Whether you agree with the protests or not, as a free society the President has no place to scold the NFL over the way they run their business. This is just more big government telling everyone how to live and absolutely sticking its nose where it doesn't belong.

What's ironic is that the protests by players were dying down, there were only a select few individuals still kneeling. But, instead of letting it go away Trump saw an opportunity to strengthen the racial divide and rally his base of white nationalist. Now, the end result is a level of protests that we would never have seen had Trump kept out.

In regards to the protest itself. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that white Trump supporters are outraged over black athletes kneeling during the anthem. "It's disrespectful". Yet, these same people are silent when white supremacists are flying the confederate flag. Is it not disrespectful to the men who died defeating that flag, sacrificing everything to unite the country? Is it not disrespectful to fly a flag that runs contrary to what America stands for? Shouldn't MAGA include uniting everyone under one flag? Except of course, unity was never the goal for Trump or his supporters.

This entire situation proves what Trump and his core base are all about. Their mentality, rhetoric and agenda places them as direct enemies to all non-white Americans.

But, these people showing their true colors was a much needed wake up call. As we see in the other thread about this topic, we have someone happy that black players are taking a knee as it shows they're being subservient to their superiors. This is the type of racism that led to the protests in the first place and why they were necessary. If the end result is less minorities who are naive, then it was all worth it.

Nah... Tell them they want to play sports in a stadium they can buy the one they're using or build their own. No more public finance of a sport. Watch how fast those salaries lose a digit...

"And now, It's time to go over the carefully selected stories that have been chosen to manipulate your emotions and thinking."



Those spoiled rotten million dollar plus Black players are complaining about racism with the Bend The Knee protest. Are they now so dumb that they don't realize that none of them would have made it to superstar status if the system were actually racist?


How many rich Blacks are sponsoring those teams, buying the expensive 50 yard line tickets and leasing the private boxes that pay for those inflated contracts?


Given now that the lawsuits are starting over the concussion injuries, the drug abuse, and general overall violent behavior of those that are suppose to be role models for their communities, NFL players are continuing to turn off the paying public to their sport. Which is a dirty shame that those pros that have not been seduced by this BS are being dragged down to the same level as the militants. (In fear they will be called Racist or Uncle Toms.)



In Short;


Watch or attend a good Big Ten collage game. Those are far more exciting then those spoiled rotten pros playing football.

That's the NFL rules.
That's fascism.

Clearly the NFL has lost it's way.

Trump didnt bring anything about, this pre-dates his presidency by a year.
So before his AL speech and his tweet storm this was a raging issue? Nope. A couple dozen players.... now, smoke screen issue for President Trump to distract his base from the failure to produce what he campaigned on.

Now the thuggery has even gotten to the level of college football.

I have tried all my life to remain free from bigotry, racism and all the "horrible" little things that make us "evil" and unworthy of social comment. I have failed. Over a half century of effort and I have failed.

Those blacks that could, did. All we are left with are those who "did not" and gripe about it.

I could be wrong. Won't be the first time, but imagine if not only myself but many others have come to the same conclusion. Maybe it's just that some of us are just a little tired of all the whining.

In the immortal words of a store manager my wife once worked for: "I can't be racist, I'm black!" (....and was later fired for theft!)

IT AIN'T ME! (If not, then whom?)

And you know that spouse abuse in Pro-Sports is worse then in the general population or are you just making a blind assumption? Could just be that it makes national news.....
