When #ColinKaepernick first took a knee, I was disturbed, disturbed enough to re-read things I hadn't read for awhile, disturbed enough to watch speeches I hadn't seen in awhile, disturbed enough to finally concede that my first disturbed look was that of a white football fan.
When seeing #Trump's tweet last night threatening to use U-S armed forces to shoot #AfAmericans anywhere and everywhere in the U-S, I was disturbed enough to remember how I first felt about #Kaepernick and his knee and apologize to him in my thoughts for my initial reaction.
But today it's time for thoughts to be turned into words. Many people, in my opinion,in various walks of life, owe him an apology. They can make their choices. I've made mine. Dear Mr #Kaepernick You were right, and I was wrong. Your knee spoke from a position of strength.

La vidéo du meurtre d'un homme Noir par un officier de Police Blanc scandalise

Le policier écrase son cou pendant de longues minutes alors qu'il
gémit "Je ne peux pas respirer"

#BlackLivesMatter #PoliceBrutality #MoiAussiJAiPeurDeLaPolice
Minneapolis Police
Le FBI et le Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension enquêtent sur l'incident.

Darnella Frazier qui a tourné la vidéo :
"Une dame (pompier) leur a demandé de vérifier son pouls et ils l'ont complètement ignorée et ont été très désagréables avec elle"…
"Finalement, il a cessé de parler et est devenu silencieux. A ce moment, il avait l'air mort. Il semblait qu'il manquait d'énergie et de temps et était en train de mourir lentement. J'ai déjà vu la police être agressive mais jamais tuer quelqu'un devant moi»

#MeganRapinoe said to Trump last night on @AC360:
‘Your message is excluding people. You’re excluding me. You’re excluding people that look like me. You’re excluding people of color. You’re excluding, you know, Americans that maybe support you.”
#MeganRapinoe said, "I think that we have a responsibility, each and every one of us—you have an incredible responsibility, as the chief of this country—to take care of every single person, and you need to do better for everyone.”
#MeganRapinoe: "I think that this country was founded on a lot of great ideas but it was also founded on slavery...we just need to be really honest about that & be really open in talking about that so we can reconcile that...and make this country better for everyone."

@ByronYork @realDonaldTrump Major US brands have been encouraged to adopt financially suicidal marketing strategies by ultra liberal firms in #PR, principally Edelman via #Edelman100 ranking. The #Nike #ColinKaepernick linkage is amplified in by Edelman marketing collateral.
@ByronYork @realDonaldTrump Rationale for corporate image association is based upon assumption that buyer choices are made based upon ideological concerns, rather than intrinsic features and benefits of product. #Edelman100 is expanded upon in "2018 Earned Brand Global Report"…
@ByronYork @realDonaldTrump Most recent mass market players in the liberally biased "image marketing" shift have been #AmexPride #Gillette and #Nike. While social activism is a vital force in American history, the attachment to corporate marketing strategy may not be in the best interest of shareholders.

For those interested in symbolism..

The Greek's winged goddess NIKE (Victoria) was often intertwined with the story of Athena the goddess of war.

For those interested in connections...…
Symbolism again.

For comparison:

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

Ahem...he sacrificed absolutely nothing. He isn't playing ball because no team wants him. Heck, no one is keeping the NFL from hiring him. He simply isn't good. If was, he would be on a with the kneelers. He isn't kneeling for black lives. #BoycottNike #NFL #ColinKaepernick
#Nike and #ColinKaepernick both setting a bad example for losers. Typical liberal, when they can't win they blame the system. They can never accept defeat gracefully.
Why hasn't he taken the knee for the black lives extinguished in Chicago, Baltimore, Detriot, LA or abortion clinics? #ColinKaepernick only wants to take the knee when it involves playing the race card and he can't win and can't accept defeat. #BoycottNike
