Randy Moss made a powerful statement about police brutality and abuse of minorities during his induction into the Pro Football Hall Of Fame.
The retired wide receiver wore a tie to the ceremony that listed black men and women killed by police in recent years, including Sandra Bland, Freddie Gray, Alton Sterling, Michael Brown and 12-year-old Tamir Rice. Moss referenced Uncle Ben’s famous “Spiderman” speech in an interview with the NFL Network after the ceremony, implying that his platform comes with “great responsibility.”
“What I wanted to express with my tie was to let these families know they’re not alone,” Moss said in the interview. “I’m not here voicing, but by having these names on my tie, in a big platform like the Pro Football Hall of Fame, there’s a lot of stuff going on in our country and I just wanted these family members to know they’re not alone.”
