Brandon Marshall, a former NFL wide receiver, was harassed this week when a security detail outside his new home called the police on him while he was trying to move in. The incident was captured on video.
According to Marshall, a security detail had called the police on him because they allegedly didn’t believe he belonged on the premises.
“It’s Real!!! I was so disappointed in myself for getting so emotional with my kids in the car BUT then I realized that being numb isn’t an option anymore,” Marshall wrote in the caption of his video.
In a subsequent video, Marshall expanded on this thoughts regarding the incident.
“I’ve been watching and processing the same injustice and unrest as you all the last few months,” he said. “We have experienced this pain our entire life. The awareness and conversations being started by protests are great, but it can’t end there. I’m tired of talking that leads to nowhere. I’m calling on powerful networks to take a chance and showcase the most important message in our country right now.”
“The path toward real change flows through the ballot box,” he continued. “The power belongs in the people’s hands. I’m not telling you to vote or who to vote for. I’m reminding you that you CAN vote. It is your RIGHT to have your voice heard.”
