On Monday morning, CBC Chair Congressman Cedric Richmond (D-LA) sent the NFL a letter urging team owners to consider the stances of protesting Black players in terms of patriotism and combating police brutality.

In the letter, the Congressman Richmond wrote, “For African Americans, it is not about standing, sitting, or kneeling for the National Anthem―it is about unarmed African Americans lying in a grave who were shot and killed by police officers,” adding, “It is also about a justice system that says that encountering a Black person is enough reason for a police officer to fear for his or her life.” Read the full letter here.
