take a knee

don't tell me i'm anti flag. or that i hate my country.

don't tell me i'm disrespecting the people who serve or our veterans. i worked my ass off for them.

i take a knee in protest and in support.

i take a knee because #blacklivesmatter and i was raised as a privileged white racist.

I take a knee against police brutality.

against a president who is so dimwitted that he didn't even realize that Puerto Rico is part of America but goes golfing while people there go without food or water.,

against a congress that allows healthcare for get kicked to the curb, while they fight for billions of dollars of tax credits for the mega wealthy.

what if instead of being annoyed that athletes were taking a stance, the fans in the stadium, took a knee. imagine saying to those brave young men...........we get it. bless you.

imagine if we all took a knee together. everyone, and let the Cheetoh Man see.

Imagine if people would truly listen to each other.

Then these flag waving "I am more of a Patriot than you" types would find out that YOU also love your country, and the reason you are protesting is that you love it so much, you don't want it to "go down in flames", " "go down the tubes", or be torn apart any more than it already has been.

It's obvious to those of us who are outside America, watching this.

Check out my profile or and become a "watcher" of my blog FMAOPLS,to learn more about me, and for intelligent, lively, smartassy and fun discussion, with a little irreverence thrown in. "Like" or comment on my photos, and I promise I'll add more. Thanks.

How can America vote for a president who said he wanted to make America great again, then will not condemn white supremacists for killing a peaceful protester, but comdemns sportsmen for standing up for the injustice in their country. A president that thinks knealing is disrespectful. WHY DOES A MAN KNEAL TO PROPOSE ? he is respecting the woman he chose to marry. THIS GUY IS A COMPLETE MORON AMERICA. He is making your country a laughing stock around the world.

people take a knee for prayer, not for protest

people take a knee for respect, for prayer, for honor.

there is no dishonor to the flag. this is to bring awareness to the issues of disparity in this country.

I think it's time that we started to "give" a knee to that Giant Infant who "we" elected President.......and that is just what we are seeing.......and the whole World is watching.......and hoping we fix "our" mistake.......

    Quoting  :

They are taking a knee in exactly the right place. This country's legal system condones and rewards these police abuses of power. Most times there is never even an indictment let alone a conviction for these out right murders that are even video taped for all the world to see. Until there is real accountability, Yes it should be pointed out that although this country has it's good points, this needs to be addressed. It may make some of you uncomfortable but these are the rights granted in the constitution that I swore to defend as a member of the armed services.
Oh, and it is a matter of public record what these athletes do for and in their communities. I always hear people saying they need to go into the community. GO and look up what Kaep does to back up what he says.

I, for the first time in my life, finally have a small sliver of respect for football. And if taking a knee will end police brutality, if it will end racism? I will gladly walk on my knees all day. So many people are turning this into disrespect for the flag and being unpatriotic.
It has less than shit to do with patriotism. It has everything to do with illegal search and seizure, it has everything to do with racial profiling, it has everything to do with innocent people being murdered and imprisoned.
Funny how you never see anyone say shit about the message these people are trying to send, only rebuttals about how "I'm not racist" How unfair they are being, how disrespectful, how anti-American....ad nauseum....
This is one of those subjects that I could easily write a three page discourse about and stir up a whole hornets nest of controversy, but I am just going to say this: Name the place, give me time to get there, I will gladly take a knee with you.

truth is hard for some folks. it's easier to say you hate the flag then look at the real issue.

it's damn hard to look at yourself and say, shit, i'm a privileged white person and this is a problem.

You are correct. But, I see a worse measure.
3 out of 10 people, might see using the flag for protest as disrespect.
The other 7 are angry for protest on police shooting black people for sport.
They want it to continue. And will say you are being lied too by the media.
Over all, I agree with you.

It's interesting this topic resurfaced and how the dissenters want the protesters to express themselves in a manner befitting how the dissenters choose. Even more interesting are the claims that these expressions disrespect the US flag and the current and former military service men and women. My understanding is that US citizens have the right to peacefully protest, which I think these players are doing. It seems it would be more disrespectful to not use the rights afforded to you, the rights for which those same service men and women sacrificed. I've seen people at games hold conversations or let their children run around during the National Anthem, but people get upset at this???

I'm always reminiscent of Evelyn Beatrice Hall's quote, "I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it."

Is democratic behavior the behavior that democracies like or the behavior that best preserves a democracy?

I support the right to kneel in protest. I pray that kneeling is only the beginning. I pray that we all can join together to move our country forward to be a leader for human rights that the world respects.

BTW, Wicked, I respect your courage to post on a political subject that is certain to bring on strong a strong response from your readers! Keep it up.

Interesting about how you put this.
And usually on a sex site, taking a knee or getting on your knees means something altogether!
I not only support the right of anyone to peacefully protest injustice, but those who have a wide platform should do so if their conscious tells them so.
I am an activist. So are you, sis. Who knew that we ladies would become like this?

Column 1:

Peaceful protest of civic problem admittedly disputed by some

Column 2:

Sport promotes chronic and progressive brain damage
Many participants have been engaged in domestic violence
Drug and alcohol abuse is endemic
More than one current and former star has been guilty of murder
Cheating and unethical behavior is rampant at the highest levels

Okay, now pick a reason to boycott. By the way, the sturm and drang has not resulted in a greater year over year loss in viewership from 2016 than 2016 had from 2015 and 2015 had from 2014.

in a march on washginton? maybe nothing would happen. maybe nothing would change.

it's entirely possible that no amount of protest will make a difference. but that doesn't mean that we stop, does it?
