Kansas City fans told on themselves by booing NFL’s moment of unity

You want to know how Dis-United the United States of America is currently?

A group of athletes of different races and various backgrounds stood together, linked arms and asked for “a moment of silence dedicated to the ongoing fight for equality in our country."

What’d they get for it?

An “atta boy” and a pat on the back? Maybe a “keep up the good fight, young fellas”?

No, they didn’t get any of that. They got booed, not by everyone, but by enough of the 17,000 fans inside Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium for the TV audience to hear it and for some players on the field to recognize it.
