Numerous black athletes including Jerry Rice, Ray Lewis, and Shaq, all condemned Colin Kaepernick in his protest of refusing to stand for the national anthem in light of the oppression, inequality, racism, and police brutality against black people.  D.L. Hughley is now demanding action from these legendary athletes in light of the shooting death of Terence Crutcher.

Crutcher is the 40-year old black man who was shot by a white police officer in Tulsa while his hands were raised and he appeared to be surrendering.  Hughley is asking why they’re not as upset about the shooting of this innocent man who simply had car trouble and lost his life.

“All the people from Jerry Rice to Jason Whitlock to Ray Lewis to Rodney Harrison who was so upset about Colin Kaepernick not standing up, I wish all of them were just as upset about Terence Crutcher getting shot down as they were about Colin Kaepernick not standing up,” Hughley said.

For reference, here are the previous statements the NFL legends made about Kaepernick:

Jerry Rice — “All lives matter. So much going on in this world today. Can we all just get along! Colin, I respect your stance but don’t disrespect the Flag.”

Ray Lewis — “Listen I understand what you’re trying to do, but understand, take the flag out of it. I have uncles, I’ve got brothers, going into the military, that said I will never see you again. To understand that I will always respect that part of what our patriotism should be. And that’s the side that I think if Colin just really steps back, to effect change, to effect true change in what he’s trying to say, if you don’t have a real solution, if you ain’t seen as a true activist, to go into hoods and do these things on a daily basis and not just jump up and just protest off this one thing because you’re sick of it — we’ve been sick of racism for 400-plus years.”
