NFL owner Shad Khan: "Racism, in all its forms, will kill"From CNN's Homero DeLaFuenteSimon Cooper/PA Images via Getty ImagesJacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan released anop-ed on social justiceWednesday, describing the current climate in the United States and detailing his own experiences with racism while growing up as a Pakistani American.

Khan is only one of two people of color among majority owners of the National Football League's 32 teams. Kim Pegula, an Asian American, co-owns the Buffalo Bills."The events of the past 10 days have been alarming and disheartening. Alarming because we know the history of systemic inequity that brought us to this point, not only with the recent killing of George Floyd and other African Americans in our country, but also the disproportionate impact the coronavirus has wreaked in communities of color. Disheartening because this familiar sequence of killing, followed by protest and civic unrest, followed by inactivity and silence, occurs ever more frequently in our nation." Khan said.

He continuedby describing his own experience growing up as a minority in the United States saying, "I came to the United States from Pakistan in 1967 with $500 in my pocket and faith in the American Dream. Opportunities to learn and succeed were abundant, and more than 50 years later I am forever grateful and proud to be a citizen of the United States. Nonetheless, while I pursued my goals as a student and later in the workforce, being a Muslim-American made me a frequent target of prejudice, discrimination and hatred."

At the conclusion of Khan’s op-ed, the Jaguars owner emphasized, "Racism, in all its forms, will kill. It kills people, it kills communities, it kills dreams, it kills hope. For many Americans, now is the moment. Never has that been clearer. I don't want to waste this moment."

FIRST DEGREE... it was it SHOULD BE... Not good enough. First degree & life sentence!! About damn time!! Finally! Took too long if you ask me. Let justice be done, that's what everyone wants. ✊ I wonder if this will make assholes stop burning down buildings and trashing cities. Since its all about the cops not being punished appropriately

Why does no one care about Tony timpa, killed the same way but was white Great news I am with you 6 days later just like MLK. it's good BUT we NEED MORE ACTION. COPS need to have a COLLEGE DEGREE COPS NEED TO HAVE MORE THAN JUST 1000 HOURS OF TRAINING. PHYCOLOGY EXAMS SHOULD REQUIRED ON A ROUTINE BASIS AND BEFORE HIRE

Good. Now we just need the guilty verdict Wow. ! Who are the appointed attorneys to these ex-cops? They should not be appointed by their (ex) dep. They should hire their own layers and if they can’t afford it, they should have a public defender appointed to them like everyone else! We should not be the one paying for it!

An open murder calls for an open Justice. It was a first degree murder, it must also attract a first degree justice. A murder which has destroyed America can't be Second degree,it reflects as first degree murder and an intention which has derailed society.And caused destructions I’ve heard on Canadian TV the others are charged with aiding 2nd degree murder before anything is said on

Post those mug shots, let their families see! Is Amy klobuchar the media relations spokesperson for the Minnesota attorney general now? HarryQuickk Handcuffed, on the ground held down by 4. He cries out - we all went through Eric Garner yet these cops and that monster keeps on Mr Floyds neck even after he is unconscious. When we saw that video... we were shouting at screen.

Don’t give up now! Use your voice to demand congress to put change on paper, before we give them our votes November! They wonder why the protests have gone this far. I can't help but think that this may be a mistake. They will now have to prove that he killed him intentionally with that many witnesses around and cameras pointed at him. I hope he doesn't walk free and gets what he deserves.
