Rodney Harrison has apologized after criticizing Colin Kaepernick and his refusal to stand for the national anthem while suggesting that the QB isn't black and doesn't understand racism. - From ESPN
What I'm saying his heart is in the right place, but even what he's doing, he still doesn't understand the injustices that we face as a black man or people of color, that's what I'm saying.
And people say, well maybe what he's standing for is bigger than him winning the job, or something like that.
"Yes, he's guaranteed $11 million; well, what happened to all this Colin Kaepernick talk when he was making $300,000?
"If I'm him and I feel strongly about something, I call a players-only meeting, I get in front of the team and say, 'Hey guys, this is what my thoughts are, you know, because I know there are a lot of kind of backdoor conversations, a lot of side conversations' and stuff like that.
And most guys understand what he's doing; it's like his heart and his intentions are good, but I don't think it's the right time right now, because it's the football season, they've got a lot of positive things going, why bring something like this to the forefront?
