In 2020, Roger Goodell Announced That He Supports the Player’s Right to Take a Knee
Only after nationwide uproar over police killings.
In a video released by Goodell in June 2020, he announced a shift in his view on the peaceful kneeling protest during the national anthem. "We, the National Football League, condemn racism and the systematic oppression of Black people. We, the National Football League, admit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier, and encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the National Football League, believe Black lives matter," he said. The video came amid uproar over the killing of George Floyd and nationwide protests nearly every night. In the video posted to Instagram, he went on to give his condolences to the families of Black people murdered in racially-motivated incidents. He included the names of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, as well as "all the families who have endured police brutality." A number of NFL players later released a video for the league saying the league condemns all forms of racism.
