community news, TNTs Ernie Johnson addresses Drew Breess flag comments

1. Inside the NBA returned Thursday night with a special edition during which the panel talked about the events of the past week, including the Drew Brees controversy.

Host Ernie Johnson shared some strong words about the flag and people who refuse to understand the reason why Colin Kaepernick and others took a knee during the national anthem. Here’s a portion of Johnson’s thoughtful comments:

“You can fly the flag at your house. You can salute the flag. You can revere the flag. You can respect the flag. And all of those are fine. What you cannot do is use the flag as a blindfold. You can’t use the flag as a blindfold and not see the things you’ve seen with your very eyes that tell you that what’s keeping this country held back is systemic racism. When you see these things happen, you can’t be blinded by that.”

Johnson’s colleague, Shaquille O’Neal, also revealed on the TNT show that he was on Thursday’s call with the Saints team when Brees apologized to his teammates.
