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

no title

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.

You don't know his name, but maybe now you should: Kevin Harlan is truly a national treasure for this.

Harlan, a television and radio play-by-play announcer for NFL football and other sports, was doing the Westwood One radio broadcast for last night's Monday Night Football game between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams when a moment came and vaulted him into viral fame.

Early in the fourth quarter of the game, with San Francisco leading 21-0, a fan ran out on to the field.

Now on TV, when this happens, the show's producers will cut away from the action and the broadcasters will talk about the game — the thought being that, hey, if they don't talk about it, then other fans won't be encouraged to do it.

But on his radio show last night, Harlan decided

Since Colin first protested the anthem in order to raise social awareness for minorities, other players in the league have come forward to join in the fight, and on Sunday a few Miami Dolphins players followed suit.

Well this was a bit of a problem for some people, particularly Upton as it was also 9/11 yesterday and the blonde beauty was NOT happy about the protesting players as she took to Twitter to share:

From sports to politics!

Colin Kaepernick may not receive a lot of press for his play this year, but his national anthem protest sure is getting people talking!

The San Francisco 49ers player has received a lot of flak for not standing during the national anthem to bring attention to police brutality and racial inequality.

The 28-year-old's actions even sparked a scathing response from Donald Trump and more recently, some support from President Barack Obama — something Ted Cruz is NOT happy about!

TMZ recently caught up with Cruz and inquired about Colin's decision to sit. Presumably happy anyone wants to talk to him at all, the 45-year-old former Presidential candidate took the opportunity to rant about the NFL star's actions:

This is a curious decision put forth by an organization sworn to protect and serve…

The Santa Clara Police Officers Association is extremely upset with San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, after his refusal to stand for the national anthem came along with an important message that included thoughts about police brutality.

The association, which sent a letter to the NFL team in response to Kaepernick's infamous protest gesture last week, is now saying that some of their officers might stop working the team's games on Sundays, because they don't like what the football player said.

The statement, obtained by media members after it was sent to the team, said in part:
