Drew Brees recula y se disculpa por criticar las protestas contra el racismo

NUEVA ORLEANS, Luisiana.- Drew Brees, mariscal de campo de los New Orleans Saints, reculó y ofreció disculpas luego de que sus críticas a las protestas contra el racismo encendieran la polémica entre sus colegas de la NFL, todo esto entre los disturbios generados por la muerte de George Floyd.

"Quisiera ofrecer una disculpa a mis amigos, compañeros, a la ciudad de Nueva Orleans, a la comunidad afroamericana, a los fans de la NFL y a cualquiera que haya ofendido con mis comentarios. Hablé con algunos de ustedes y me rompe el corazón saber el dolor que causé", publicó en su cuenta de Instagram.

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I would like to apologize to my friends, teammates, the City of New Orleans, the black community, NFL community and anyone I hurt with my comments yesterday. In speaking with some of you, it breaks my heart to know the pain I have caused. In an attempt to talk about respect, unity, and solidarity centered around the American flag and the national anthem, I made comments that were insensitive and completely missed the mark on the issues we are facing right now as a country. They lacked awareness and any type of compassion or empathy. Instead, those words have become divisive and hurtful and have misled people into believing that somehow I am an enemy. This could not be further from the truth, and is not an accurate reflection of my heart or my character. This is where I stand: I stand with the black community in the fight against systemic racial injustice and police brutality and support the creation of real policy change that will make a difference. I condemn the years of oppression that have taken place throughout our black communities and still exists today. I acknowledge that we as Americans, including myself, have not done enough to fight for that equality or to truly understand the struggles and plight of the black community. I recognize that I am part of the solution and can be a leader for the black community in this movement. I will never know what it’s like to be a black man or raise black children in America but I will work every day to put myself in those shoes and fight for what is right. I have ALWAYS been an ally, never an enemy. I am sick about the way my comments were perceived yesterday, but I take full responsibility and accountability. I recognize that I should do less talking and more listening...and when the black community is talking about their pain, we all need to listen. For that, I am very sorry and I ask your forgiveness.

El egresado de la Universidad de Purdue añadió que condena la opresión que sufren las comunidades afroamericanas, por lo que está a favor de su lucha contra las injusticias raciales y la brutalidad policíaca.

PEDIR RESPETO A LA BANDERA DE EE.UU., EL DETONANTE

Brees, desató una gran polémica este miércoles en redes sociales al decir que se opondría a que jugadores de la NFL volvieran a protestar hincando la rodilla durante el himno, por considerarlo una "falta de respeto a la bandera".

En el contexto de la ola de indignación nacional por el crimen del afroamericano George Floyd a manos de policías de Minneapolis, compañeros de la NFL y otras figuras del deporte como LeBron James explotaron contra las declaraciones del veterano mariscal de campo.

En las manifestaciones, que se siguen extendiendo más de una semana después del crimen, se ha reivindicando la figura de Colin Kaepernick, el mariscal de campo que en 2016 comenzó a colocar una rodilla en el suelo durante el himno previo a los partidos como gesto contra el racismo y la brutalidad policial contra los afroamericanos.
