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.

I really don’t give a fuck about the NFL or football. I do give a fuck about a group of private corporations colluding to erode the 1st amendment to playcate the orange shit eater in the White House

Course they did. The boycotts dented their profits and they couldn't do anything about it. With Kaep they can do whatever they want to him. Boycotts isolated the problem to just their racism and the consequences of it and left them powerless but to change.

They were a drop in the bucket there. The civil Rights movement largely won in court battles and the attitudes changed retroactively as the culture was forced to change because of the dreaded PC police. Many businesses we're still refusing to serve black people ANYWAY.

Why don’t you try protesting whatever perceived injustice you oppose in the middle of your workplace during work hours? Let me know how that works out for you...

It all contributed. But Kaep is doing neither of those. Raising awareness is the liberal version of thoughts and prayers. The activists in the civil rights days took direct action and got direct results. Kaep is a publicity stunt, and has reaped all that that earns.

He's doing a lot for charity, a lot of people are talking about him, and there's a lot of tension over him. He's doing good stuff. Most of the right would be screaming bloody murder if he was as disruptive as King or Parks.

Charity's great, but irrelevant to his protest. There's a lot of people talking and tension over the latest Star Wars films, but I don't see what that's accomplishing. I think he should be making the right scream. That could indicate something might actually happen.

He is making the right scream already. Fox news are crying about him all the time and the owners just reacted to remove the players' ability to express themselves because of him.

If "kneeling to own the cons" is good enough for you, then God bless you, be happy. I still think it's a colossal waste of time and effort, but you do you.

Considering how upset it's made most every day right type I've seen, it sure seems to be doing its job.

Rosa Parks went to prison. Gandhi nearly starved. The colonists literally started a war where many of them died. When protestors protest for 3 minutes and then stand back up to make 20 million dollars, that upsets people. Because there's no real sacrifice.

Until we *understand* why there's so much backlash against it, all the talk in the world isn't going to solve anything. Injustice will remain. Protests with no real effort involved mean nothing. As a result, they will not have the effect real protests historically have.

You see kneeling as disrespectful. The people doing the kneeling do not. They understand that it is actually a universal sign of fealty and respect.

To do it in front of the flag during the national anthem is the BEST time. I know that you find free speech inconvenient, but get over it.

A bus, tea & food aren’t the American flag & anthem.
