Amy Schumer Suggests Players Who Don't Kneel For Make-Believe Issue Are Racist

Amy Schumer said people of color face 'police brutality and murders' in an Instagram post

Comedian Amy Schumer said people of color face “police brutality and murders” and questioned whether white players who don’t participate in the anti-police National Anthem protests are complicit in racism.

Schumer made her views public in an Oct. 19 Instagram post where she said she would not be in any Super Bowl commercials and compared the National Football League to the National Rifle Association.

“I wonder why more white players aren’t kneeling,” Schumer posted.

“Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders. Why not kneel next to your brothers? Otherwise how are you not complicit?” she added.

Actual studies on police brutality don't support her position.

She said it would be “cool” if the band Maroon 5 backed out of performing at the Super Bowl like Rihanna did. Fox News reported that Maroon 5 was set to perform at the halftime show of the Super Bowl.

Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine previously appeared in a video with other celebrities saying that police kill black people for no reason.

In the video, Levine said that Jamar Clark was shot by police for attending a birthday party.

Jamar Clark was shot after police tried to arrest him during a confrontation with paramedics. He resisted arrest and grabbed an officer's gun before he was shot.

Local activists later claimed that Clark was laying on the ground handcuffed when police executed him for no reason, despite 10 paramedic and law enforcement witnesses who said otherwise.

“I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year,” Schumer said. “I know it must sound like a privilege a*s sacrifice but it’s all i got. Hitting the nfl with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them. I know opposing the nfl is like opposing the nra. Very tough, but don’t you want to be proud of how you’re living? Stand up for your brothers and sisters of color.”

Schumer also wrote the “hottest thing a guy” can do was to get down on one knee. “Not to propose but to reject the treatment of his teammates by this country,” she wrote.

Show your support for real heroes who sacrifice everything for what they believe in with a hoodie from Warrior 12.

Schumer also made reference to Colin Kaepernick during her Instagram post. Kaepernick is the former NFL quarterback who started the National Anthem protests in 2016.

In October, Schumer and model Emily Ratajkowski were arrested during protests over the nomination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, according to CNN.

That's cute. Is Amy Schumer considered a "leader of the black community" now?

This and other media outlets assume so.

I like it, throw some celebrity support behind the the NFL boycott, although her reasons are different than mine we can all get there the same way.

Rihanna already turned down the super bowl in support of Kap. Schumer is just trying to cash in on Rihanna's power move and white feminist karma, but no one cares if she's in a super bowl commercial or not.

These so called celebrities are so out of touch with reality. I expect stupidity out of Shumer but not Adam. Shame on the both of you

All the shootings I have seen of blacks being shot were justified in my opinion. It's usually the blacks who tell lies and then that inflames the situation.

Do Democrats take a knee in Congress to protest our police? Nope. They are either racists, won't admit that they're racists or are afraid of losing all of that Capitol Police protection.

Interesting how police procedure is so often referred to a police brutality. People want the police to do their job, but they sure hate seeing it being done. Sad.

I laugh at this because I find it highly unlikely that ANY ADVERTISER would want Amy Schumer to represent their product. The woman is delusional!!! Her opinion matters to me about as much as what my toilet bowl thinks of the issue...and speaking of toilet bowls, that's the only commercials she should be making...so she can learn to clean up her gutter language and gutter heart. Seriously??? Does she think she's actually contributing to ANYTHING here? She's nothing but a wanna-be...seeking attention for herself...not for any black person that may have been wronged...not for any football player who's lost the respect of patriotic Americans. When blacks stop killing blacks viciously and for no reason, then we can work on the police who commit these acts!!! But the police have the right to do their jobs safely...and when anyone...black or white...threatens a policeman in ANY WAY...there will always be instant justice. A policeman shouldn't have to die for a black man to feel "safe" after that black man's ACTIONS have indicated that he is DANGEROUS.

The world would be so much better if Amy Schumer's would shut the hell up. Ever single time she opens her mouth she reveals just how stupid and ignorant she is.

Wouldn't it be cool if we simply cancelled the NFL.

Amy Schumer has the brain power of a Lobotomized Gnat and the mouth of a 25 foot long Crocodile!!! She makes Rozanne Barr, Rosie O’Donnell, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi and Hellary Clinton all look like Vatican Nuns!!! She is the most filthy minded, foul mouthed person who carries a uterus inside her!!! She is certainly not a lady and she is no woman!!!!

I hope and pray she will never be allowed to get pregnant, regardless of how many times she has sex in the gutters or sewers!!! I’m pretty sure she spends a lot of time in those two places because that’s where she gets her language from!!!! Amy Schumer is a disgrace to all females and like everything else, she has no idea of what she is talking about here!!!!

Her logic of kneeling with your brothers represents what my dear, precious mother used to say when I said my friends were doing it.... “So if your friends jumped off a cliff, would you??? If your friends shoved a stick in their eye, would you shove a stick in your eye, too”?

Amy Schumer’s logic is worth as much as the rest of her thoughts and comments.... absolutely worthless!!!!! There is something extremely wrong with this person named Amy Schumer!!! I’d say she was raped at a very young age, possibly as an infant and many times after!!! She needs years of psychotherapy counseling to become a useful part of society!!!!

Why would anyone take advice from this self proclaimed skank? She is just another NPC, regurgitating bullshit to sound relevant. Stick to what you Amy; taking it in the ass and swallowing.

Just like the NFL football players and other Hollywood types-- just because you hand someone a microphone to talk and show them on camera does not mean they will actually say something intelligent.

It's simple - any movie or event that she is part of is to be avoided. The only way they will listen is if it costs them in their pocketbook!!!!

I stand for the pledge of allegiance, but I DON'T stand for the "national anthem". It was written by a white supremacist. People who stand for that "song"should know all the lyrics and what they mean and the views of the author. Those who stand may not be racist but they are a little bit misguided if they think it's just an innocent song.
