New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees issued a humiliating, groveling apology on Thursday for saying he "will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States."
From Yahoo News on Wednesday:
BREES: "I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country. Let me just tell what I see or what I feel when the national anthem is played and when I look at the flag of the United States. I envision my two grandfathers, who fought for this country during World War II, one in the Army and one in the Marine Corp. Both risking their lives to protect our country and to try to make our country and this world a better place. So every time I stand with my hand over my heart looking at that flag and singing the national anthem, thatís what I think about. And in many cases, that brings me to tears, thinking about all that has been sacrificed. Not just those in the military, but for that matter, those throughout the civil rights movements of the '60s, and all that has been endured by so many people up until this point. And is everything right with our country right now? No, it is not. We still have a long way to go. But I think what you do by standing there and showing respect to the flag with your hand over your heart, is it shows unity. It shows that we are all in this together, we can all do better and that we are all part of the solution."Brees kneeled before the mob one day later in a statement posted to Instagram:
I would like to apologize to my friends, teammates, the City of New Orleans, the black community, NFL community and anyone I hurt with my comments yesterday. In speaking with some of you, it breaks my heart to know the pain I have caused.What is this if not an act of pure, ritual humiliation?
Are struggle sessions like these examples of all that "white privilege" and "systemic white supremacy" we've been told so much about?
