Eric Reid Calls Malcolm Jenkins A “Sell Out”
When it comes to fighting for the civil rights of Black folks in America, there have always been conflicts among thought leaders about the best way to achieve a common goal.
Sometimes, that conflict is deeply emotional and can get heated, resentful and downright ugly.
Such is the case between newly-acquired kneeler Eric Reid and outspoken Super Bowl champion Malcolm Jenkins. Yesterday, the two men came to a head personally and professionally as the Carolina Panthers played the Philadelphia Eagles. According to Deadspin, the two men exchanged heated words during the coin toss which lead to the tongue lashing the Reid doled out during post-game interviews.
Jenkins wasted no time responding to Reid’s comments, peep that on the flip side.
We hope these two brothas can make amends and come to an understanding of some sort. They clearly both want the exact same thing for their African-American brothas and sistas in this country.
