    As a white person, I ask can every white person who engages with these issues try this: 


    When a ton of black people tell us something is wrong,


    that they are facing racism and inequality,


    instead of dismissing them or marginalizing their concerns to death via a million semantic arguments, false equivalencies, moved goalposts, etc.,


    can we just try and see it their way once?  What does it cost us to just listen?


    Can we also understand that when we tell them:


    - race has nothing to do with X

    - to keep their politics out of X public forum

    - that this country is the greatest in the world, anyone complaining doesn't know how good they really have it, and if they don't like it they can get the **** out


    that it sounds like we're telling black people to shut up and know their place?  That we are gaslighting them.

    No..follow the rules..ALL Players/Coaches and staff


    The NFL rule book specifically requires both teams appear on the field for the playing of the anthem, standing, remaining quiet, and holding their helmets in their left hands. Failure to do so can result in fines, suspensions, and the loss of draft picks. 

    The rules are found on pages A62-63 of the league’s game operations manual:

    The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.

    During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.

  2. "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

    Solders SWEAR allegiance at induction. Solders have died to keep the flag from falling or being captured, NEW Citizens have to swear allegiance facing the flag.

    WHAT have these spoiled athletes done to have the RIGHT to denigrate it?

    Oh, say can you see,
    By the dawn's early light,
    What so proudly we hailed,
    At the twilight's last gleaming?
    Whose broad stripes and bright stars,
    Through the perilous fight,
    O'er the ramparts we watched,
    Were so gallantly streaming.
    And the rocket's red glare,
    The bombs bursting in air,
    Gave proof through the night,
    That our flag was still there
    Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave,
    For the land of the free, and the home of the brave.


    I am sick of people with NO CLUE telling ME to bend over and take it because "they" FEEL oppressed in the freest nation on earth while "earning"- and I use that term sarcastically MILLIONS of dollars and doing NOTHING in their community to fight the plights of the poor,uneducated, unemployed and desperate. MANY of these "activists" who promote GANG affiliation, drug use, unwed procreation and support and gangster rap culture.

    Fire em, Fine em and give US a break from their BS
