The controversy about athletes kneeling is a red herring. While we’re entitled to opinion this the way it is written. I cannot say I would have Colin Kaepernick on my team but give credit where credit is due. Men kneeled when they propose to future wives. When they gather with other players after games to pray. Kneeling is reverence and humility.
Their actions are about injustice committed on Americans by people who protect and serve. Individuals who use the weapon of authorities under the weapon of authorities under the auspices of authority right down to their clothes to commit murder. They’re allowed to walk free by cover up. Some of these athletes have been in the military are kneeling to the flag they defended. No country is perfect therefore the need to protest.
Considering CEO’s have said they wouldn’t put money back into their companies under Trump Tax cuts I’m not sure most team owners are trying to win but compare their players to inmates. Soon the networks won’t show the singing of the National Anthem silencing non violent protest. Whether or not you agree they represent your city.
The President has twittered about it and other things which only seems to cause further fury and make owners come out with trite support for their players action though we know they are more concerned with the players who are signed to long term deals rather than some short timer.
Athletes have held like reverence for other causes. Certainly sexual assault and harassment will be moving to the fore front. Why not ride it that kneeling is so out front. Get it over in Europe and the rest of the world stage. Quieting of division. A man take a knee in submission a country decide not to go to war. People are not displaced and borders remain sovereign
Through time the world has allowed to go on regardless the acts of man. By now we have created ways that could erase generations quicker than to create. Ways to make it unsustainable flora and fauna sea and sky. Consider our leaders in the light and the dark. While one would upset the status quo it should be in the frame work of the law. Make for civilized people. Favored states speak up for their neighbors. The great leaders and the great libraries of the world. Like wise reverence of the arts. Should unite peoples live long. But there is war and more. Need only cross foreign space. Domestic policy is maddening. Bad tax and health plans. Bombastic and racist the absolute face of the party that goose step behind him. They believe same. Maverick get their name on the side of ships. Symbol of American might. In this hour when everyone is on edge whether they can trust the Americans as long as wars are 0n other people’s lands. This is our lifetime.
