A former Super Bowl champion said Thursday top white NFL quarterbacks should pick up where Colin Kaepernick was forced to leave off and begin kneeling for the national anthem to bring awareness to perceived racial and social injustice.
Martellus Bennett, who won a Super Bowl with the New England Patriots in 2016 and made the Pro Bowl with the Chicago Bears in 2014, appeared at an Athletes + Activism forum hosted by The Atlantic columnist Jemele Hill.
He said if Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees joined the movement, it could cause some change, according to Yahoo Sports.
If Peyton Manning joined the conversation, the conversation in the NFL would change, Bennett said.
If Drew Brees came in and really joined the conversation, it would change.
Tom Brady. All these great white heroes that they have running around, throwing the football if they jump into the conversation, it would be so much bigger.
Manning is retired, so it's not clear how Bennett believes he could aid the movement.

Absolutely correct. The police aren’t targeting blacks - it’s a complete fabrication, brought to us by the party of slavery. Protest whatever you want, but honor and respect the flag and nation that made your fairytale life possible. Ingrates. They should be forced into the Canadian league.
Todays white communists are no smarter than what Manson thought the blacks were
You should keep your stupid and useless advise to yourself, and stay off the threads that I post. How's that sound? (worthless jackass)
Bennett Should have been made to cite examples when coming to such an endorsement instead of allowing Patriots QB spouting out democrat propaganda by so called FOX reporter Ryan Gaylos
Don’t forget Buzz Fazio, Don Carter, and Dick Weber....
Didn’t Kaepernick get his money from the NFL already? Isn’t he over now?
And if pigs flew.
“bring awareness to perceived racial and social injustice”
The key is “perceived”. Some folks don’t do as well as others. Not unjust. Just the way it is. Envy, jealousy and coveting other people’s stuff is unjust. Doing whatever you can to whip up this resentment and hatred against people is unjust.
So, the Negros are admitting that they don't have the ability to do it on their own. They need the White man to fight their fight. Just like the White man fought for their freedom.
I don't know. I just wanted to point out what he and "the movement" was really about. Lots of folks still don't know. Some incredibly stupid folks, one of whom has commented on this thread, can't figure out how the various pieces I posted here relates to each other.
I liked to watch Dick Weber.
Every strike a Brooklyn.
Yeah, and last I checked that gif he was still bowling strikes! Must be 50 in a row by now!
(joking!) :) :)
I just can’t express how happy I am we didn’t pick our own cotton...
‘I liked to watch Dick Weber.’
I liked to watch Susie Anthony...
‘Dont forget Buzz Fazio, Don Carter, and Dick Weber....’
anyone remember Steve Nagy...?
That would finally put the NFL to a merciful, quick and well deserved death. I’d laugh my ass off.
Remember Carmen Salvino????
