Former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka is in hot water after making a controversial comment about oppression Monday.
"But all the sudden, it's become a big deal now, about oppression. There has been no oppression in the last 100 years that I know of," Ditka said in an interview with Westwood One.
Ditka was responding to a question about NFL players kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial discrimination when he said "you have to be colorblind in this country" and "the opportunity is there for everybody."
