Jesse Williams Speaks Out About National Anthem at NFL Games: 'It's A Scam'

Jesse Williams is sharing his thoughts about the National Anthem playing at football games.

The 36-year-old actor says that players stepping onto the field for the anthem is a marketing “scam” and does not have to do with NFL tradition.

“I think…it’s also important to realize that this anthem thing is a scam. This is not actually part of football. This was invented in 2009 from the government paying the NFL to market military recruitment – to get more people to go off and fight wars to die,” Jesse said on MSNBC.

He added, “This has nothing to do with NFL or American pastime or tradition. This is to get boys and girls to go fly overseas and go kill people. They’re marketing. They’re pumping millions and millions of dollars into the NFL to get us to put on a pageant in front of NFL football games to get you to go off and fight.”

    no joke: HE IS ABLE OF TALKING?

    He is speaking TRUTH to power. THIS was all on OBAMA. This was done under the Obama administration, while Obama bots were praising Obama for his words and ” miss him” now; he was bombing 7 countries while using our sports culture as a recruitment tool to target the poor and use them as cannon fodder for the military industrial complex. Trump INHERITS the fascism that Obama and Bush created. All our misery is in fact because of Obama and Bush.

    So stop praising a psychopath monster just because of his oratory skills. His administration created the largest refugee crisis in human history since WW2 for a reason.

    Trump inherits the powers of a God BECAUSE of Obama.
