Seems to me, appropriate protest would be to refuse to sing our National Anthem...

But then he couldn't get his message out! Which is probably oppression or something, no one really knows.

Gotta get that paper first before he stands up for what he "believes" in. #C.R.E.A.M

Goddell has really let this get out of hand. I, for one, refuse to watch a single second of NFL games. It's all college games for me.

Btw - This singer is a full retard. You can't sing and protest the anthem simultaneously. Or did Obama say he could?

MOre impressive would be if any of these morons could actually articulate what it is they're "protesting" against. The nonstop black violent crime?

I protest both. Why do some idiots think that because someone protests one thing it means they accept another? Basically, it's not ok to protest police brutality from overzealous cops because blacks kill other blacks? Got it. It's ok for cops to kill unarmed people or rough people up to "show who's boss". I've experienced it as a kid and into adulthood. Thrown on the hood of a hot arse police car because because a my taillights went out due to a blown fuse on my way home. Several unwarranted incidents like this throughout my life. Luckily, I'm still here. Some cops are pieces of shite just like any other citizen who takes another person's life for no reason, especially in my community. At least threads are being started and admins are posting it on a sports forum like this to keep the exposure going.

Luziana - might want to look at statistics of cops violence vs whites/blacks. Blacks are LESS likely to be killed. But continue with racist fervor.

Several of the cops that started the whole round of protests were black. Just saying. Police brutality should be addressed on a case by case basis, and the officers should be punished accordingly. However, there shouldn't be a national crisis every time a thug is shot by a cop trying to protect the community.

ole man you're living in old days that kept a lot of the shite going that these guys a protesting. Time to actually speak to people who've been in these situations that they're protesting and maybe you'll understand "black power shit". Your comment was spoken like a true supremacist.

I never knew fighting for equality and equal treatment under the law was "black power shit". I thought it was called accountability and justice.

TJ, what inequality is being fought? Please don't say police brutality... Men are shot 95% of the time by police as well, I guess the police is super sexist against men? Nah society rightfully realizes that men, on average, commit the vast majority of violent crime. Now apply that same filter to race...

Hillary Clinton and the Democrat media have been bitching for 8 months; "what happened" and "the resistance." Or did you conveniently forget? We are here to stay so shut the frick up.

This shite is getting ridiculous. They are protesting for nothing. There is no social injustice and there is no institutional discrimination towards blacks in this nation. Just plain stupid.
