If NFL had suspended Kaepernick we wouldn't have 'a problem'

If NFL had suspended Kaepernick we wouldn't have 'a problem'

Trump's comments came on the same day that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, NFL owners and the NFL Players Association announced they would meet next week in NY to decide what to do about anthem protests.

Maybe it is those who oppose these players and their right to protest during the anthem who are the true "anti-Americans", not the ones peacefully exercising their right to speak against injustice.

"There has been no change in the current policy regarding the anthem", an National Football League statement said.

"I wanna know about all these people who are all of the sudden the troops biggest supporters that haven't done s- for our military 365 days a year".

"I think that it's really rude because it's like you don't respect our country", Anna Cater, sophomore on the Kennedy Swimming and Diving team, said.

Irish Court Gives Apple Go-Ahead for $1 Billion Data Center
Following public hearings in Galway last summer, An Bord Pleanála gave Apple the go-ahead to build the facility last August. Ireland's worldwide business reputation has been damaged by delays to the Apple data centre in Athenry, according to IBEC.

"But I think it's the right thing". Okay, two problems. First, the National Football League would have no authority to suspend Kaepernick. This form of protesting also refers towards the Black Panther movement and this form of protesting hasn't been commented on.

The NFL and NFLPA released a joint statement on the matter. This past weekend, Vice President Pence attended the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers game and left after witnessing players kneeling during the anthem. "Not the same game anymore, anyway", Trump told a group gathered in Huntsville on September 22. Long said it has been "chaotic" as "the initial goal for the protest, which is criminal justice reform and increased police accountability" became lost.

People have paid too much attention to the players actually kneeling instead of the reason they are doing it: to raise awareness of the oppression that minorities face in this country. The fact that some of you reading this are getting pissed off by what I'm writing is why this is important. Some athletes like Frank Banks also claim how the national anthem have direct historical roots of slavery and racism. Jenkins, for one, says he'd continue his demonstration even if Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie threatened punishment.

Some people have argued that the refusal to stand during the Anthem disrespects the veterans who fought for the flag, while others - including some veterans - have contended that soldiers actually fought for the rights that allow these activists to protest.

Is it really more disruptive to kneel quietly on one knee, maybe even with a hand on one's heart, than to march, shouting "Blood and soil" and "Jews will not replace us" while waving a Confederate flag sewn to promote separation from the USA altogether?
