Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson appeared on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File” Thursday to discuss the recent police shootings of black men in Tulsa and Charlotte.
Watson, who is on injured reserve this year, said people need to learn how to correctly handle conflict and look at themselves in order for the country to move forward.
“One of the biggest things that we have to be able to do is handle conflict and handle it correctly,” Watson told host Megyn Kelly. “[When] we’re able to look at our biases, look at our frustrations, look at our sin in this area, our pride and our selfishness, it allows us to move forward.”
He added that people dividing themselves up into groups and calling each other names or engaging in violence does not help anything.
“What we’re seeing here in Charlotte is wrong. There shouldn’t be any looting or anything like that, but what we’re seeing is a lot of frustration,” Watson said.
