The sports world has been focusing on protests a lot recently. ESPN hosts have repeatedly debated what athletes should talk about politically.
Since the NFL preseason is picking up, the recent focus has been on football players protesting the National Anthem. Colin Kaepernick was one of the first to do this, specifically to protest racism by police officers.
Although many have joined Kaepernick’s cause, some are speaking out in support of police officers. Before a game on Saturday night, Green Bay Packers’ safety, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix honored 4 slain officers by writing their names on his cleats.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is from Orlando, and is known for his support for first responders in both Florida and Wisconsin.
