READ: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Writes Blistering Open Letter to NFL Owners Criticizing Them for Implementing Anthem Policy

Brutal.

“To deny players the right to express their frustration in a peaceful manner is a disgrace to the Constitution, the opposite of patriotism,” Abdul-Jabbar wrote. “By compromising ethics to the economy, you show moral weakness.”

He urged team owners to resist “telling them that they must abide by your white perception of social justice even though you have no experience with the kind of institutional injustice that robs their community of lives, hope, and a future.”

“You don’t own the players or their hearts and minds.”

Twitter went wild over the letter, with users showing their support for the players and their right to #takeaknee.
