Why are they unhappy? You’re avoiding the root of the problem. Why are these white Americans mad that a black man who was a star NFL player kept out of the NFL for using his platform to give a voice to oppressed people who look like him received support from a brand? See, white Americans from everywhere love black men when they are bouncing balls are running through end zones. But as soon as they open their mouth to say, “hey, people who look like me are suffering,” a portion of those white Americans, specifically the ones foolish enough to burn their own $100–300 apparel, show their true feelings about black men. Why are we even having this conversation? What’s all this about? It’s simple: some white Americans can’t let a black American protest their own murder and oppression. Go ask white Americans why we’re having this conversation, not the black Americans. We know damn well why we’re having this conversation!
