Prejudice, Racism in America

Stand or Be Fined!!!…..The NFL Has New Policy Requiring Players to Stand


During the National Anthem or be fined!!!

Former 49er’s quarterback Colin Kaepernick began protesting the flag — which he called a symbolism of oppression of black people in America back in 2016.

After public backlash, Kaepernick got off the bench and kneeled on the sidelines. A few players joined him there, but the protest didn’t become a movement in the NFL until 2017, when President Donald Trump criticized Kaepernick and others for kneeling during the anthem.

According to the NY Daily News, players will have two options: stay in the locker room during the National Anthem or stand “and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.”
Team owners will be fined an unspecified amount if players defy the new policy and bring attention to themselves by kneeling on the sidelines.

The new rule will take effect at the start of the 2018-19 NFL season.

  1. This black man was so powerful with just kneeling that white america had to change the WHOLE policy in the NFL just to make sure no other blacks get the idea to get uppity again. Translation… we pay you negros to entertain us, run and catch the ball, not run your mouth and get people all riled up.

  2. NOW if Kanye wants to say slavery is a choice, this would be the example. You do have a choice if you want to play in their industry or go get another job. 😡

  4. Colin Kaepernick is the perfect example of how single mothers teach their sons to make stubborn feminine emotional decisions. I don’t see anyone donating to replace Colin’s salary. Colin has personal ethnic identity issues and is trying to ‘overprove’ he’s black to himself and the public. You cannot use 1960’s tactics to change shyt in 2017. Why didn’t he start a foundation with other NFL players to stop “police brutality”? Because NFL players don’t care and they don’t care about the thousands of negroes that get killed in the streets every year. Smh

  6. Honestly I don’t agree with the policy but boy do I feel proud right now! This movement was so powerful that the NFL had to go back and rewrite the policy. Unfortunately it hasn’t changed the subject of oppression but was a milestone none the less!

  7. Y’all should check out a book ’40 Million Dollar Slaves’ by William Rhoden.
    GREAT READ!!

    This is what the “draft” is. Modern day auction of million dollar slaves. Might as well have ’em buck naked on stage so the white masters can admire their physical characteristics too. And add a white blonde as a consolation prize, to boot.
