Baker Mayfield plans to kneel as a sign of solidarity with black players in the NFL and he doesn’t care if he’s going to lose fans because of it.

After hearing criticism for saying on Instagram he would be protesting racism and police brutality by taking a knee during the national anthem, the Browns’ lighting rod of a quarterback explained the reason, referencing what former NFL player and Green Beret Nate Boyer told Colin Kaepernick in 2016.

“Everybody so upset about my comment doesn’t understand the reasoning behind kneeling in the first place,” Mayfield wrote on his Instagram story. ”Nate and Kap came to an agreement that kneeling was the most respectful way to support our military while also standing up for equality.

“I have the utmost respect for our military, cops, and people that serve our country. It’s about equality and everybody being treated the same because we’re all human. It’s been ignored for too long and that is my fault as well for not becoming more educated and staying silent. If I lose fans, that’s okay. I’ve always spoken my mind. And that’s from the heart.”

On Saturday, Mayfield posted a video on Instagram of him working out in an “I can’t breathe” shirt. A fan responded by writing, “please tell Browns fans you’re not going to be kneeling this season.” Mayfield told him: “pull your head out. I absolutely am.”
