand is when they have NEVER said or done anything about the never ending murders in the city?
Have you ever heard from the chiefs when a child is killed?

When the NFL addresses the problem with their players using drugs, beating their wives and girlfriends and all the other problems within the organization then, and only then, do they have the right to lecture anyone.

NFL lecturing us.......those violent thugs! F-me! Half those players would be in prison if it weren’t for their God given ability. I am sick of seeing BLM thugs and the horseshit that comes with them. Chiefs-shut up, play football, and stop throwing your political opinions at us. Stupid bastards!

As a black person in America you have MORE rights than anyone else. It's a fact. Plus proportionate to your percentage of the population (13 percent) you garner significantly more of the political discourse. If you all didn't vote democrat, it would probably help somewhat.

Thank you 2:18, perfect example

To the overpaid athletes, coaches, owners of sports teams better knock this crap off or you $$$$$$ will dry up!

People are tired of using sports as a vehicle to protest. I'm done with the nba, after seeing that mlb players just walked off tonight I'm done with them. If the NFL does the same thing I'm done!

I quit watching the NFL when Kaperdick started his crap and players started kneeling. When the Chiefs started their rise I got back on the bandwagon and glad I'm did. Never thought I'd see a Chiefs Superbowl!!

Don't screw it up!

These athletes are paid to perform and if they want to do all the social media stuff go for it!! DON'T take it to your respective fields of play.

Yes, I'm tired of seeing police shootings in general, but, I'm equally or more disturbed about politicians, so call celebrities, athletes ignoring the deaths of innocent people at the hands of whites, blacks, hispanics, asians and every other race.

And where is the outrage of the racism that blacks have towards whites and other races!! Where is it!!! You want to ignore it, ride with a cop, go to a court room and see where the racism is at.

Get a grip people you, the athlete are furthering racial divide not fixing it!! Shameful!!

Andy Reid and his band of NFL thugs have NO room to be criticizing others about anything. Pro-athletes and other celebrities need to focus on their careers and not on pontificating to those they feel superior to. You’re paid to entertain, not to lecture.

Last time I checked the NFL didn’t pay any of us a dime to watch them. Gosh, I thought we were their customers. That’s right, they’re entitled. Shame on me, I forgot we do all owe them a living.

^^ Andy Reid's sons were convicted and imprisoned in 2007 for being drug dealers in Philadelphia. They did other bad things. Reid has a hard-on for the police every since. Kevin Keitzman was fired for being right about Reid.

Hey Andy! And Mahomes!

Look at the BLM website. They are against the nuclear family.
BLM is a terrorist organization... if they are against family.

Go ahead and win games and play.
Most of us are fed up with NBA and won’t watch another game. Don’t care. They support China. LJ is a commie supporter.
Many of us a swearing off baseball. Fuck them.
Baseball can not survive without fans. Underground movements to have people never support sports again... not baseball or NBA.

Black National Anthem divides and serves segregation.

Good luck this year.

Let's just stop all pro sports. The fun has been sucked out of them. Let these athletes get regular jobs like the rest of us and similar paychecks. It will give us all more time to get more important things done.

TO ALL OF YALL BITCHING ABOUT “they never talk about this black person killing somebody” — it’s not about the color of the killer’s skin. It’s the fact that the police department, a department that’s supposed to protect its community, killed someone without reason, and got to walk away an “innocent” man. In the majority of the cases you are mentioning, the perpetrator was caught and sentenced promptly, or was manhunted.
