NFL superstar and Super Bowl champion Richard Sherman took some shots at Black Lives Matter protesters, saying it’s ‘ignorant’ to call for violence against police officers and that the movement might want to focus on “black-on-black crime” first.
Sherman was responding to an online posting which incorrectly attributed an article advocating for violence against police officers to the Seattle Seahawks running back.
He explained that he had nothing to do with the article.
“I don’t think any time’s a time to call out for an all-out war against police or any race of people” he said. “I thought that was an ignorant statement.”
Sherman then shifted to the topic of Black Lives Matter.

He went on to say he supports some arguments brought up by Black Lives Matter, but believes the issue of black-on-black crime must be addressed first by the group.
“I think that’s the point we need to get to is that we need to deal with our own internal issues before we move forward and start pointing fingers and start attacking other people. We need to solidify ourselves as people and deal with our issues, because I think as long as we have black-on-black crime and, you know, one black man killing another. If black lives matter, then it should matter all the time,” he said.

Sherman then made the one comment that is widely considered ‘racist’ amongst far-left crazies in the Black Lives Matter movement.
“I think a person saying that we should celebrate our humanity and that all lives matter, if that turns off an advertiser or turns off a company, then more power to you.”
All lives matter! The horror.
