Pretty basic indeed.

You don't see any issues with the way things are.

These folks do.

The amazing thing about America is that you both get to voice your opinions.


No, no they don't.

With such a huge platform as the streets and the NFL, twitter and youtube, you would think the message would be clear.

But, nope, it's just cops bad, everyone must change so our thugs can run around and not get shot by police.

Nevermind their "hoods" breed them.

LOL ... keep talking.

You make your actual position more clear with every post.

What about the White House. An infinitely larger platform. At least Trump is clear. "I don't give a damn about your concerns." Maybe that attitude is why there are protests.

I'll make my own position clear.

I have zero problem with black people.

I could careless about thugs.

I cant stand that black people allow their culture to be ruined the way it has.

Their silence has brought this on them.

It's not my job to fix it for them, or care when thugs get shot by cops.

NOW you understand the protests.




I'm going to protest the fact I can't buy eggs from a butcher on a public holiday during a leap year, at 2am.

I'll wear a pirate shirt, and do a line dance at the Canadian embassy while reciting an ode to my haggis.. That should get me all the support I need, those bloody Irish chinese people denying me my spaghetti given rights as a half crab, half sloth human entity on my most precious.

And if anyone gives me any guff, you're a racist.

This idea is so dumb it befits Trump.

To punish someone for what some one else does is the height of folly.

These owners are not responsible for the actions and beliefs of their players. This is merely passive protest.

Its a free country and people should NOT be compelled to partake of a national ritual if they don’t want to, for whatever reason

Then perhaps you should stand during the Anthem, rather than kneeling, and for god's sake get over what other people are doing that causes you ZERO pain.

Ruined by whom?

Black peoples culture was ruined when they were enslaved and deprived of a natural developmental way of existence.


Any black culture subsequent to that is American culture.

It's not them kneeling that I exactly have issue with.

It's the "why".

If they had a bigger message, then fine.

Kneeling based on a BS narrative, just no.

And again, who cares?

Their statements aren't bothering you, taking anything away from you, harming you, etc. You've expressed your opinion every time this comes up, or anything remotely connected to the idea.

I just wonder why other people's beliefs (which is what we're talking about, your beliefs versus theirs) bother you?

It's the repetitive droning narrative that makes no sense.

Not to mention, a lot of these people happily wave the flag of a nation that killed several hundred thousand Americans. But then they feign outrage when someone won't stand for the American flag, as if their own gesture isn't a slap in the face to the American flag.


I live in south Mississippi and travel for work. The only Nazi flag I have ever seen in my entire life was flying in someone's front yard just outside of Chicago.

Your world must be horrible with all those Nazi flags flying around.

And IF there's this uproar in the black community, it's staggering that it's not as protested as "police bad".



No. It means they agree with the protests and not your assessment.


Yes,they agree with mental people protesting for a fake narrative.
And that's why they agree, it's easy. They get to avoid having to admit blame ls with the black community.

But no, no , no cant have that.

So,whitey bad,police bad, America bad, and it's everyone elses fault but theirs.

Ok,got it.





In Albuquerque, the Justice Department determined that most police shootings from 2009 to 2012 had been unjustified.



In Seattle, federal investigators found that one out of every five use-of-force episodes had been excessive. In Albuquerque, the Justice Department determined that most police shootings from 2009 to 2012 had been unjustified.




“The dominant narrative has been that this happens to African-Americans because they are arrested in disproportionate numbers,” said Phillip Atiba Goff, a founder and president of the Center for Policing Equity, based at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. “But the data really makes it difficult to say that crime is the primary driver of this. In every single category, the anti-black disparity persists.”

BS in your eyes and apparently Trumps as well. It's not BS to them.

Well so far the League and Seahawks organization are permitting it. So he can, at this time, do it on their time, in an NFL uniform on the job.

I think it's a good thing to find a private sector employee with the opportunity to exercise his Constitutional rights.

I've heard two versions of events in regards to the Las Vegas incident (which is a separate matter). In one, which I read on cbs, I would agree that he was acting like an idiot (if Bennett waited behind a row of gaming machines until Police were in sight and then proceeded to run and hop the wall into the street). The other, which I read on Slate, says:


The basic facts of the case are not really in dispute. In the hours after last month’s boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, police officers swept through the Cromwell Hotel & Casino after getting reports of an active shooter. Bodycam footage released by the department shows cops shouting “everybody out,” and instructing crowds to “move it!” As Bennett fled with the rest of the crowd amid this chaos, an officer shouted, “There’s one running! There’s one running!” Police gave chase and one officer wondered aloud, in apparent reference to Bennett, “Did he have a gun?” Bennett did not have a gun, and there was in fact no active shooter.


The above scenario (in which Bennett runs at the same time as the rest of the crowd and hops the wall) could lend credence to Bennett's claims. I assume the investigation by the LVPD will determine which scenario is true.

I couldn't find anywhere that Bennett claims they were racist white cops. He said the police encounter was racially motivated. Hispanics are capable of being racist.

Mr. Trump?

Bite me. As an original Seahawk fan(atic), I will follow them through thick, and thin (lot of thin, over the years...), we have at least one player who kneels during the anthem.

It is his right to express his feelings in this way. It's peaceful, non-disruptive, and makes his point. More power to him. It matters not in the slightest whether I agree or disagree, it's his right to do this.

So, to reiterate...

Mr. Trump? Bite me.


And it's also the right of NFL fans to boycott teams whose players show disrespect to our nations flag. Much better men than these coddled millionaires playing a game, have died for the flag. It's amazing the NFL fined players in 2001 for wearing "Never Forget" 9-11 sneakers to memorialize the victims, yet have no problem letting the snowflake players kneel during the anthem. It's no coincidence NFL ratings are declining. People want to be entertained, not players drawing attention to themselves making political statements. So to use your words: NFL players kneeling during the anthem? Bite me.

Meanwhile people are fired at regular jobs for personal Facebook posts. Carry on the idea that these are "protected rights", Roger Goodell.


Rules for us, not for them...

So, wait, are you in favor of Employers' right to fire or not?
