Objecting to NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem is racist.1 min read

Let’s make this clear:

Objecting to NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem is racist.

Full stop.

Think about it.

When BLM has a large event, or protests innocents shot by police, that’s not “appropriate”.  When BLM blocks a street, it’s not okay.  When there’s simply counter protests against Nazis and the KKK, it’s criticized. 

And when there is a silent, non-violent protest that literally had no practical impact and inconvenienced no one, it’s still lambasted.

But when the Nazis and KKK and white nationalists march and block streets and incite violence (the KKK quite literally said that their members should kill gay people last month), it’s “free speech” and “both sides”.

So I say again:

Objecting to NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem is racist.

Don’t like being racist?  Then stop with the knee-jerk objections and listen.
