Super Bowl MVP-Patrick Mahomes is on the cover of the August edition of GQ. Coming off a Superbowl championship with the Kansas City Chiefs and signing a record-breaking contrac extension with the team, Mahomes touched on several topics. He spoke about how people accuse him of not being Black because he has a white mother. He will get pulled over by police just like anybody else from the neighborhood. Mahomes also touched on how he has become the face of the NFL and having a conversation with league commissioner Roger Goodell about change after the death of George Floyd.
I really hope Patrick Mahomes will be a strong voice on and off the field for years to come. With the majority of the players being Black, it’s a shame the NFL is so late on social justice issues.
