On Wednesday morning, Jaguars' owner Shad Khan released an Op-Ed piece regarding racism and the recent events taking place in America.
"Racism in all its forms, will kill. It kills people, it kills communities, it kills dreams, it kills hope," wrote Khan.
His writing started with a bold statement regarding racism as a whole.
Here's the rest:
The events of the past 10 days have been alarming and disheartening. Alarming because we know the history of systemic inequity that brought us to this point, not only with the recent killing of George Floyd and other African Americans in our country, but also the disproportionate impact the coronavirus has wreaked in communities of color. Disheartening because this familiar sequence of killing, followed by protest and civic unrest, followed by inactivity and silence, occurs ever more frequently in our nation.
Khan penned a hear-felt and genuine message to all who will read it. He now needs to make good on his end — to help improve the level of racial equality in the NFL and beyond. Khan could start by working with the rest of the NFL to improve the Rooney rule, which has been failing minority coaches in the NFL, of which there are only four head coaches.
