The National Football League has now taken a nose dive backwards on the National Anthem stance. A short time ago Roger Goodell, the NFL Commissioner to what appeared to be a stand againt Donald Trump when Trump spoke out saying “Owners should Fire Players if they don’t stand.” Goodell seemed to back players, saying Trump’s comments were “divisive” and “demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL.” Now just this week he issued another statement and it is very luke warm. Goodell started by saying “We live in a country that can feel very divided.” This is a shame he putt in “FEEL” very divided. This is the portion of White Privilege that is very Trifling because how in God’s green earth can this country “Feel” divided when clear stats show us Polic Brutality, The discrimination in the schools, and the high rate of Prison inmates being Black. Not to mention the constant reports being done that continues to highlight Racism. So for Goodell to talking about FEELING is a disgrace and it is disrespectful. Goodell only placed that memo because he is more concerned with the sponsors, yet how easily they forget, without the PLAYERS the owners don’t get paid and neither does the Commissioner. There was a time when Players did NOT have to leave the locker room for the Anthem and it wasn’t until the NFL was paid 5.9Million that they decided to have players stand. See White Supremacy is all about Money and Power. So we have to consider Jerry Jones may have called Roger Goodell and gave him an earful. Let us also remember Jerry Jones, the one who is so patriotic was and have always been an owner of the Dallas Cowboys, his teams also stood in the locker room during the national anthem and the Cowboys are supposed to be AMERICA’S team!
So the NFL is in for a battle on this one. It has always been yelled, “When are Black people going to come together?” Now we are doing it and now The White Supremacist are say “no not like that!” I am convinced and have been convinced for several years about Racism existing. I call you my readers to be clear within your life because within this world you have to be aware of Racism it seeps through that “Flag.”
In addition, the kneeling was not even about the Flag in the first place and the Kneeling was a suggestion from the Army Ranger that had a meeting with Colin last year. So live in Truth.
