They are not protesting against the flag, the anthem or the troops.
And just because a race-baiting president says it, that doesn't make it so.
But predominantly Black players who nonviolently protest violence are sons of bitches?
Anyone who doesn't see the transparent race-baiting isn't paying attention
Just because it's an effective political tactic doesn't make it right.
It's transparent fomenting of racial strife for better number. Never right!
His definition of true patriotism only works if we accept his definitions. I do not
Nonviolently asking for a more just society is very American
I don't find those mutually exclusive. I find them part and parcel of being an active, engaged American citizen.
Especially when those others are being diminished simply for asking American to live up to its promise and highest values.
But if a rich Black man silently asks for fair police treatment, they are somehow against this nation?
It's bullshit. And even Trump himself knows it.
Want to talk about the severely raw deal that African-Americans have historically received at hands of police?
But that doesn't make it right. It doesn't make it morally correct. And anyone who cites poll numbers is on the wrong side of history.
Our elections were tampered by a foreign adversary, but instead you want to talk to me about football players kneeling?
But instead you'd rather focus on the perceived lack of patriotism of a player protesting police brutality?
Seriously? Is that really what we've become? Seriously?
Trump knows this has nothing to do with the troops. He just knows that attacking rich Black guys is good for his brand.
I can't believe people fall for such a cynical ploy.
It may be good politics. But it's bad, bad morality.
This is what it’s about. This is what it’s always been about.
It has everything to do with dividing Americans along racial lines.
And it always has.
