Roger Goodell had no right to be in Buffalo paying respects to the victims of the May 14th Massacre. He and the NFL played a major role in the rise of the radical Right’s anti-Black rhetoric and violence, with their hostile and contentious reaction to Colin Kaepernick, their divisive speech, and their distortion of what U.S. patriotism looks like. Imagine the U.S. today if Goodell embraced Colin’s message in 2016. His apology came four years later, after the murder of George Flyod. He bears responsibility.
