  1. There are no attacks on "black athletes". The whole thing is false disinformation. What Trump is saying, and I along with millions of NFL fans agree with, is that being an NFL player is a job, -a very high paying job, that only a privileged few are blessed with holding. In no job in this country (or anywhere else in the world), can you use your employers time, money, facilities, and that of the fans, ownership, etc. of those who are paying/employing you for your own personal political platform or grandstanding. It is definitely unpatriotic. This country gives you the players the chance to earn $Millions of dollars, and nowhere else in the world would that be possible. These players are lazy. Kneeling during the anthem is worthless and insulting and does nothing. If the players want to make a political stance and protest, then they should organize a march or some other such protest, and do it on their own time. That is fact, and my word is bond.

  2. It amazes me that the so called patriots that have the most to say about the flag have never served in the military or done anything that is remotely patriotic. As a military veteran i am proud of these men that jeopardize their livelihoods to make a stand against the blatant racism in america.this is one of the reasons that we serve.to protect the rights and freedom to speak our minds.stop saying that they are being disrespectful.get off of your cowardly asses and see what you can do for your country instead of spreading hate and division

  3. I still think that players should stand for the anthem as a way of showing thanks for a country that has given them the ability to make a living (good living) doing what they love to do. I understand the impetus and motivations for the protests, but I think that people should be intelligent enough to draw a distinction and recognize that the anthem represents far more than one man or one administration.

    People also need to realize that racism goes all ways in this country. I notice that many African Americans are very quick to talk about racism in policing, but I never hear a peep about Affirmative Action. Affirmative Action is, inherently, a racist policy and it has hurt my ethnic group (Asian Americans), especially when it comes to college admissions.

    So if we want to address racism, let's address it and get rid of it in all of its forms. Let's go to a truly equal country where the best qualified person gets the job or spot in college.

  4. We will be voting soon. i respectful ask all to stop wasting time yelling at these white racist. and spend our time getting out the Votes…..Let silents these racist by the vote

  5. I'm a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan of 9 tours. I'm leaving America. Why you ask? Let's put it in lamens terms. Football player brain injury = $5 million dollars with knee to flag. Veteran with brain injury = $123 a month willing to die for flag. No more. I'm out.

  6. TRUMP IS THE BEST PRESIDENT EVER UNLIKE HILLARY HE WOULD NEVER LEAVE OUR AMERICAN TROOPS TO DIE IN BENGHAZI LIKE HILLARY DID SO YA I HOPE TRUMP GETS TO BE PRESIDENT FOR 8 YEARS SO HE CAN MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

  7. TRUMP IS THE BEST PRESIDENT EVER UNLIKE HILLARY HE WOULD NEVER LEAVE OUR AMERICAN TROOPS TO DIE IN BENGHAZI LIKE HILLARY DID SO YA I HOPE TRUMP GETS TO BE PRESIDENT FOR 8 YEARS SO HE CAN MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

  8. The way I see it is social justice no longer means fighting for the innocent victims(SJW's please re-watch "Billy Jack") like it did back in the 70's. It is now communist justice. When we protect pure thugs, even go so far as handcuff police, we have anti-social justice. Every effort to reform the cities are just a waste of money. As long as we support the criminals doing the beat downs, and terrorizing whole cities, real people will suffer of all "colors" maybe we coped out back in the 1960's when we left the cities but, understand it was not for fear of "Black" people it was the introduction of the drug Heroine. Back then even marijuana was front page news. When the "white" youth started doing and getting strung out on Heroine people couldn't leave the city fast enough. Back to today's issues, because we are standing up and saying who is actually being hurt (innocent"Blacks" trying to improve their community and "whites" making a second effort to revitalizing the cities, or possibly their families were not wealthy enough to leave the city back in the day. In any event, they had to struggle through the drugs being introduced like Crack. The Drug Dealers do not show income they have to collect welfare and food stamps and pretend they are poor to hide the money they make selling drugs. The people trying to survive all this now get hit with BLM who are associated with ANTIFA a domestic terrorist organization Socialist/Communist groups. There are the paid protesters and angry young "black" youth not knowing who they should be mad at so they lash out at white people and Police. This is all Media driven, and supported directly by wealthy Corporations Disney, ESPN, and NFL and sponsors like Ford Motor Company, Budweiser and so on for some reason. It is most likely George Soros bankrolling all of this. The wager would be we Americans would revert to a mob mentality to stop the violence. The people being hurt are the innocent victims of drive by's gang related violence, mostly Black on Black crimes but, I'm sure with the funding the "Bad Guy's" are getting the Black on White crime will skyrocket as Soros is going all out to rip the USA apart this year. It's a sticky wicket for sure but' America has some experience with dealing with discrimination and racism in the past. We will survive.

  9. This one brought out all the Black racists below. The NBA is a joke and has been for years. I haven't watched a game since the 80's and then only the finals.The NBA is full of black street thugs who would be in prison if not in the NBA.

    NBA BOYCOTT NBA BOYCOTT NBA BOYCOTT NBA BOYCOTT NBA BOYCOTT

  10. Im just waiting to see who is going to pay the athletes bills after they get unemployed for kneeling against the flag the anthem and the country..or when the nfl goes bankrupt from the endorsement companies pulling out…

  11. Thank God that people are starting to stand up no matter what race they are and truly white Americans don't have to because they are not affected directly but as Americans we all are affected and one way or another

  12. And it's why I wanted Bernie and feared that Hillary would do what Trump is doing behind closed doors. I have always see Trump as a baffoon, a grifter with little intellectual heft. If we can get rid of both Parties, lap dogs of oligarchy and race dividers in so many ways. tRump is a gift that is a come to Jesus moment. We could reclaim our country from these traitors who sold us out for their 30 pieces of silver.

  13. it's funny how they claim Trump is attacking black athletes when not once did he ever say anything about race. He was just saying that not standing up for the national anthem was disrespectful. He even seems fine with the linking arms lol even though it is a dis against him

  14. I here all these bullshit about disrespecting the flag or are vet we fight for freedom Liberty Justice we is the out rage when Nazi and skin head and hillbilly ride around with the confederate flag huh some dumb shit shows this country ain't went that far from the 60

  15. As if President Trump cared what these NBA players say.  These players cannot accept the fact President Trump does not give a crap about political correctness and doesn't say what black players want to hear. Texas Hispanics SUPPORTRUMPENCE!
