NFL players don’t often take time to write insightful commentary about their feelings on Facebook, but when New Orleans Saints player Benjamin Watson did it, people took notice.
The 33-year-old player wrote the post on his page after Monday night’s game against the Baltimore Ravens and it didn’t take long to spread around social media. See why it touched a nerve with so many:
At some point while I was playing or preparing to play Monday Night Football, the news broke about the Ferguson Decision. After trying to figure out how I felt, I decided to write it down. Here are my thoughts:
I’M ANGRY because the stories of injustice that have been passed down for generations seem to be continuing before our very eyes.
I’M FRUSTRATED, because pop culture, music and movies glorify these types of police citizen altercations and promote an invincible attitude that continues to get young men killed in real life, away from safety movie sets and music studios.
