Actress and comedian Amy Schumer has questioned the alleged double Standard of all the white players in NFL for saying they are team mates with their fellow coloured NFL players, yet they have refused to join the movement for equality and put an end to Police brutality against minority blacks in America.
Amy Schumer who put up a post on her social media page a few hours ago, said she does not understand why the NLF white players are not kneeling with their blacks counterparts for a just society.
The photo on her Instagram page shows her with a giant glass of wine, as she praised Rihanna for turning down a half time performance to support the movement. She also appealed to Maroon5 to follow suit and dump their performance, so to send a stronger message to the Government of President Trump and NFL. She said:
“Friday thought. I wonder why more white players aren’t kneeling. Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders.
Why not kneel next to your brothers? Otherwise how are you not complicit? I think it would be cool if @maroon5 backed out of super bowl like @badgalriri Did. I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year.
I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all i got. Hitting the nfl with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them. I know opposing the nfl is like opposing the nra. Very tough, but don’t you want to be proud of how you’re living?
Stand up for your brothers and sisters of color. And the hottest thing a guy can do is get down on one knee. Not to propose but to reject the treatment of his teammates by this country.
Anyone who says its disrespectful to our military please read up on the fact that a lot of veterans are proud of what @kaepernick7 is doing and fully support him. What are your thoughts?”
