national anthem protest
Hammer-thrower Gwen Berry is speaking out about her protest of the American flag and national anthem at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials in an unapologetic effort to clear up any misconceptions.
A high school basketball announcer caught on a hot mic hatefully directing the N-word at players as they kneeled during the playing of the national anthem has blamed his racist outburst on being diabetic and having low blood sugar. Seriously.
NFL teams have called Colin Kaepernick a distraction, but Antonio Brown has been way more of a sideshow than a silent kneeling protest could ever be.
The reaction to Bill Cosby publicly shaming low-income Black people was similar to the reaction to Jay-Z blaming single parent households for negative police relations with Black people, since both were flawed messengers.
Civil rights lawyers said the coincidentally timed collision of the NYPD firing Eric Garner's killer with Jay-Z's social justice partnership with the NFL combined a begrudging chorus of "what took so long?" with the realization that while some semblance of justice had been established, it was still largely elusive.
Social media mocks NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's explanation for why no NFL team has signed Colin Kaepernick.
