Colin Kaepernick Responds to George Floyd Killing: “We Have the Right to Fight Back”

Colin Kaepernick, whose stance against police brutality and racial injustice is what many suspect has kept him out of the NFL, has made a statement regarding the police killing of George Floyd according to Fox 5 NY

The embattled former NFL quarterback made a statement about the killing on his Twitter account. “When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction. The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance.

Last week, in an eerily similar situation to the one that led to the death of Eric Garner in New York City, a black man in Minneapolis identified as George Floyd died after telling a white police officer that he couldn’t breathe as the officer’s knee was on his neck.

In an Instagram post earlier this week, Los Angeles Lakers player, LeBron James posted am image to remind people of why Kaepernick fought for racial injustice.
