I can't respect a person who refuses to stand when the national anthem is played.
I don't like his overall anti-American approach. However, not respecting him for not standing is stupid. You stand bc you've been brainwashed into standing. At least he can think for himself. Sadly, too few can. You probably bash Chris for being anti Christian and rightfully so, but idolatry like worshipping the US flag is also ungodly. You people swear allegiance to a freakin piece of cloth. How sad is that.

I am going to skip over the religious arguments. The first part of his story was interesting the lengths he went to in order to become the player he was. I guess that is why there aren't many people that size that make it that far. The pattern seems to repeat itself. Many people who have a lot of success at their chosen trade are borderline crazy/go to extreme levels.

I'm far from a liberal, and I'm not concerned with Chris becoming a Muslim. I celebrate the two great years he gave LSU. He played hard for us and that should not be forgotten.

He was a sick player...

I love the fact that Dale Brown let him play, let him shoot..."We need you to score more"

Can you imagine him at Duke and being told to pass the ball to the big man? oh wait

re: Chris Jackson tells his story NBA Legend Mahmoud Abdul Rauf


quote:

National anthem controversy[edit] Abdul-Rauf is perhaps best known for the controversy created when he refused to stand for "The Star-Spangled Banner" before games,[4] stating that the flag was a symbol of oppression and that the United States had a long history of tyranny. He said that standing to the national anthem would therefore conflict with his Islamic beliefs. On March 12, 1996, the NBA suspended Abdul-Rauf for his refusal to stand, but the suspension lasted only one game. Two days later, the league was able to work out a compromise with him, whereby he would stand during the playing of the national anthem but could close his eyes and look downward. He usually silently recited a Muslim prayer during this time. In an apparent publicity stunt gone wrong linked to this controversy, four employees of Denver's KBPI radio station were charged with misdemeanor offenses related to entering a Colorado mosque and playing "The Star-Spangled Banner" on a bugle and trumpet, in a provocative response to Abdul-Rauf's refusal to stand for the national anthem.[5]

Sounds like he doesn't understand that the world doesn't revolve around him, even in his life. He thinks people were trying to take him down, when in reality they were just making a buck off of his stupidity. Of coarse the league didn't want anything to do with him after he made those comments and "it didn't have anything to do with basketball".......its about making money dumb-ass. In all honesty, I think if he hadn't of been raised in such a non educational environment he probably wouldn't have turned out like that. He also probably wouldn't have been a basketball star either though.

We don't worship the US flag, we respect it. Why? Because of the sacrifice that others before us made. When the marines took Iwo Jima, they planted a US flag. Why? Because the flag is a symbol of our country, and the principles that it stands for.

Well let's see,...
We can hate him b/c he's a Muslim or becuase he holds unpopular political views. Either way, posters view him as un American as a result of exercising his Constitutionally protected freedom of religion and freedom of expression.
Before those same folks attack Jackson for his hypocrisy they might check their own at the keyboard before posting...
