Quote:
Their protest, which focuses on the United States as represented by the flag and the national anthem, dishonors every American, especially if they’re white. These protests should outrage all law-abiding Americans because it collectively—and individually—makes them guilty for something they have not done. Finally, there’s no “revolution” because there’s no “oppression.”

All of this hollow, obtuse outrage by white america does nothing more but prove the original point behind kneeling.

I've recently been reading a lot of James Baldwin and his material has me thinking - what is this anger actually about?

This dude's running for mayor of Raleigh, NC.

Quote:
#HypocrisyoftheNFL

Why are players protesting? They feel there is "injustice"? What about the "injustice" that they CREATE?

Children whom they do not claim. Women they beat and rape. Taxes they do not pay. Drugs they do illegally. Drunk driving. Murder....

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. None of these "men" can do that.

They should be glad that we watch at all.

People Last Week: "Boycott the NFL!"

People This Week: ::panic, realize what they're saying::

People Today: “I’m a diehard Patriots fan...I’m willing to forgive if they get up Sunday, get off their knees and respect the country."

Damn. Drop C. That's pretty fucking low. I don't think my guitar would even stay in tune unless I used piano strings or something.
