Baltimore Ravens football player Benjamin Watson appeared on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File” Thursday night to comment on the latest police shootings in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Charlotte, North Carolina.
“One of the biggest things that we have to be able to do is handle conflict and handle it correctly,” Watson told host Megyn Kelly.”[When] we’re able to look at our biases, look at our frustrations, look at our sin in this area, our pride and our selfishness, it allows us to move forward.
“What doesn’t allow us to move forward is when we simply….get in our corners and call names and turn our back to eachother. That doesn’t help anyone.
“But when we’re able to confront it, we’re able to understand that Obama can’t save us. Mrs. Clinton can’t save us. Mr. Trump can’t save us. The only one who can change the heart of man is the Lord.”
Watson continued, with comments about what we are seeing in Charlotte, North Carolina. “What we’re seeing here in Charlotte is wrong. There shouldn’t be any looting or anything like that, but what we’re seeing is a lot of frustration.”
Watson is the author of “Under Our Skin.”
