Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson is weighing in on Black History Month this week, arguing that black lives do not matter when we support the “termination” of black unborn children.
Writing on his Facebook page Thursday, the NFL star urged his fans to consider the burden of making black lives matter.
As part of a larger list outlining the struggles and injustices blacks face and how their perpetuation diminishes the lives of blacks, the NFL star said, “Black lives don’t matter when we support and engage in the termination of our most important resource and our hope for a brighter future; our unborn children.”
“When it comes to race and ethnicity, the dining room in our homes is just as important as the court room in evoking true lasting improvement,” Watson said.
“What happens or doesn’t happen in these family times is paramount to our collective health as a society. I shall no more tell my children to succumb to their skin color and its supposed disadvantages then any parent whose offspring may be subject to any other form of adversity.”
Watson has spoken out on several occasions about the plight of the unborn, most recently at the March for Life on Jan. 27.
