John Legend speaks on Colin Kaepernicka��s protest and Nate Parker

a recent interview withA�ComplexA�touting his new musical,A�La La Land, John Legend opened up on the controversy surrounding Nate Parker to the protests spearheaded by Colin Kaepernicka��s decision not to stand for the national anthem.

When asked about Kaepernicka��s protest, Legend said, a�?I think ita��s great that hea��s talking about it. I dona��t understand why people are upset. But I do understand, actually. Theya��re always upset when you protest these things. People only like it in retrospecta��. Theya��ll police your protest more than the things youa��re protesting against, which is the real [source of] oppression. I feel like people are doing the same thing with Kaepernick.a�?

He later added, a�?The reality is hea��s protesting black men and womena��people of colora��getting shot by police when theya��re unarmed, and those police facing no consequences. Just think how tragic that is for a society: that the state can kill you with no repercussions. We see it on videoa��we know the person is unarmed, poses no threata��and theya��re killed with no repercussions. Think about how corrosive that is for a society if we allow that to continue to happen? Youa��re upset that hea��s kneeling down in peaceful protest, but youa��re not upset by what hea��s protesting against?a�?

He also spoke to Nate Parkera��s comments following the reemergence of the controversy surrounding a 17-year-old rape case against him. Parker has spoken about never having learned consent.
