Video Transcript

EMMANUEL ACHO: But it is a matter of raising awareness. So there are people, Dan, on far sides-- extremes-- that I don't try to talk to. I'm trying to stand as a bridge and just say, hey, let's all for one second just have a conversation about what is and isn't right. I'm not negating Drew Brees's opinion, right?

So many people are like, wait, Drew Brees is allowed to have an opinion. He is. Just make sure that your opinion is at least just in its stance. And that is, I think, where the misconception was with Drew Brees is that his opinion implied that OK, if I stand, because so many people fought in this war. And I stand, kind of, to pay homage for that, it implied ignorance of the black people who fought in the war and didn't get the same rights. And so that's really how I approach the totality of the flag and the National Anthem.
