If white America had respected Colin Kaepernick's right to take a knee (and listened) maybe George Floyd would not have been killed by a knee.

After whiteballing Colin Kaepernick for taking a knee to protest police brutality and racism, Friday NFL Commissioner Rogel Goodell made a complete reversal in releasing a statement that is reverberating inside and outside the sports world.

Goodell released the following statement:

"It has been a difficult time for our country, in particular Black people in our country. First, my condolences to the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and all the families who have endured police brutality. We, the National Football League condemn racism and the systematic oppression of Black people. We the National Football League admit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest. We the National Football League believe Black lives matter.

"I personally protest with you, and want to be part of the much-needed change in this country.

"Without Black players, there would be no National Football League. And the protests around the country are emblematic of the centuries of silence, inequality and oppression of Black players, coaches, fans and staff. We are listening. I am listening, and I will be reaching out to players who have raised their voices and others on how we can improve and go forward for a better and more united NFL family."
