Kansas City Chiefs fans booed when their Super Bowl-winning team locked arms with the Houston Texans for racial equality before the first NFL game of the season.
Kansas City Councilman Eric Bunch was shocked by the behavior of the fans.
Some NFL fans booing the players for standing and locking arms in a moment of silent unity proves that for them “standing for the flag” was always about perpetuating white supremacy.— Eric Bunch (@EricWBunch) September 11, 2020
Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas also tweeted about the booing.
We’re a good city of good people. I heard boos too. But we also have hundreds of thousands more around here who respect the message the players are sharing; who respect the rights of our players and people to voice a strong message and who are working to make us better each day.— Mayor Q (@QuintonLucasKC) September 11, 2020
