Just like many others, Brandon Marshall is wondering why the people who were so vocal against the peaceful protests are now silent after the shooting death of an unarmed black man.  Many people spoke out against the Denver Broncos linebacker after he joined Colin Kaepernick in kneeling during the national anthem; Marshall even lost two endorsement deals.  But now with the death of Terence Crutcher, those same people now have nothing to say.

“One thing I have an issue with is people are really, extremely [ticked] off and mad about us kneeling and protesting peacefully. How come they don’t have that same type of anger toward the situations that are going on? I think everybody needs to check themselves,” he told The Denver Post on Tuesday.

Marshall made his comments while at a local elementary school, where he addressed students about the importance of attending school. He was asked by the newspaper about the shooting of 40-year-old Terence Crutcher in Tulsa last week.

“It just lets me know that we have a long way to go as people,” Marshall told the newspaper. “I don’t want to go as far as to say people care more about the flag than their fellow man, but it seems like it.”
