Reid should lead by example and post his total income and show how much of his own money he donated.

His rationale is lacking. The revenue is before expenses. It’s a horrible metric to use to start with. And NFL didn’t have to give anything. 20 million is huge, especially since it won’t do anything at all. Neither would 200m. 

NFL income is around ~10B.  His point remains.  Bank of America announced they will donate $1B to social injustice.

As a society, our view is pretty skewed. Obviously when it comes to race, and it needs adjusting, and also when it comes to money. When did $20 million become nothing?

The NFL's track record isn't perfect, no one's is, but it never helps when someone finally puts their shoulder to the wheel if you then jump on them and ask them where the eff were they yesterday? 

If you really want change, then you can't attack those who have seen the light, come to your side and are trying to help. Otherwise that change will collapse and die.

What was the amount donated to social justices before the $20M additional anounced?

What are they exactly donating to? That's a broad fugging term. And seen the light? Because they made a vanilla statement all of a sudden they've seen the light? My sweet summer child

Because people want someone to direct energy towards and be angry about. If that is taken away, they’re lost.

Point being, it doesn’t matter what the NFL does. You can’t please everyone and some people will never be happy.  If we as people trying to change what’s going on do not accept and understand this,  as well as the fact that change does not happen overnight, focus will be lost and as you said things will collapse.

Exactly what I was thinking.

I wonder if he marched in any of the protests?  At least 5 current Panthers did and none of them have been nearly as publicly outspoken as Reid.   As invested as Reid is you would think he would have been an organizer of one and the lead person on the day of.
