The NFL commissioner released an 81-second video Friday evening one day after the NFL's biggest black stars released a video urging the NFL to take a harder stand on the issues of police brutality and allowing peaceful protest during games amid the George Floyd protests. Yet Goodell didn't mention Kaepernick, who sparked the league's police brutality protests in 2016 and has been unable to find a job in the NFL since the end of that season. “It has been a difficult time for our country, in particular, black people in our country,” Goodell said. “First, my condolences to the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and all the families who have endured police brutality. We, the National Football League, condemn racism and the systematic oppression of black people."
