Good point Gracie makes by indicating don't blame the industry for the shortcomings of a handful of macho men. Think of our children that learn so many life's lessons from the sports. Stop finding fault with the NFL that does far more good for us all than bad. I love and respect the NFL and do not consider anything NFL management does as political. Stop it.

Why did you say white men in the first place?
Where in the h$#^ did you get the white supremacists idea?
From Colin Kapernick who also called all law enforcement PIGS and wore socks with pigs on them. Now that I answered where did you get the idea that I suggested there were no blacks fighting in Vietnam?

No need to inform me. I served honorably with all races. Where did you get the idea that I suggested otherwise? In fact my Platoon Sargent (Clark) and Squad Leader (Hatchett) were both black . I still have fond memories, especially Sgt, Clark. Thanks for your service.

Your good thread has been side tracked. Your views are understood by most of us and we are not bigots, nor do we lack compassion. I am done for this day. I am so mad at what happened to this thread I could bite.

Nice post Gracie.
