  • i dont really know anything about that
  • It is sad that anyone is paid millions of dollars to play a children's game, and it is foolish to protest against the nation that does such stupid things. Where else would he be a millionaire? He has no sensible protest. It is just manufactured. It is appalling to see NFL CEOs cater to him and his mindless imitators. Few of them can give coherent reasons for kneeling.

      They're paid millions because people pay to go see them. Same thing with Hollywood. They get millions because people pay to see the movies. Sometimes we're our own worst enemies.

      Sensible people must boycott the NFL and Hollywood.
  • Professional sports has created more black millionaires than any other industry. Funny how they say it's racist. And if it is so racist, I want to see more white players, no matter their skill level, since the white folks seem to be underrepresented on the field.
  • Yeah, where is slavery when you need it?
    • Linda Joy
      Many people are slaves today! Many in the sex trades. "More than 40 million people were estimated to be victims of modern slavery in 2016 -- and one in four of those were children." Too bad nobody cares about the REAL problems in the world because of BS crap like this NON ISSUE talking attention away from REAL ISSUES!
  • Taking a knee is about raising awareness that predominantly unarmed black men are still being shot in the back or choked to death by police and the justice system often turns a blind eye to these deadly uses of force. As it happens again and again without consequence. The media narrative often ignores the purpose of exposing this deadly institutional prejudice.
    • Archie Bunker
      Cops have a much higher chance of being killed by a black man than a black man has of being killed by the cops. It's a fake narrative. Quit drinking the KoolAid

      I suppose these were law abiding citizens in their homes helping their children with their homework and the cops broke in and killed them? I'm not buying it! Blacks commit more crime per capita than any other race. If they weren't out committing crimes cops wouldn't mess with them. And Archie is right. A cop is 18.5 Times more likely to be killed by a black man than vice versa.

      You are wrong. Unarmed black thugs attack cops and try to take their guns, so they are shot. Such force is justified. Blacks commit the most crimes by far and many of them hate laws and cops, so they start fights with them while insane with rage. Blacks kill one anothr and cops. You are wrong.

      When the discussion over generalizes using one example while ignoring the incidences of excessive use of (deadly) force and ethnic profiling is like choosing to count only oranges and argue that there are no apples. And sometimes in the case of my friends 25yo son with mental health issues made the paper when the DA was quoted in the headline "Officer Justified in Killing Unarmed Handcuffed Man" (even with 3 officers present.) This young man was white so the problem extends to how some officers perform particularly under duress. Ethnic prejudice amplifies this. And when the law excuses the public cases caught on video, there remain a blatant injustice to be wrestled with. Hats off to the large multitude of officers that work with very difficult and sometime life threatening circumstances. The fact is that ethnic prejudice is deeply rooted in our society of which none of us are above. May we at least move toward "equal protection under the law" and prosecute the bad "apples and oranges" no matter the color of their skin or position of power.
    • ReiSan
      You are doing what you accuse someone else of doing. Blacks commit the most crimes and are the majority in prison. Any time a black thug starts trouble with a cop that he passionately hates and is shot as he deserves, the blacks mindlessly chant, "Racism".
  • The truth is he won't be taking a knee if groups didn't pay him to tax free.
    • Linda Joy
      They aren't anymore!
