Baltimore Orioles Star Adam Jones Says MLB Players Cannot Protest The National Anthem Because 'Baseball Is A White Man's Sport'
Whether you agree with him or not, you have to respect the fact that he's speaking his mind.
In a recent interview with USA Today, Baltimore Orioles star Adam Jones says MLB players don't protest the national anthem because "baseball is a White man's sport." In case you aren't familiar, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick made headlines when he sat during The Star-Spangled Banner.
"We already have two strikes against us already, so you might as well not kick yourself out of the game… In football, you can't kick them out. You need those players. In baseball, they don't need us."
Additionally, the 31-year-old would "never" sit during the national anthem out of respect for family members who served in the military.
However, the outfielder fully supports Kaepernick's decision to protest.
