Herschel Walker, a Heisman Trophy winner and member of the College Football Hall of Fame who went on to play twelve seasons in the NFL, posted a video on Twitter on Sunday taking American professional sports leagues to task for their approach to Black Lives Matter.

“America wake up,” Walker says in his tweet, “if we love our Country, let’s speak up, stand up and protect it.”

In the video attached to the tweet, Walker said he had seen a people holding a BLM sign burning the Bible.

“For the first time in a long time I stopped in the middle of my work-out because last night I saw something that really, really disturbed me,” Walker said. “I saw a bunch of people holding a BLM sign burning the Holy Bible, burning the flag of the United States of America, also burning the cross.

“And I started thinking,” he continued, “that NFL, NBA, WNBA, MLB: Is this the people you are supporting right now, is it the movement, is it the organization, because I don’t think that’s right.”

Here is a transcript of what Herschel Walker says on the video he tweeted out on Sunday:

“For the first time in a long time I stopped in the middle of my work-out because last night I saw something that really, really disturbed me. I saw a bunch of people holding a BLM sign burning the Holy Bible, burning the flag of the United States of America, also burning the cross. And I started thinking that NFL, NBA, WNBA, MLB: Is this the people you are supporting right now, is it the movement, is it the organization, because I don’t think that’s right. You know, maybe Washington, we can’t not continue to sweep stuff underneath the rug because sooner or later we are going to stumble. People are we being fooled.”
