WATCH: New Orleans Saints Vow "Not To Stick To Sports" This Season

On Friday just two days before their first game of the season, the New Orleans Saints announced that they were dedicating their 2020 season to the "oppression" of black women in America.

The Saints released a video of players sitting down to “raise awareness about the current state of black women in America.”

The Daily Wire reports: "The video shows eight saints players – left tackle Terron Armstead, quarterback Drew Brees, linebacker Demario Davis, safety Malcolm Jenkins, defensive end Cameron Jordan, running back Alvin Kamara, punter Thomas Morstead, and linebacker Craig Robertson – alternating and reading through parts of a script explaining the initiative."

Read the transcript of the video below:

We care about the issues that plague our community, and in light of all of the things that we see going on in our country, we as Saints want to utilize our platform this season for meaningful change, not to distract from issues. Not to stick to sports, but to work together as teammates for meaningful change. Our goal is to raise awareness about the current state of black women in America.

When it comes to broader conversation of social justice, black women are usually left out. As is evidence in the case of Breonna Taylor … we are failing to acknowledge the intersecting impacts of racism and sexism of black women. As men we feel it is time to evaluate our spaces, do our part, and use our platform to uplift the stories of our most disenfranchised. By uplifting our leaders, the left out, and the overlooked. We can bring about solutions that elicit systemic change both in New Orleans and around the country and ultimately make a safer, more equitable America.

We invite you to take a journey with us this season. Take a journey with us to help us ensure that all people are treated equally and fairly, to have and live full complete lives … for future generations to come. Because we are the Saints … and it’s time we say her name.

Check out what the Daily Wire reported:

Taylor, an emergency medical technician, died after being shot five times by police officers conducting a no-knock raid on her apartment in connection with a drug investigation. Taylor was not a suspect of the investigation. She had dated one of the main suspects on and off before severing ties with him before the March 13 raid, according to Taylor family lawyers.

The NFL is making a concerted effort to ramp up social justice messaging throughout the 2020-2021 season. The league has painted massive slogans such as “end racism” and “it takes all of us” in end zones. Players have placed the names of victims of alleged police racism on their helmets. Before every game, stadiums play “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” which has been dubbed the “black national anthem,” along with the “Star Spangled Banner.”
