All because The NFL players taking a knee during the anthem while saying they are not protesting the anthem all because the problems they speak of are not widespread or happen often. Tell them to go kneel in Chicago, or Detroit, or LA, where blacks are killing each other in droves. Get to work in their communities and make a difference. Teach young black men to stick around after knocking up the next girl. The black community has enough problems without looking for more. You people have been led to destruction by democrats, who care nothing about you, only about your votes.

Once again the protests are NOT about who is killing who or how many people are being killed.

It's about police killing unarmed people by police and then receiving little to no punishment for doing so.

The killing/ beating of an unarmed person by a police officer, except in the most unusual of circumstances, should result in significant penalties. Running away DOES not justify a use of lethal force.

Blacks are discriminated against daily.
Some stats say a Black man is five times or more likely to be subject to traffic stop than a comparable non-Black driver or White driver.

Our per capita population verifies the discriminatory bias built into the system.

The proportion of Blacks to Whites in jail exceeds that of our national population,
The proportion of Blacks to Whites in prison exceeds that of our jails.
Work your way up that hierarchy, by the time you get to death row, Blacks, though a minority in our whole population, are a majority.

It is not widespread, or common, but because the media sensationalizes it it seems that way. They are laughing all the way to the bank while America burns. You and some others white guilt have made you useful idiots for their narratives.

So you are saying blacks are commiting more heinous crimes what fault do white people have to blame for that, tell black NFL, NBA, players to go and mentor young black men, tell them to stop fathering, then leaving children, that is where the problem lies!

It doesn't need to be "widespread". In the words of MLK Jr., "Injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere"

And again the issue is not, primarily, about the shooting of unarmed black
people by police but that such shootings often result in little or no punishment for the police involved.

Here's a tip for you S:
I'm not foolish enough to fall for that.

If you wish to compose a sentence addressing me that begins with or includes the character string: "you are saying "
then persons limited to your powers of perception and comprehension should include a quotation of what I actually posted.

But because you're so disadvantaged I'll give you a hint.
No.
I'm making the opposite assertion, based upon a statistical contrast between the U.S. per capita incarceration rate, and that of most African nations.

I and millions of other people have choice and options about what we choose as entertainment. There is nothing sad about choice. What is sad is the NFL is allowing a few people on the field, ruin their revenue base.

The right and power to think, act, and express ourselves as we individually choose is consistent with our unalienable right of Liberty.

BUT!!

We need not look further than the current opioid epidemic sweeping the nation to understand that while the right to choose is valuable, the choices some of our countrymen make demonstrate obvious lack of rational thought.

"Allowing"?

The NFL is the victim here.

When they are guilty they have been punished!
