Seemingly out of nowhere, Floyd Mayweather expressed his belief that all lives matter after he was asked why other boxers aren't selling out fights like he used to. "I'm here to say all lives matter," Mayweather said. "You know, a lot of times, we get stuck, and we are followers. When you hear one person say, 'black lives matter,' or 'blue lives matter,' all lives matter."
Floyd went on to convey a lesson he learned from boxing that he believes translates outside of the ring. "What I learned from boxing what everyone can take in real life is follow directions, follow order," Mayweather said. "Don't give nobody a hard time."
Now, the problem with Floyd's argument is that someone like Charles Kinsey, took that approach, and still nearly lost his life. Kinsey held his hands in the air while lying on the ground, pleading with North Miami police, and he was still shot in the leg. After getting pulled over for a broken tail light, Philando Castile informed officer Jeronimo Yanez of the firearm in his car, and his license to carry a weapon. Castile was still shot and killed for following orders.
Mayweather also had some words of advice for Colin Kaepernick and his national anthem protest. "Kaepernick needs to try and get the starting job," Floyd said. "Stand up, and get the starting job. That's what he needs to focus on. But I can't knock him, if that's what he believes in and the people stand behind him, so be it. He's got the number one selling jersey, so it's obvious he's doing something right." Oh Floyd...
