The NFL players kneeling during the playing of The Star-Spangled Banner in football stadiums across the country are engaging in protests based on false claims and misleading media reports that give the impression that police are killing African-Americans at a rate greater than they are killing whites.
In addition, my own research shows that contrary to some claims, blacks have good relations with police they deal with in their neighborhoods.

They really don’t care about truth.
And they should be thanking the police. If not for the police, they would have all killed each other by now.
7 Statistics You Need To Know About Black-On-Black Crime
4. There were almost 6,000 blacks killed by other blacks in 2015.
By contrast, only 258 blacks were killed by police gunfire that year.
6. According to Riley, Black crime rates were lower in the 1940s and 1950s, when black poverty was higher and racial discrimination was rampant and legal.
If its not racism and poverty that are blame for the high black crime rate, then what is?
7. According to Mac Donald, A straight line can be drawn between family breakdown and youth violence.
As economist Thomas Sowell points out, before the 1960s most black children were raised in two-parent families. In 2013, over 72 percent of blacks were born out of wedlock. In Cook County which Chicago belongs to 79 percent of blacks were born to single mothers in 2003, while only 15 percent of whites were born to single mothers.
The players are protesting because Colin Kappernick isn’t getting signed and because they think that there should be more black men running the NFL organization.
And they are protesting because they can.
This summer there were calls from black people to boycott the 2017 NFL season. This was the NFL’s compromise. And it didn’t prevent a boycott from the rest of the viewers.
My friends: you’re not going change anything no matter what you think or say. They’re sticking with the position that this is a racist country. The NFL is the one forum where they’ll express it because they ARE the game. If they ran this country it would be run like Robt. Mugabe runs his.
Um, is it McDonald's running out of McNuggets?
No, some people just solve every problem in their lives with violence. It's the first and last resort for them and don't forget, according to them, someone else is always to blame for their behavior. Nothing's ever their fault.
Well, if that happened, thank God for that, because it could be like Idi Amin, and eat us.
Any reports on MNF, crowd size, player behavior, etc. If yhe NFL has any bad luck I wouldn’t mind hearing about it.
“Any reports on MNF, crowd size, player behavior, etc. If yhe NFL has any bad luck I wouldnt mind hearing about it.”
But that news won’t support the narrative, which is that white racism is a pandemic in this country. Blacks can be virulent racists all day long, and that’s okay. They deserve to be since slavery existed 160+ freaking years ago.
Nevermind that the ignoramuses kneeling on the field are treated like kings, make millions of dollars a year and drive Escalades. Never mind that that there are very successful black people in every occupation. And that a lot of them live in mansions.
Or that there are also countless white people in this country who for a variety of reasons haven’t clawed thier way to fame and fortune.
You won’t see any news about how the morons are affecting the business because the only thing that matters is the democrat narrative. We live in very strange times.
Fools are tools...
Depends - was there a YouTube video about it????
“Hands off don’t shoot,” should be “Hands off don’t arrest.”
It is no secret that gang activity and drug trafficking is desired with no police intervention.
Amen to each paragraph. El Rushbo has it nailed down pretty well by saying this taking down of the NFL has been sought and planned by the left for a long time. The left despises the machismo and liberty of a football game. They hate the Flag, the Anthem and the flyovers. And they finally found some suckers, beginning with Kaepernick, to do the dirty work of wrecking it for them.
It’s based on hatred of white people.
White liberal elites have turned the black community into a hellhole... dependent, criminal, and totally loyal to democrats.
Sadly, I believe you're right. If the NFL players ran things here we would become a hellhole.
