Congressional Black Caucus Chair Issues Statement NFL Protest Controversy

Cedric Richmond, Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, releases a statement on POTUS’s “petty” and “prejudiced” remarks.  Richmond emphasized that after having read the sundry statements by the NFL commissioner and team owners, none of them addressed the core issue of police brutality that is at the heart of the players’ protests.  Richmond also noted that Kaepernick continues to be unemployed, and that none of the statements provided a logical explanation for Kaepernick’s absence from an NFL roster.
