Malcolm Jenkins' Criminal Justice Season

This week, the Eagles safety goes on CNN to talk about his efforts to make America better

On Wednesday night, I was a guest on CNN’s Town Hall: Patriotism, The Players & the President, a discussion moderated by Anderson Cooper. As I told Anderson, one thing that’s been missing in all the recent noise has been the real issues, and I went on to try and summarize them. Our protests are not about the flag, our military, or even the president; it’s about us, concerned citizens, trying to use our platform to make things better in America. 

Check out my segment below, and also click here to watch the full roundtable discussion that featured, among others, Spike Lee and former Pittsburgh Steeler Hines Ward.
