Houston Texans Respond To McNair’s Inmate Comment By Taking A Knee
Before their matchup against the Seattle Seahawks this past Sunday, 90% of the Houston Texans’ squad took a knee. The protest was a direct reaction to being referred to as “inmates” by their team owner, Bob McNair. Last week, an ESPN report exposed the Trump campaign supporting McNair, where during a meeting between 11 team NFL team owners he uttered “we can’t have inmates running the prison”.
McNair was referring to the controversy over NFL players taking a knee to protest police unjustly killing Black people. The acgt was started by Colin Kaepernick over a year ago and it steady upsetting the racist white folks who are watching football. Left tackle for the team, Duane Brown, tells ESPN that McNair met with the team on Saturday but it didn’t go “well.”
McNair met with the team on Saturday morning, but when asked how the meeting went, Brown said, “Not too well. But like I said, we blocked out all distractions and came out here ready to play.”
