I do find it interesting that for the most part, people that wonder what the big deal is because it's just a flag/anthem are the same ones that agree with removing statues/flag and vice versa.

Oh and just to nip any excuses in the butt: no, a statue of a person is not an actual person. Since Jaden said "actions, events, and people are history" I didn't wanna leave anyone room to weasel out.


Exactly. Which is why I don't get upset about statues being up or not.

Can't say I'd be happy with statues of Jimmy Savile or Peter Sutcliffe going up but I don't think that'll happen any time soon.

Then again I come from a city where they put up statues of a dragon, penguins, Lemmings and fat, bearded kids comic characters so I'm not sure how valid my opinion is.

Yea I was gonna say even if you don't care about statues of good people you would probably care if the right villain had a statue.

But the bottom line is that white power/pride is associated with a nasty history hence white people are too guilty to indulge.

You don't just get to wipe the slate clean and declare something like that devoid of any historical connotations when it is so deeply ingrained in the modern psyche.


That's right. Nazi's, certainly, but also to a point W.A.S.P.'s.

The powers that displaced them learned from their mistakes, and maintain a very careful face in public while they screw the little people behind the scenes..

People don't like having their hypocrisy pointed out.

I personally don't have a problem with people not standing for the anthem. When I was younger I flatly refused to stand for the pledge of allegiance and anthem in school because there's a truckload of stuff about the country I disliked. That being said, if there's a policy against political statements while in uniform(the way there is for cops) then the players shouldn't be allowed to do it, that's what they signed on for. If there's not such a policy then they should, and all the talk about punishing them is ridiculous because it's a free country.

Troops serve so people are allowed to do these things. Ask any troop

Yet here's me wondering what the big deal is because it's just an anthem/flag and not caring about statues one way or the other.

I doubt the tax payers who have to pay for these stadiums to keep these money hungry teams signed up to support protests they don't agree with.

Anyhow Rob, what about this?

I basically feel the same, but if you look at the various threads on here. we are the minority.

They are not failed points, they cut through the BS, and expose the hypocrisy.

Those tax payers need to be more concerned with the fact that their tax dollars go to an organization that makes billions of dollars every year then. It's listed as a "non profit" and shouldn't be, THAT'S what they need to be forcused on and trying to change.
