Drew Brees seemingly switches sides and slams Trump

Just days after the player seemed like he was on the same side as Donald Trump as far as racism goes, Drew Brees has shifted his stance.

Earlier the player had come under intense fire from all quarters because of his comment that he ‘would never agree with someone disrespecting the flag’. He has since gone on to apologize multiple times.

Trump however had other thoughts about Drew’s apologies and posted them on twitter, “I am a big fan of Drew Brees. I think he’s truly one of the greatest quarterbacks, but he should not have taken back his original stance on honoring our magnificent American Flag. OLD GLORY is to be revered, cherished, and flown high…We should be standing up straight and tall, ideally with a salute, or a hand on heart. There are other things you can protest, but not our Great American Flag – NO KNEELING!”

Brees however directly addressed Trump with his own push-back, explaining, “Through my ongoing conversations with friends, teammates, and leaders in the black community, I realize this is not an issue about the American flag. It has never been. We can no longer use the flag to turn people away or distract them from the real issues that face our black communities. We did this back in 2017, and regretfully I brought it back with my comments this week. We must stop talking about the flag and shift our attention to the real issues of systemic racial injustice, economic oppression, police brutality, and judicial & prison reform.”

He continued, “We are at a critical juncture in our nation’s history! If not now, then when? We as a white community need to listen and learn from the pain and suffering of our black communities. We must acknowledge the problems, identify the solutions, and then put this into action. The black community cannot do it alone. This will require all of us.”
