Former NFL Star Marshawn Lynch Would Rather See Colin Kaepernick Protest The National Anthem Than 'Put His Hands Up & Get Murdered'

Marshawn Lynch just made a very powerful point in support of Colin Kaepernick.

In the wake of Tulsa police fatally shooting unarmed Terence Crutcher, the Seattle Seahawks alum just perfectly defended the quarterback's decision to peacefully protest the National Anthem.

On Tuesday, the retired NFL star joined Conan O'Brien on his late-night show to literally stand up for the San Francisco 49ers player, poignantly saying:

"With what's going on, I'd really rather see him take a knee, than stand up, put his hands up, and get murdered."

So incredibly well-said, while tragically highlighting the serious police profiling problem throughout our country.

The 30-year-old hopes Colin's movement causes a societal shift across the nation, which will make everyone aware of the racism that still exists, and ultimately end it, adding:

"My take on it is, sh*t's gotta start somewhere. And if that was the starting point, I just hope people open up their eyes to see that there's really a problem going on, and something needs to be done for it to stop."

The ex-running back also called out everyone against the athlete's harmless display:

"And, I mean, if you're really not racist, then you won't see what he's doing as a threat to America, but just addressing a problem that we have."

Colin Kaepernick Says Tulsa Police Officer Should Be In Prison For Killing Terence Crutcher Amidst Continued Death Threats

When will enough be enough?

Colin Kaepernick wasn't the least bit surprised about the backlash he got over his national anthem protest… and sadly, that included receiving death threats.

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback recently revealed he's been targeted by "couple different avenues" since he started sitting, then kneeling, during the national anthem in protest of racial injustice and police brutality in the country.

Speaking to the San Francisco Chronicle on Tuesday, the athlete admitted that he's yet to alert team officials to the threats, explaining:

"To me, if something like that were to happen, you've proved my point. And it will be loud and clear for everyone why it happened. And that would move this movement forward at a greater speed than what it is even now."

We sure hope it doesn't come to that… but he has a point!

Though it's scary that the 28-year-old has to worry about death threats, we were reminded why he's protesting when yet another unarmed black man was shot and killed by an officer in Oklahoma earlier this week.

On top of being devastated by Terence Crutcher's murder, Kaepernick took further issue with the fact that Tulsa Police didn't even treat him like a human being, telling press:

Baltimore Orioles Star Adam Jones Says MLB Players Cannot Protest The National Anthem Because 'Baseball Is A White Man's Sport'

Filed under: BaseballMLBControversySocial Issues

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.

Adam said:

"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.

Lil Wayne Declares There's 'No Such Thing As Racism' — Watch!

no title

Great news, everyone… racism no longer exists!!

At least according to Lil Wayne, who is no stranger to performing in front of a predominately white audience.

Stopping by FS1's Undisputed on Tuesday, the rapper was asked by host Skip Bayless what he takes away from performances in front of a lily white crowd — to which Weezy profoundly responded:

"I thought that was clearly a message that there was no such thing as racism."

Hmmm… we think Zendaya, Colin Kaepernick, and literally most of educated America would disagree!

Wayne later added that he believes millennials aren't racist because "it's not cool to them." We guess he isn't counting frat boys who chant about lynching black people or most Donald Trump supporters?

Further proving how disconnected he is, the Lollipop rapper confirmed he is retired from music over

In these tough times, America needs an unbiased party to justly poke fun at all sides of the political and social divisions in our country.

Thankfully, South Park is back to fill that void, and the Emmy-winning series already has Colin Kaepernick's controversial National Anthem protest in its crosshairs!

In a clip promoting the Comedy Central series' upcoming 10-episode season, our favorite residents sing the National Anthem at a football game in support of Kaepernick's protest of racial injustice, gleefully singing "cops are pigs."
