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.

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"

SUITE
"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»

[Thread] Ok. I should be doing work, but because of Anger Yam's latest atrocity against the foundations of our state, I have to say a couple of things about this Gallagher mess which is an insult to all Americans and all those who have served.

Current status at the White House:
PART I. The latest news from the Gallagher case is that the Secdef has fired the Secnav for allegedly going seeking a deal that would allow Gallagher to retire with his trident (i.e. as a Navy SEAL), avoiding losing it in a scheduled admin hearing.

Who is Eddie Gallagher? A war criminal. There is really no reasonable doubt on that count. He escaped major prosecution due to some courtroon shenanigans and technicalities.

You HAVE TO WATCH THIS!

SOOO many questions answered!

Who really owns the NBA?

Why does Nike hate Trump? And America?

Is Kaepernick just a dumb pawn?

Jason Whitlock continues

"The #NBA exists to sell shoes!"

The #NBAChina is beholden to Nike!

Nike's hatred of @POTUS is all about #TPP & Trump's cancellation of it.

Remember when #Obama
went to NIKE HEADQUARTERS to talk TPP?

How weird is that?

(Obama loves him some NBA basketball 😉 - maybe even more than America)

Lets all admit superbowl ads are actually trash, ok?
Why are these medieval people in this beer ad talking about who they would have to eat when they have a giant barrel of corn syrup that could probably sustain them for like a decade?

MAKES NO SENSE.
They're making a Fast and Furious movie without Vin Diesel?? this is 100% B.S.

In a blow to the N.F.L., an arbitrator has ruled that Colin @Kaepernick7's collusion case can proceed because he has produced sufficient evidence that the league and its owners colluded to keep the free-agent quarterback off the field #takeaknee
nyti.ms/2wuEieD
Arbitrator sends Colin #Kaepernick's grievance against the NFL to trial, denying the league's request to throw out the quarterback's claims that owners conspired to keep him out of the league because of his protests of social injustice #takeaknee espn.com/nfl/story/_/id…
"N.F.L. teams have signed players who have beaten their spouses and run operations that killed dogs for sport, but protesting during the national anthem may prove to be the unforgivable sin, it seems."

Colin #Kaepernick is not going away #TakeAKnee

(THREAD) Why I - (a flag-waver) - support #Kaepernick & #TakeAKnee.
This is the flag that draped my father’s coffin. He was a WWII vet. 1/
