There are people in this world that in times of crisis you just do not want to hear from.
It’s like when following the death of a family member how it seems sometimes there is always that person that for whatever reason wants to pour their heart out concerning the bad things that this person did while they were alive.
That is the type of person that isn’t helping. We don’t need people that are not helping.
Controversial ex-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick broke his silence on the increasingly violent riots occurring in Minneapolis on Thursday.
The riots were in response to the death of George Floyd on Monday.
While in police custody, Floyd was seen telling police that he could not breathe as an officer knelt on his neck during the arrest and kept his knee there for several minutes after Floyd had stopped moving.
Beginning on Wednesday, the riots became more and more violent, with protesters looting stores and setting buildings on fire.
Additionally, during the riots, a man was shot dead outside of a Minneapolis pawnshop, according to the New York Post.
In a Twitter post, Kaepernick argued that the violent rioters have a right to “fight back.”
“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,” Kaepernick wrote.
“We have the right to fight back! Rest in Power George Floyd.”
Kaepernick isn’t the only celebrity defending the rioters.
