I don't blame anyone for doing so in an America under Trump.

Kneeling is for wimps.
Already done, back at the Mexico City Olympics Games of 1968. Btw, I got the feeling we might see more kneeling memes coming.



Btw, I wonder if Race Imboden will do a stunt similar to what Martin Luther King did in this "alternate reality" shown in this episode of the Boondocks?

Dissent is as American as apple pie.
This is what truly makes America great.
Are we supposed to be just a bunch of patriotic robots?

I suppose he could use the publicity to hype himself.

Well the whole world saw the medal ceremony. Great for him to that. It is not uncommon. I remember there were two African-Americans who won gold and bronze at the 1968 Olympics "'Tommie Smith and John Carlos each raised a black-gloved fist during the playing of the US national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner"."

According to the conservative aging bigots on this board, only when it comes to POC. They dont like to see any sort of form of protest.

We could ask the same question about Michael Brown's mother, Lesley McSpadden who had a fight with Michael's grandma. C-D forums had a thread about this event along with this old tweet. It's hard to resist to the temptation to mention then the apple hadn't fall far from the tree. Michael Brown's mother named as robbery attacker

Are you kidding? It was an interview with Nate Boyer a green beret,. So what news source what do you emphatically trust? The one that agrees with your opinion? This story is common knowledge to NFL fans.
