” The comment [Urlacher] displayed is devoid of empathy, compassion, wisdom and consistency, ”Forte wrote. “But full of pride and ignorance! I pray for those who have been blinded by their wealth, privilege, and earthly fame which nourishes arrogance in their hearts. And those who refuse to recognize racism and injustice but instead choose to put their energy into justifying it by quickly judging the victim’s life as if they themselves are more valuable because their sins are different or not. have not been taken by humans. But God sees everything. ”
Forte’s tweet was retweeted by, among others, Lance Briggs, the former Bears linebacker who played alongside Urlacher for 10 seasons.
