 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence is aware that some fans disagree with his decision to be so vocal while speaking out against racism, and to those people Lawrence has a message: good riddance. "It's important for us to stand up for something. It's easy to stay quiet because some people don't want to make people mad," Lawrence said. "But my thoughts on it are - those aren't the kind of fans, followers, whatever (that) you want, if it makes them mad if you stand up for equality." The Tigers star and arguably the face of college football, Lawrence first spoke out about George Floyd's death and the need for change on Twitter May 29, four days after Floyd died when a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck for more than eight minutes.

"There has to be a shift in the way of thinking. Rational must outweigh irrational. Justice must outweigh injustice. Love must outweigh hate. If you put yourself in someone else's shoes and you don't like how it feels - that's when you know things need to change," Lawrence posted. "I'm siding with my brothers that deal, and continuously deal, with things I will never experience. The injustice is clear... and so is the hate. It can no longer be explained away. If you're still 'explaining' it - check your heart and ask why." Lawrence not only posted on social media about there needing to be a change, he took steps towards trying to make a difference. - The State
