Miami Dolphins receiver Kenny Stills has released a revealing mini documentary that attempts to explain the reasons behind his decision to kneel during the national anthem since 2016.
In the documentary, “Kenny Stills,” he said he was inspired to join Colin Kaepernick’s crusade designed to create awareness for social justice issues in America after finding himself distraught over the 2016 shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, two unarmed black men who were fatally shot by police officers in the same month.
“I don’t think people really understand what it’s like to look in the mirror and feel like you’re not important, nobody gives a s—,” said Stills, who has spent the past three seasons as the Dolphins starting flanker. “If you didn’t play football you’re irrelevant because of your skin tone.”
