Will Detroit Lions Protest Of Jacob Blake Shooting Inspire More NFL Protests?

In the aftermath of ANOTHER police shooting of an unarmed Black man, the Detroit Lions canceled practice on Tuesday.

In the aftermath of ANOTHER police shooting of an unarmed Black man, the Detroit Lions canceled practice on Tuesday in protest of the callous Jacob Blake shooting in Wisconsin. 

Captured in ANOTHER disturbing execution video, Blake, a 29-year-old Black man was shot seven times in the back by Kenosha police as he tried to enter an SUV on Sunday night, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down.

The cops, so callous and thirsty for blood, didn’t care that the unarmed Blake’s 3, 5 and 8-year-old sons were in the car. Those boys have been indoctrinated and introduced to the systemic racism that will plague them throughout their lives.  

Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia said: “I didn’t feel right about going into practice and running some football drills without talking to my team.” 

The players were obviously affected by the latest murder of an innocent Black man by police and three hours after practice was scheduled to start, the entire team gathered in the driveway of Allen Park headquarters to announce to the world why they wouldn’t be practicing 

The world can’t go on,” they wrote on one side of a whiteboard. “We won’t be silent,” is what the other side said.

Will this spark more protests in the NFL?
