Michigan NAN calls for MSP Director to resign over post on kneeling athletes
The Michigan chapter of the National Action Network has called for a Michigan State Police director to resign over a controversial post she made about athletes taking a knee during the national anthem. Col. Kriste Etue called black athletes “degenerates” for taking a knee to protest police brutality in the Facebook post. Rev. Charles E. Williams II, president of the Michigan NAN, said Etue is unfit for the position. “Colonel Etue should resign immediately because she is unfit to lead the MSP in a state that has such a significant African American population," he said in a release."
