Apparently, the Seahawks being GIVEN A TRIP TO THE SUPER BOWL by the Green Bay Packers can be equated with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the civil rights movement.
The phrase "We shall overcome" can be used to explain Russell Wilson crying after being GIVEN A TRIP TO THE SUPER BOWL by the Green Bay Packers.
The Seahawks deleted the following MLK tweet:
From USA Today:
The Seattle Seahawks appeared to make an awkward misstep in the road leading up to the Super Bowl — on their official Twitter account.The Seahawks apologized for the comparison.
The team’s account tweeted out a photo comparing the team’s struggles to those of the Civil Rights movement, using a photo of a crying Russell Wilson with a Martin Luther King Jr. quote.
We apologize for poor judgment shown in a tweet sent earlier. We did not intend to compare football to the civil rights legacy of Dr. King.— Seattle Seahawks (@Seahawks) January 19, 2015
Then what did you intend to do? Compare Dr. King's legacy to being GIVEN A TRIP TO THE SUPER BOWL by the Green Bay Packers?
Let's imagine that the Packers did not GIVE THE SEAHAWKS THE NFC CHAMPIONSHIP and were on their way to the Super Bowl.
I guarantee that they would not have tweeted a photo from the game and labeled it with "We shall overcome."
