Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores questioned Friday why many who criticized NFL players for kneeling during the U.S. national anthem to protest social injustice have been less vocal about police killings of black civilians including George Floyd.
Floyd died Monday in Minneapolis after Derek Chauvin, a white officer, held his knee on Floyd’s neck for over eight minutes.
Chauvin was arrested Friday and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter after several days of public outrage and riots.
Flores, one of four minority head coaches in the NFL, addressed racial injustice in a statement issued through the Dolphins.
