I personally protest with you and want to be part of the much needed change in this country Without black players, there would be no National Football League, Goodell said.Floyd died shortly after Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was recorded with his knee on Floyds neck following his plea of being unable to breathe.Chauvin andthree other officers have been fired and chargedin connection with Floyds death.The video footage caused an outbreak of protests throughout the country, renewing conversation about police brutality and social injustice. The NFL has come under fire since Floyds death, as the image ofChauvin on Floyds neck is being compared to former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.In August 2016,Kaepernick protestedfor people that are oppressed when he kneeled during the national anthem. The moved sparked years of controversy, lawsuits, an eventual settlement, and ablown attempt to reconcileafterKaepernick was blackballed.Basketball legendKareem Abdul-Jabbar joined CNBCs Closing Bellon Tuesday to discuss the recent protests throughout the country following Floyds death, the killing of Breonna Taylor in Louisville and the Feb. 23 shooting of Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia.Abdul-Jabbar said the NFL needs to prove to all of us that they mean what they say followingGoodells first statementto address the systemic issuesfacing minorities.We have to listen to people who are suffering, Abdul-Jabbar said. He also called for law enforcement and companies to understand the problem facing blacks in America.Certain people among the ranks of police are racist or are afraid of people who dont look like them, Abdul-Jabbar said. I think all of us would serve this issue if we can make friends with someone who doesnt look like us. I think that is a key issue here, that too much of peoples humanity and their right to be a part of the American dream, thats not recognized all the time, and thats very unfortunate.This story first appeared on CNBC.com.
