D.L. Hughley is demanding action from some NFL legends -- calling out Jerry Rice, Ray Lewis and others who condemned Colin Kaepernick ... and asking why they're not as upset about the shooting of Terence Crutcher.
Of course, Crutcher is the 40-year-old black man who was shot by a white police officer in Tulsa while his hands were raised and he appeared to be surrendering.
"All the people from Jerry Rice to Jason Whitlock to Ray Lewis to Rodney Harrison who was so upset about Colin Kaepernick not standing up, I wish all of them were just as upset about Terence Crutcher getting shot down as they were about Colin Kaepernick not standing up," Hughley said.
For reference, here are the previous statements the NFL legends made about Kaepernick:
Jerry Rice -- "All lives matter. So much going on in this world today. Can we all just get along! Colin, I respect your stance but don't disrespect the Flag."
Ray Lewis -- "Listen I understand what you're trying to do, but understand, take the flag out of it. I have uncles, I've got brothers, going into the military, that said I will never see you again. To understand that I will always respect that part of what our patriotism should be. And that's the side that I think if Colin just really steps back, to effect change, to effect true change in what he's trying to say, if you don't have a real solution, if you ain't seen as a true activist, to go into hoods and do these things on a daily basis and not just jump up and just protest off this one thing because you're sick of it -- we've been sick of racism for 400-plus years."
Rodney Harrison -- "I think his heart is in the right place, I just think he was going about it in the wrong way. If he really wants to make change, sitting his butt down [during the anthem], that’s not going to change, that’s going to get people very upset and he has to understand that."
"And I tell you this, I’m a black man. And Colin Kaepernick -- he’s not black. He can not understand what I face and what other young black men and black people face, or people of color face, on a every single [day] basis. When you walk in a grocery store, and you might have $2,000 or $3,000 in your pocket and you go up in to a Foot Locker and they’re looking at you like you about to steal something. I don’t think he faces those types of things.”
