Rosa Parks was not protesting the bus. Gandhi was not protesting the food. The colonists were not protesting tea. Players are not protesting the flag or the anthem. They are protesting injustice.

They’re picking the wrong place and the wrong time to protest. They can protest injustice 4sure & will probably get a lot of support, but protesting the anthem goes in the face of the people who fight for it. They’re not connected & it doesn’t make sense. Do it in another forum.

If you don’t think their employment contract is an employment situation like any other then yes, you’re right, this is a waste of our time. Enjoy the day! I hope the pups are good!

Funny that I don't get a chance to protest at my job.. i guess rich famous athletes are better than the rest of us, that they feel entitled to protest at their employers expense...weird.

So it would be ok for the Chicago police to boycott and take a knee during the ML King celebration because of the "systemic" murder in the black community? You don't fight bigotry with more bigotry. Stereotyping the police and national symbols is as wrong as stereotyping blacks.

Make sure you look up when and why this became part of their job. And people at desk jobs, teaching jobs, contractor jobs, gov't jobs, etc, also protest, you're just not creative enough to see them as they happen. Think on it as I'm done with those that don't see outside the box.

Or the fact that they deflected suspicion because they dressed as brown skinned people? js

How about all the years, too many forget, of the players and coaches in the locker room during the anthem? IT'S NOT ABOUT THE ANTHEM!

Ask 70% of Americans what they think about "taking a knee" ONLY during the anthem, and you'll see who's missing the point.

Well its the American sign of disrespect during the National Anthem. If the protest weren't ment as disrespect to the Anthem they wouldn't keep doing it during the Anthem. Hopefully the NFL will go out of business soon.

But it kinda of is. Since Kaepernick originally disrespected the country and said he won’t stand for the anthem specifically. Could be plenty of ways to fight injustice. You can’t do something during the anthem every week and say it’s not about that at all.

If they’re protesting injustice then why don’t they say what they believe rather than kneeling during an anthem that symbolizes freedom and courage. Talk ab it, don’t just kneel for no reason cuz everyone else is

You don't know history. Rosa's resistance and subsequent arrest were planned to initiate the bus boycott. Open a book.

So, you're saying someone with an invisible disability or someone that doesn't care to stand, because it's actually a choice still, are out to disrespect the idol the flag? or the anthem?

😂How can you even say that?! Or is you bubble too small to notice people not like you? That IS the reason they are respectfully kneeling during the anthem, which is full of not good history btw. "Your protesting is upsetting me, do it somewhere else."
