And what has it become? Trump tweets about them being sacked, so all and sundry kneel. Far from being about racial divide now, isn't it.

The hypocrisy is HUGE
A bunch of one percenters crying bout income inequality and racism.
When American athletics is dominated by millionaire minorities.
Mount Everest of hypocrisy.

Seems to me that most of your posts rely on conjecture and offering nothing in the way of real information.
Oh, and of course, you use these forums to berate and belittle folks as well.
Whatever makes the world go round for you. All it tells me is that you have no life, if you spend most of it here bullying others.

As I said when this started.. this is fake outrage, sparked by Trump's comments. His flock seem to remain passive about something until he inflames them.. and suddenly, it becomes a big deal. From "fake media" and now kneeling at the anthem.. it went from a couple years of "ho hum" to "omg selling season tickets burning my hat omg the disrespect!" Please...
Why does something only become a huge deal after Trump tweets it? Are people too dim to figure this stuff out for themselves? They need a reality tv show clown of a POTUS to point it out first?
# of terrorist attacks by immigrants before Trump: ZERO - Trump says.. "Stop flights from countries! Expel illegals! We are all in danger!".. and people believe it. Omg stealing our tomato and grape picking jobs get rid of them all! Save us! All his followers flock to his call.
# of media outlets that always reported with a biased slant.. with typically true news, but told with an agenda: All of them. Trump tweets "Fake news!".. and suddenly, ONLY liberal biased news sources suddenly report FALSE news on a daily basis.
% of people outraged at kneeling athletes over the last couple of years to the point of selling tickets, burning jerseys, boycotting the NFL: Probably less than 1%. Trump says "They are disrespecting our flag and soldiers!".. and suddenly, the sheep flock to his call, and omg the disrespect.. it's disgraceful!!
I often scoff at the stupid "sheeple" comment.. but man, here.. it seems to really apply. It's sad you need this dude to tell you how to think. Or how to actually express how you feel.

Well yeah, 99% of people don't stand. That's inaction. Kneeling is a conscious decision to say "F you" the people that fought for your country, and Europe, etc.

you´re going to have a heart attack if you continue your mad dog raging attacks and assumptions. You interpret way to much into everyones posts but I guess you need it that way so you can be outraged.
