Congressional Black Caucus Chair Pens Open Letter to POTUS

Representative Richmond follows up his September 25, 2017 statement with a letter to POTUS.  The letter expresses Richmond’s “utter disgust” with POTUS’s handling of race relations in general, and the NFL player protests in particular.  Richmond castigated POTUS for being divisive, asserting that POTUS lacks empathy for the history and policies that lead Colin Kaepernick to kneel in the first place.  In an interview, Richmond further stated “[t]ime will tell that kneeling NFL players are courageous patriots for this country.”
