This racially slurred message sent to Budda Baker is why we should all be kneeling

Football is bigger than just a game. People that play the game are humans. Sometimes as fans we forget that. We forget why some players kneel or want justice when it comes to injustices.

Well we also forget that people can be cruel and rude. Well one fan this week took his emotions too far. A Niners fan on Twitter who cowardly removed his account sent Cardinals safety Budda Baker a nasty message after this team lost.

Baker made a play on an overthrown ball to tackle George Kittle which is what caused the problem.

Baker posted the message on his Twitter account and it is disgusting.

I do not know who this person is or why he would say these things but it pisses me off. So many people sit behind a computer and type tough guy messages, but then hide when it comes out in public. This is why players kneel. This is why people complain about injustices. This is why players should use their platform.

There is no room for this in the NFL and I hope Twitter and the NFL investigate this matter. Him talking about a bounty is scary enough to press charges.

Racism is real and it is wrong. I do not know who that person is but Budda Baker said it best. He needs prayer.

Budda, I am not a Niners fan but I do know hundreds of Niners fans and that is not how they act. I am sorry you had to go through this. People suck.
