Richard Sherman, and why he’s one of my favorite people right now. 

Sure, you might remember Richard Sherman as the “asshole” who said he’s the best cornerback in the league a couple seasons ago. People were pretty upset with him. But I always thought well if you’re winning the Super Bowl with your team then you have every right to say you’re the best since technically you are for the year. Anyways! What he’s doing now really made me proud of him. 
A website used his picture to promote rioting acts by the Black Lives Matter movement. He was not pleased with it and he took the time to write a huge paragraph to the people who made it. In it he talks about how he has worked hard his whole life and he made himself what he is today. He talks about America being a great place for anyone to start out and become whoever they want and everyone has that choice. My favorite piece was this quote, 

No one owes you anything stand proud as a person of color , and do something meaningful with your life

“No one owes you anything, stand proud as a person of color and do something meaningful with your life.”
