    Biracial children

    I have a dear friend who happens to be White. She also is the ex-wife of a Black man and the Mother of 3 adult biracial children. She made a beautiful post on Facebook today concerning the NFL national anthem debate. She understands perfectly what the NFL players are protesting. She knows they are not protesting the national anthem, the flag, the military, etc.
    She knows they are protesting police brutality that leads to the deaths of unarmed Black males. She cares because her sons are Black males. She doesn't understand why some people cannot see what she sees.
    I admire and respect my friend more than ever now.

    If a cop shoots a black person with no justification they get punished.

    What exactly is she protesting again?

    That any black shot by a cop should be punished regardless of the cause?

    It makes no sense.

    So, the thread actually has nothing to do with bi-racial children.

    I can think of four cases right off the top of my head where the policeman involved didn't recieve any punishment for killing a Black male. Eric Garner in New York, Tamir Rice in Cleveland, Ohio and Philander Castille in Wisconsin and Freddie Gray in Baltimore. Those Black victims didn't receive justice for their deaths. There are many more. So many that I can't remember all the names right now.

    You are correct ....

    Kapernick who who got all this started .... who is clearly by his own words .... anti-American ... pro communist ... comments ... this has nothing to do with biracial children and everything to do with hating America and more specifically white Americans.

    Were they found guilty of doing something illegal?

    Yes it is.

    Not sure what you guys want here, we have laws in place to deal with cops who overstep their bounds.

    Do you want more laws or simply a trial, not by jury, but the public?

    12% of the population 60% of the violent crime.

    It is meaningless if you ignore these facts.
