Imagine being one of the women that George Floyd assaulted. Imagine seeing the man who mugged you at gunpoint held being honored by the NFL after he died. Imagine seeing an NFL team awarding a scholarship in the name of that criminal.
That's exactly what happened earlier this month, when The Minnesota Vikings awarded the first “George Floyd Legacy Scholarship."
The team awarded Meredith "Mimi" Kol-Balfour with $5,000 in the name of Floyd. A scholarship they intend to continue to granting each year. The team also expanded their “Social Justice Committee” as the team owner, Zygi Wilf, dedicated another $5 million to “organizations that work for social justice."
“After the killing of George Floyd, we all got together, we thought it was very important for our organization to create this legacy scholarship and honor his name. This scholarship will go on and on forever,” General Manager Rick Spielman said. “Our Social Justice Committee is driven by the players with the support of our ownership, not only financially, but supporting the players on their platform and giving them an opportunity to go out and make change, which is so desperately needed in this country today.”
The Viking aren't the only ones partaking in honoring a criminal. Several NFL players made a video claiming that they "are George Floyd" and others killed by police.
According to USA Today, numerous other professional sports teams and athletes have made similar statements.
