NFL legend Herschel Walker took aim at Joe Biden after the Democratic candidate for president said George Floyd’s death had a greater impact on the world than the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Biden made the comparison during a round table discussion in Philadelphia last week.

Walker, a running back who played in the league for 11 years, most noticeably with the Dallas Cowboys from 1986-1989, took exception with the comparison. And he hammered Biden on his record on helping the black community while he was at it.
“Someone inform [Biden] not to compare the death of Dr. King and George Floyd,” he wrote in a social media post over the weekend. “He has been in office a very long time, and not once has he tried to change anything for black lives.”
Walker then urged followers to simply look at Biden’s record for proof.
Someone inform @JoeBiden not to compare the death of Dr. King and George Floyd. He has been in office a very long time and not once has he tried to change anything for black lives. Look at his voting records! @FoxNews @CNN @realDonaldTrump @POTUS @FoxNews @MSNBC

Capital idea. Let’s examine Biden’s record when it comes to race relations in America.
- Biden worried that de-segregation would cause his children to grow up “in a racial jungle.”
- He has been called the “architect of mass incarceration” by colleagues and called black youths “predators.”
- Biden patronized Barack Obama “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”
- Lest we forget, he told black voters that Mitt Romney – a darling of the Democrat party today – was going to put them all “back in chains.”
Then, of course, there is this: Biden once bragged about receiving an award from George Wallace, said Delaware was on the South’s side in the Civil War, and touted that Delaware was a “slave state” as recently as 2006.

This is the guy, mind you, that the Left wants all Americans to believe will be a great unifier.
Herschel Walker, for his part, has been adamantly opposed to kneeling by NFL players during the national anthem, something that will no doubt increase in the upcoming season directly because of what happened to Floyd.
Walker, who says he’s perfectly content with people who want to demonstrate for equality or injustices, has said pre-game ceremonies involving the American flag are neither the time nor the place.
He called for a rule to be implemented banning taking a knee while the flag is being honored.
Unfortunately, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has gone full social justice warrior, indicating he will encourage protests even while urging teams to sign cop-hater Colin Kaepernick.
