Seattle Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin took Colin Kaepernick’s kneel a step further in demanding attorney generals from all 50 states review their police training policies.
He says since then, he’s received “a few” death threats in the wake of his protests, per ESPN.
In speaking with 60 Minutes Sports, Baldwin admitted that “a couple of people told me to watch my back.”
Baldwin, whose father is a police officer, said the threats wouldn’t keep him from speaking out.
“If something was to happen to me, I think that would just further prove my point that there are issues in our culture, in our society that need to be changed,” he said.
Kaepernick has said that he, too, has received death threats since he first sat, and then kneeled during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and injustice to marginalized groups and communities, namely African Americans.
