You're still deflecting? Lol. I thought you were on about Wall St and Big Pharma. Now you deflected to inequality?

I know what it is. Minorities are victims of inequality, so much so to the point Asians are the top earners in America and out-earn the evil white man.


That's cool. If you can't see the correlation to the racist practices of the biggest money makers in the US and why pro athletes kneel during the national anthem than I can't help you.


Lol. You should pivot to aliens next.

BTW, they're not kneeling to protest Big Pharma, they're kneeling to protest black lives not mattering enough.


Aliens, as far as I know, aren't racists.

Now to your second point, just use your head for a minute and think...why would they feel lie their lives don't matter enough? Just go nuts and throw some stuff out.


Because the number one cause of death for young black men is murder by other young black men, and the media and culture ignores this?


No. But there is a reason that stat exists and it isn't because blacks are some subhuman animals.


Who said they were.

Let me try again then.

Do they feel that their lives don't matter because they are treated like children by some that do not give them the dignity of having personal responsibilty?

As we are learning stats can be bought for the right price form professors and so called experts. So we should be so quick to support stats Remember the Hockey Stick global warming stats, later proven to be false. Just a reminder.

And what are they protesting? Too many black criminals get themselves shot? (AKA violent black criminals should get to run amok)


They also may protest the white criminals, WHO NEVER GET CAUGHT, who did 911, the fake Iraq war and the 2008 depression.


Name a single athlete protesting 911 or the Iraq war.

I'll wait.

I think the baseball player guy you were referencing thinks they are animals.

I don't know what you are trying to say with that last part. I know a lot of idiots who are not personally responsible and most of them wouldn't take on the personal responsibility of putting their jobs on the line to speak up about the injustices done to them. See how I did that?

It's kind of funny seeing people who supposedly champion free speech vowing to boycott the NFL in hopes of silencing the players protest.

This couldn't have worked better. The players of one of the most popular sports in America have exposed the glaring hypocrisy in a huge chunk of the population, with one move. Bravo.

And right on to everyone who sat out the anthem or took a knee today. I applaud you for not letting a politician bully you into doing something against your conscience.



And here we are again.

How does disagreeing or boycotting something equal not believing in free speech?


Isn't the point of the boycott to cause a dip in revenue and force the owners to make the players not protest? To stop them protesting the anthem (exercising their free speech) and bend to your will of how you believe they should act?

A person that respected the players freedom of speech would let them have their protest, then watch the game and move on with life. Not start foaming at the mouth with the intentions of tanking the NFL if the players don't stop protesting.


I don't think you understand freedom of speech.

So if I chose to not watch fox news, and tell others also to stop watching, because I think they are biased, I am disrespecting free speech?

That is ridiculous.

Fox news isn't a person. So, not the same thing.

If you started a boycott campaign against the hosts of a Fox news show with the goal of forcing Fox News to make them stop expressing a particular opinion, then yes, you would be.

That's what is happening here.


No people are suggesting boycotting the NFL over allowing what the see as offensive acts.

Much in the same way that fox may have been boycotted over things Sean Hannity said.

Again, boycotting is a form of protest.

Why do you celebrate the protest you like, but decry the protest you disgree with as anti free speech?

These people and many others of different races in the US are like this because they are raised on the Nanny State Indoctrination System called the public school system.

So we don't have the freedom NOT to watch football.

Oh dear Jesus.

You jumped the shark.

I have no legal bailment that requires me to watch another person's protest. They have the right to protest, sure, but do it when not at work. The idea that they somehow get to hold the enjoyment of a football game hostage unless someone watches their silly protest (which again is not really a protest but a temper tantrum because they have no real demands) is ludicrous.

If these players want to protest, go buy a commercial spot during the game (which they are some of the precious few who could afford to do so) or find a street corner and a picket sign. Go play their game like they are being paid to do. I'm not paying them (through ticket sales or TV ratings) to throw their temper fit. It's not their job.

If you asshats put as much time, energy and money into # that really mattered instead of watching and worshipping this glorified public distraction you might get some things done.

No clevenger said the blm people rioting and those supporting them were animals.

What I meant by my last sentence was that some people claim that it's not black people's fault they commit crime, or that black people can't be racist, or that black people need special treatment to achieve in schoo l or the work place.

You know, treating them like chdren with no responsibility that need to be protected.

Yes, if I was black, that would offend me and make me question of those doing that thought my life mattered.

How long do you figure the National Anthem takes? You don't have to watch.
Go cook up some nachos.

Two time NBA MVP Steve Nash got attacked for his public stance on the Iraq war.


Nash's comments provoked a fierce reaction in the media, particularly by journalists outraged that a professional athlete had the temerity to express an political opinion. ESPN gadfly Skip Bayless, then of the San Jose Mercury News, told Nash to "shut up and play" and reminded readers that basketball players "are paid money because they serve as an escape." Dave Krieger of the Rocky Mountain News, meanwhile, said that athletes "seldom know what they're talking about."


Glad you didn't have to wait very long.

This is the most petty crap I've witnessed in sports to date.

Most of us are wired to need a temporary distraction. One of my favorite distractions has become a divisive and politically infused fiasco.

Not cool. If it lasts much longer I am out.

My point was to contrast “black criminals” with “white criminals” whose crimes are never even dealt with


I’m sure there are athletes with some consciousness. They actually have too much at stake to even come out much with involvement in social issues in that a professional football player is so prone to injury and a short career. They have a small window to make some money and retire without getting all their bones broke or their brains fried
