Aaron Rodgers’ teammates and head coach have his back and then some when it comes to his thoughtful leadership calling for racial equality and social justice.Following Rodgers’ strong message supporting all forms of protest in the wake of George Floyd’s killing and Saints quarterback Drew Brees’ misguided comments Wednesday night, the Packers put out the strongest team response yet from the NFL on Thursday morning. “Racism is taught and learned. It’s not something you’re born with. Let’s do a better job of educating our youth and younger people behind us,” Adams continues.”We need to come up with real solutions to make significant change. The right actions speak a lot louder than the right words,” LaFleur adds.Everyone is passionate and angry and not a second is wasted in demanding change and offering suggestions to the systemic problems, in both law enforcement and society at large. The Packers came together to pack a punch that no NFL team has been able to provide so far with a collective statement. Their strength in numbers should resonate throughout the league. Rodgers was joined by 11 of his Green Bay teammates and Matt LaFleur in a must-watch video posted on the team’s Twitter account. By position, they were running back Aaron Jones, wide receiver Davante Adams, tight end Marcedes Lewis, offensive linemen David Bakhtiari, Billy Turner and Corey Linsley, kicker Mason Crosby, defensive lineman Kenny Clark, linebacker Preston Smith and defensive backs Adrian Amos and Kevin King.🖤 https://t.co/iyAaVwgn52— Aaron Rodgers (@AaronRodgers12) June 4, 2020MORE: Aaron Rodgers: NFL protests have never been about the flagIn the video, titled “Enough is Enough,” the players start by sharing their embarrassment for the state of race in America and end by echoing each other with “it’s time for change.” “Antiquated laws and legislation need to be amended and repealed, especially those prejudicially biased toward people of color,” Rodgers says in the video.
