Mike Ditka: 'No oppression in last 100 years'

Mike Ditka Says There's Been No Oppression Of Black People In The Last 100 Years

But during an appearance Tuesday on Fox & Friends, Broadway Joe did not toe the Fox line while speaking about the National Football League protests. "I would say, adios".

Another, Price Thomas, added: "if you're mad at #ditka i'm confused why you're surprised that an old white dude is an out of touch racist". If you can't respect this flag and this country, then you don't know what this is all about. "I think we've made that very clear that what we are demonstrating about has nothing to do with the flag but everything to do with social injustice, racial inequality and the things that Jerry Jones and other owners who are making statements have yet to address", the safety said to NBC Sports Philadelphia. I think you can accomplish anything, and we have watched that throughout our history of our country.

Former Bears player and coach Mike Ditka has sparked a backlash after saying he is not aware of any oppression of black people in the past 100 years. "But going back to what Colin Kaepernick initially did, it was to point out some injustice that's being done to the black race or to people that - obviously when you look and I say, obviously, some of these dash-cams and shootings that were done to unarmed people and all, he was reaching out to try and get it more investigated".

Ditka, when asked late last month about the protests by the Sun-Times, "Whoever you think is right, is right". I see a lot of respect for their own individual opinions... You have to look at a person for what he is and what he stands for and how he produces. "It's been so good to me".

You can't get much more clueless and forgetful than this. "Go to another country and play football", Ditka said. You might recall the time previous year he said that Colin Kaepernick should "get the hell out" of the country if he doesn't like it here.

Ditka, a Hall of Fame tight end for the Chicago Bears before becoming the team's coach, actually fixed his mouth to say Monday in a national radio interview that the United States has been free of oppression and rabid racism since the 1800s. "That's where you protest", Ditka said. Understand? We will not. if we are disrespecting the flag, then we will not play.

I see opportunities if people want to look for opportunity. "If you don't work, that's a different problem".
