Default Protests

Why does every one say they are disrespecting the Flag. CK stated that he was protesting the way that blacks are treated in this country, not the flag.

Stop paying for NFL redzone on your tv--hit 'em in the pocketbook--stay away from advertisers that buy commercial time on NFL games--GREEN is the only color that really matters

No more for me. I am disgusted at this behavior and the non stop bashing of white men who fought for this Great Country.

These players have chosen to make their protest during the anthem to our country which to me it is protesting the wrong thing and the wrong time.. It really is angering many, many people rather than gaining sympathy for their need to say that they feel that black people are being treated unfairly by law enforcement.

I can't know exactly HOW they feel because I am not black, but how one chooses to use free speech can either make a situation better or worse. I think this is making both sides angrier.

Wrapping oneself in the American flag does not make a racist invisible to what their real goals are. This story is as old as the Jim Crow laws. I’ve never, ever seen as many racists in one place as I’ve seen here. Honestly, I’m dumbfounded that smart intelligent successful people can be so ignorant not to see beyond their white skin to think that they are the only stakeholders in this country.

I agree 100%. I've been a NFL fan what seems like forever. I backed off last year due to all of their disrespect. After yesterday, I will no longer be watching. My feeling is the owners want to accept their behavior due to making money! Once the viewership/tickets to games reduce drastically, that will hit their pocketbooks. If the owners/managers/players don't have respect, I'm not watching or supporting!

Because it's easier to justify ones own bigotry/racism/prejudice against blacks...by focusing on the wrong issue.
