Former Green Bay Packers Legend Brett Favre refused to condemn players who kneel for the national anthem in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement during a recent interview with USA Today.
When pressed Favre claimed that ultimately there was ‘no right answer’ to the kneeling controversy.
As The Daily Wire reports:
“I know from being in an NFL locker room for 20 years, regardless of race, background, money you grew up with, we were all brothers it didn’t matter,” Favre said on Monday. “Guys got along great. Will that be the same (with kneeling scenario)? I don’t know. If one guy chooses to stand for his cause and another guy chooses to kneel for his cause, is one right and the other wrong? I don’t believe so. We tend to be fixed on highs.”
Favre added that, as a white man, it was not his place to judge the protests of black NFL players.
“I don’t know what it’s like to be Black. It’s not for me to say what’s right and what’s wrong. I do know we should all be treated equal. If you can’t do that, you shouldn’t be in America,” he asserted.
“There’s no right answer,” he added. “Other than, the right answer is that we all get along. It seems like the more people try the more damage is done.”
