Key Words: Hank Aaron supports athletes who snub the White House, use fame to speak out

‘I can understand where the players are coming from. I really do. I understand they have their own issues and things they feel conviction about. They have a right to that, and I probably would be the same way, there’s no question about it.’

–Hank Aaron

That’s the 84-year-old MLB Hall of Famer on athletes turning their professional sports platform into a political loudspeaker.

Aaron, when asked, said he wasn’t so interested in visiting the White House either, if ever asked: “There’s nobody there I want to see,” he said at a ceremony for the Hank Aaron Champion for Justice Awards, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
