This looks like and admission that the kneeling players are still acting on the 'hands up, don't shoot' lie
NY Times Op-ed:
They are still picking the wrong time and place for their demonstration and they are harming their own credibility by still pushing the police violence meme. Most black men who meet violent ends do so at the hands of another black man and not the police. The "hand up, don't shoot" lie was exposed by the Obama justice department yet the players still act as if it is credible.
