There's no oppression of Black people in America. That's completely fabricated by the Leftists because they count on Black votes. They are BY FAR more racist in their history, including Biden as the biggest racist. There is spots of racism in America like some portions of the Deep South, and Northern Idaho, but this isn't a racist Country.Your opinion is your opinion, but why would he "kneel about the mass killings every single week in major cities that are Black on Black gang crime" when the National Anthem is being played. He indicated that his explanation for his action was simple: "to protest racial inequality and the oppression of Black people in America".
So I ask this: You want him to be concerned about "black on black" crime, but not police brutality and killings? If that's the case, you have won me over.
Also, wouldn't it be kinda, selfish to be concerned about 'black on black' crime, but not other types, i.e. black on brown, black on white, white on black, white on yellow, etc? What if a deeper dig into the police killings result in a solution for ALL of these crimes? It seems to me that the entire discussion, relative to Kapernick, focused on his kneeling and stopped any other discussion of him. The following blacklisting by the NFL, proves my point.
Here's my take: Any sane analysis of crime indicates that murder, at least, generally takes place against the folks in your closest periphery, so to stop 'black on black' crime, just integrate their neighborhoods. So NFL players should kneel for integration. That way they could focus on brutality.
(Author inserted this silly solution purposefully).
By the way, your thoughts about the timing of the kneeling is among the more reasoned responses I've read about this issue. I don't mind saying that I'm surprised at that, but I have to call them as I see them.
Hopefully the moderator will allow these comments to remain.
Whites die by Police gunfire an average of twice as much per year than Blacks, that's FBI stats. All it boils down to is that Idiocy is color blind. White people don't pick the Flag out and kneel for White justice because we refuse to support the idiots in our race.
There is some bad Cops, which is the same as there is some bad Plumbers and Accountants.
