not once has trump criticized kaepernick and the other kneelers on the basis of race.

 

He doesn't have to.  If he has any inkling that Kaepernick originally knelt to protest rogue cops shooting innocent black people, he would know.  That and the fact that the NFL is 70% black.  Trump knew what he was doing and he didn't have to specifically mention race.

 

But what he didn't count on was the compadreship among players of all races, religions, economics and including coaches and owners and even some owners who have given money to Trump (Bob Kraft, Patriots).  Even Roger Goodell called him out.  It's called being a team and sticking together, Donny.

Jackie Robinson



The American baseball player who broke the color bar of Jim Crow segregation in Major League Baseball

Recipient, Presidential Medal of Freedom

Member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame






Jackie Robinson had to take racial slurs and humiliating indignities to play baseball with white players in 1947.

It's truly tragic that the President of the United States, who is supposed to be the representative and protector of all Americans, has nothing better to do today than to racially insult American professional athletes who are black.

Most Americans do not want to go back 70 years and repeat all the mistakes of the past.

This country has progressed in 70 years and I don't believe most Americans are going to let one person drag us back into the dark ages of racism, misogyny and homophobia.

I'm reminded that veteran/American icon Jackie Robinson concluded the preface to his autobiography this way:

 What is the zaygon hegemony?  Is it some little island comprised solely of white male conservatives?  If so, it seems dullsville to me.

Nipkow posted often on how he believed that Hidden Figures was all fictional and never really happened. More leftist propaganda, he said. 

 

Of course.  I should have known.  Heaven forbid somebody other than white conservative males get credit for anything,

THAT'S what I'm talking about. :lol:

 Are you so locked into your own little world that you can't understand the contributions of the whole fabric of humanity - different races, different sexes, etc.?  Now that's sad.  What is the zaygon hegemony?  Is it some little island comprised solely of white male conservatives?  If so, it seems dullsville to me.

if those who laud her actually believed all that than they would see the wrongfulness of minimizing the conquest of the earth's frontiers by the caucasian race...

 

from chuck yeager challenging that ol' demon who lives in the air to armstrong setting the first human foot on the moon.

 

why do so many challenge reality? because they resent so much being accomplished by members of a single race.

 

that's really it isn't it? :)

the right can like Frederick Douglass because he spoke reasonably and not just emotionally. :)


Don't you think people are Americans first before they are anything else. Can't you just like someone because they made a great contribution to American history?

Or do you have to take it through some kind of litmus test that somebody else is giving you because you're considering yourself to be a right wing person.


I judge people by the principles of this country as they were written down in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

I don't need anybody else or any group of people any place, on any TV cable news channel , on any radio program, or any political party or any newspaper or any on-line magazine or anything else to tell me what's right and what's wrong.

I've known that since I was in the 1st grade.
