Malcolm Jenkins responds to questions with written sign

  • NBA Finals Cleveland Cavaliers at Golden State Warriors

Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins used silence and signs to deliver a strong message on what the protests by National Football League players are really all about. Last year, they took a group of students to the National Museum of African American History and Culture and Durant, who is from the Washington area, officially announced his foundation's $10 million College Track program to help students in high school and college.

"He's basically making a very simple request that when the National Anthem is played at a sporting event, people stand, and people respect that and I know everybody saying but nobody need, nobody - they're obviously are some hurt feelings over the new policy".

Safety Malcolm Jenkins, perhaps the most visible leader in the players' protest against racial injustice, spends his off time riding along with police officers, visiting prisons and meeting with public defenders and lawmakers. That invitation - not unlike the Eagles' - was pulled after a number of players vacillated on attending. "You don't need to be out there, you can be in the locker room". Warriors players indicated after winning the championship in 2017 that they would not go to the White House, then as they were set to meet as a team to formally decide, Trump rescinded the invitation.


"Instead the decision was made to lie, and paint the picture that these players are anti-America, anti-flag and anti-military".

James said he had just heard the news on his way to the podium for the news conference.

"I know whoever wins this series, no one wants an invite [to the White House]", the Cavaliers star said Tuesday. It's also true that the practice of skipping the White House event isn't new; individual players have opted out of the ceremonies, both under Trump and other past presidents, including Barack Obama.

"It's not surprising", Kerr said. We get it at this point. "We're finally having our eyes opened to this myth that sports and politics should always remain separate".
