Pro Bowl NFL cornerback Marlon Humphrey shut down a July 4 attempt to smear the United States by Rep. Cori Bush (D., Mo.), a far-left member of Congress who said "black people still aren't free" in the country.
"I feel free lol," the Baltimore Ravens star—a black man who was raised in Alabama—wrote in response to Bush.

Bush, a self-proclaimed former pastor who has been trained in the controversial art of faith healing, has aligned herself with the extremist members of the "Squad" in her first months as a congresswoman. Her anti-American message that July 4 is only a holiday for white people put her to the left of even Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.), who participated in an Independence Day parade in her home district over the holiday weekend.
"When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people," Bush wrote. "This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free."
Humphrey was drafted by the Ravens in 2017 after two years at the University of Alabama. During last year's season, Humphrey signed a $98.75 million contract extension, making him one of the highest-paid players in football.
