I guess he did what he thought he had to do, for better or worse. We'll see where it goes, certainly far outside of my control.
But in general it, and BLM for that matter, are inconveniently timed as there is nothing more likely to get white folk to vote for their own destruction faster than the black folks getting uppity.
I do sympathize with him a bit though. Back around 2005-6 or so I'd gotten to the point where I literally felt ill when I'd be sitting in a crowd of $8 weiner chomping pale tubbies who were all experiencing religious ecstasy while watching a DoD pageant on the field. To remind you, that would be in the midst of two failed, poorly chosen and executed military adventures that were costing us half a $T a year and messing with hundreds of thousands of US lives- not to mention millions of others.
I'm hardly a high profile individual as he is but my conclusion in that case was that any form of public protest such as sitting for the anthem would not be understood by any of the tribe anyway.
BTW, I think there is a straight path from the time I reference to Trump. Once you're down the rabbit hole is is hard to head back to the light.
I heard a snippet about his jersey being the 3rd highest seller even though he`s second string. ..oh this reminds me Laterel Spreewell kicked a camera man in the balls and his jerseys were going for 10 bucks at the Target Center But this polarizes the country more.
But shouldn`t Kapon-nick be pleased with the direction of the country? Mischell Obama said 8yrs ago "this is the first time I`ve been proud of this country" well I would think the Kapon would also be happy with the direction and be standing good and straight at the anthem.
At a game during the anthem, I feel uncomfortable standing, I doubt George Washington would in this day & age. To get through the anthem, I think about the America 30 yrs ago, because today`s America... I`d be sitting down right beside the Kapon.
You show about as much understanding of, and empathy for, "the blacks" as El Donaldo does.
But that is similar to a majority of white folks, which is why this thing is even close.
The new Trump team is good, for sure. They are the world's experts on how to hook a sucker and keep him hooked.
Though I would observe that is like con men being able to spot a good mark by the larceny in his heart.
Exactly, if someone`s heart isn`t in it...don`t do it...and if Hillary wins, I may also sit. That may be the final straw, a flag that has been coopted by communists, isn`t a flag that one should stand for, I`ve probably stood 8 years too long at those events as it is now.
