Richard Sherman spoke at length about race relations on Wednesday after an impostor made a social media post under his name that gained attention.
Sherman said he did not agree with everything in the post, but that he was going to use the opportunity and his position to make some points on diversity.
"I think it's an important message to get out there to kids, especially while you have the platform. I'm just a football player. Who am I to say anything? But as long as people are watching, people respect my opinion, I'm going to give it," Sherman said. "And I think it’s incredibly important for people to understand at the end of the day we’re humans. Humanity, let’s celebrate our humanity."
The faux post with Sherman’s name was in response to the Black Lives Matter movement.
