Michael Bennett, a defensive end for the NFL Seahawks, has, according to the Seattle Times:
...been a focal point of attention all season for off-field reasons as much as on. He made news in September for alleging that he had been the victim of excessive force and racial profiling when he was briefly detained by police in Las Vegas who were investigating a report of a possible live shooter at a casino.
He also sat for the national anthem for all but two Seahawks’ games this season, with other defensive linemen typically joining him in solidarity.
He's even co-authored a new book entitled Things That Make White People Uncomfortable!
Bennett was never called out by the mainstream media for seemingly making unsubstantiated allegations about Las Vegas police.
Contrary to what Black Lives Matter wants you to believe, Michael Bennett is no "hero."
