‘Leadership starts with the FAMILY’ – FULL interview with NFL player Benjamin Watson on Ferguson

I really like New Orleans Saints’ tight end Benjamin Watson’s really honest and thoughtful statements on race relations in America – he doesn’t dismiss that there’s a problem, but he puts it in a very substantive and meaningful perspective that hearkens back to a religious worldview.

Watch below:

Amazingly, he even says that education isn’t always the answer, and he’s right. As C.S. Lewis says, education without character just makes for “more clever devils.” Watson speaks to our sinful nature that is the root of the problem. God bless him, I wish we had more voices like his in the black community, and in EVERY American community.

Here’s his original statement that went viral on Facebook.
