These people mistake our constitutional rights and whom they are with. Your rights are with the government, not private citizens or corporations. Those rights protect me from the government , my employer can fire me for saying something they don't agree with.

Thank you for proving my point, that anyone you disagree with especially when speaking factually you label racist. Way to advance the discussion


It's what happens when you're racist.

Hey, so, uh, about that source for your claim that blacks commit more crimes?

Care to back that up? Or will we just see more crocodile tears about how "evil lil' Romeo on da interwebz called me a racist oh boo hoo I need to take my black people talk elsewhere?"

Source? Citation? Anything?

What constitutes "many?"

A certain percentage? We talking 70%? 55? 45? 30? 15? 10.5?

Specifics.

Back your # up.

Remember they old adage "sticks and stones may break my bones but word will never hurt me". today it is "use sticks and stones and break the bones of all who don't agree with us".

So if Trumps words outrage them they are less of a man than Trump is.


And if kneeling (a silent protest) that lasts just a couple minutes gets your panties in a wad what does that say about you?


You're asking the right questions, but the person (I use that term loosely) you're asking them to.... there's the problem.


Yeah, it's hard to argue with idiocy...and willful ignorance.

so it's a good thing our freedoms are stifled then, to keep the peace.
a little political correctness can be a good thing
Maybe some more freedoms can be stifled a bit..then everyone can just get along

Actually, you didn't. You said....


It is not just disrespectful to the flag and country but it is disrespectful of all those who fought for that flag in Revolution that created this nation, the civil war, WWI, WWII and today under the UN our troops die so people have or may have freedom.


There's an "all", but not a "many".

Argue?

Lol. More like educating.

Some people are just ignorant... they are simply unaware. Now, in this case, it's willful ignorance. They've made a (wrong) claim, and have ran with it despite being proven wrong.

Oh well.

ucr.fbi.gov...

Using your same logic as to why blacks are discriminated when you say they only make up 13% of the population. They only make up 13% of the population yet commit 28% of the crime, where as white as you claim make up 70% of the population and are responsible for 68% of crime. So black in proportion to their population make up are responsible for a disproportionate amount of the crime.

the time they are on is their employers time, their sponsors time and the attendees ticket time. So they show no respect for those who have given the the lucrative paychecks they take home by just showing respect to them and their nation for 3 minutes.

They can protest any other time. But you notice they do it when they are on TV, drawing attention to themselves. Many probable really don't give a hoot as long as they are seen and recognized.

You know why the first player in the 60's spiked the ball instead of placing it in the hands or at the feet of the Ref? The answer is really racial and self adorning more than anything else.

Our society and the socialist driven nanny state indoctrination program is what has made this nation a bunch of "facebook Likes or I die" snowflakes.

Now you're starting to think!

Like I said, if you're going to make not so thinly-veiled racist arguements... at least make them factual?

Say, if blacks made up 60% of the population than blacks would commit more crimes! But also, more blacks would be killed by police than whites.

Starting to see the forest, yet?

Unless you run the commission for the NFL, you're wrong.

They've already confirmed it's within their players right.

Don't like it? Start up a new football league.
