“I want to get together with players, coaches, and community leaders to get the conversation going, to discuss how to go forward,” the Raiders owner said. “The solutions start here at the local level, with the attorney general, the sheriff, and other community leaders to open up lines of communication. That’s the beginning.
“Like I said in my statement, not only do we have to tell people there’s something wrong, we have to come up with solutions — as Americans and human beings. I’m trying to be positive but truthful.”
It’s a troubling situation that once again underlines the unfair treatment that minorities in the United States receive every day. The protests that have followed have helped highlight the drastic changes that need to take place to help put an end to these discouraging ordeals.
It’s a societal matter that continues to crop up that requires action to get things headed in the right direction.
