    With respect to your pastor he is correct and incorrect. It is passive resistance to a real issue but the manner of protest is disrespectful to millions... hence the uproar. Also... Kapernick's own words state it is about not respecting the flag/America.

    "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."

    But I do appreciate your admission that your judgement is your judgement regardless of pertinent information. You're quite the deep thinker, Mac.
    I'm sorry but that first paragraph makes no sense. Could you rephrase that into something semi-literate?

    Maybe you could give it another go when you're less impaired?

    I'm perfectly fine. You didn't write it very well. Don't worry about it. I'm sure it wasn't important anyways.

    I love how they think that the problem is that everyone is missing the point of the protests. We know why they're protesting. We think their protests are disrespectful and divisive.

    It's PH, so I agree it isn't very important. But maybe when you're in a better state you could understand what you read. I have confidence in you.

    The reason I don't care what they say is because they are morons who say they are protesting oppression but then turn around and support oppression.
    you sure post a lot about them for not caring. just how is it they support oppression? This should be good.
