Richard Sherman: “All lives matter,” doesn’t “fully support” Black Lives Matter
SEATTLE, July 28 (UPI) — Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has never been told by his team to tone it down.
In fact, he told ESPN’s The Undefeated Tuesday that the Seahawks have been supportive on how he speaks his mind. When questioned by Domonique Foxworth about issues of race and violence, Sherman offered several thoughtful responses, including his stance on the Black Lives Matter movement.
“It’s hard to formulate an opinion and generalize because they have several different messages,” Sherman told Foxworth. “Some of them are peaceful and understandable and some of them are very radical and hard to support. Any time you see people who are saying, ‘Black Lives Matter,’ and then saying it’s time to kill police, then it is difficult to stand behind that logic. They are generalizing police just like they are asking police not to generalize us. It is very hypocritical. So, in that respect, I find it difficult to fully support that movement.” – READ MORE
