NFL's Benjamin Watson: Remove The Confederate Flag For The Right Reasons


Saints tight end Benjamin Watson is particularly engaged with current events—his thoughts after the decision not to bring charges in the shooting death of Michael Brown , and managed to find support from all sides. Today, he wrote about the swelling movement to take down the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the South Carolina Statehouse, in the wake of the racist murders of nine people at a Charleston church. And in keeping with his measured approach, he says whether the state lowers the flag means less than why it does so.
