Its Not About The Flag-It’s About America’s Racism

You can kneel to protest actions of your country, and still love it, and respect those that fight for this freedom. Thinking NFL protestors are protesting the flag is like thinking Rosa Parks was protesting public transportation.

"The hashtag, which was also referenced as #TakeTheKnee, is a response to not only Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel during the national anthem last season, but also to President Donald Trump who called him ― and those who refuse to stand for the national anthem ― a “son of a bitch.”

"Racism is why Kaepernick knelt during the anthem. Racism is why police violence continues to disproportionately take the lives of countless black men and women, a reason Kaepernick specifically gave for why he protested to begin with."

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL radio last year. At least 223 black Americans have been killed by police since Kaepernick first knelt in August 2016.

“To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way,” he added. “There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder

Politics is one thing that's supposed to be on the "NEWS", not the "NFL" or the "EMMYS." That's why we have "REMOTES" to change the channels. Yes, I'm yelling with the caps, I"M FED UP WITH LIBERAL IDIOTS WEARING PU**Y HATS.

Kaepernick was a failing player before he started his nonsense. His stats made him basical worthless. All he was trying to do was to distract from his failure as a player in hopes the publicity would keep him playing. The American people are making their voices heard with there wallets. Further more. All he has done is create a deeper divide in America. But you being a obama worshipper you should be happy seen that's all he did.

Incase the news was missed today. NFL ticket sales are down by 17.9% compared to last year which was a record low too

Colin Kaepernick kneeled and donated a million to Americans

Tom Price stood and stole a million from Americans

Who is a real patriot?

In case you missed it. K.Kapernick isn't playing this year and the sales are down because his supporters have been boycotting since the start of the season.

WE DIE
Ya'll Silent

Of the 706 people killed by police in the entire country 161 were black

In Chicago this year there have been over 540 murders and over 2800 shootings

Ignorance is bliss and I'm sick and tired of it!
That's 540 black folk killed in one city and Colin Cancer is SILENT!

Oh, I forgot just as we black folk don't supposed to snitch on each other even when we wrong, we also don't supposed to speak about the atrocities that have destroyed our general family welfare and makeup. You need to get out of your bubble and explore ALL of AMERICA!

Oh, and I also forgot that white folk don't tell the truth about one another or put each other down!

What the hell is the progressive left stream media doing to Donald Trump right now? GWB is a good Christian man, what did they do to him?

I'm glad proud and exhilarated that a Republican President has FINALLY fought back against the lies and fake news of PROGRESSIVES.

Oh, I also forgot that Donald Trump wasn't even considered a racist before he commented on Obama's birther movement which was actually started by Crooked Hillary and her associates in 2008.

Breaking NEWS... Colin Cancer said he would stand for the anthem if he could play again in the NFL.

....soooooo, is it racism or was it about himself?

Inquiring minds want to know.
