  • Did the NFL not outlaw the players from wearing clothing or accessories that promoted their favorite cause? It had to be approved to wear pink or some other addition to their shoes, headbands, etc.

    Maybe they should loosen that requirement and let players protest in other ways so they don't feel the Flag has to be disrespected.

    Another solution would be for the league to request the sports media NOT promote the disrespectful activity by showing something else on the field, not them.

  • Good suggestions Steve. The NFL and NASCAR have opened a can of worm they cannot get back into the box.

    My idea was if the National Anthem was not played they would have no timely platform to garner the attention they seek. They would look rather foolish taking a knee at random times and random locations.

  • When we Kneel to the Lord to ask him for help it is not considered disrespectful, it is one way we humble ourselfs toGods authority and greatness. It is a sign of respect to him.

    Those kneeling before the flag is the same they are simply humbleing themselves and asking our nation to help address the cause of racism.

    The act of kneeling before something is a sign of humbling yourself to them and a show of respect and acknowledgment of the superiority of that being knelt before.

    What is offensive to the Flag is those who are manipulating the peacful actions of those who humble themselves before our flag aking our nation for help.

  • Help for what? The problem is the people kneeling. Please tell me what else the Government can do? Again I ask, what systems and what institutions are racist? The real problems as they exist today is not race but culture. The Government cannot fix culture, only those within the culture can. I have said many, many times if one wants respect they have to earn it, not demand it! Demanding respect has the opposite effect of gaining respect, it insures resentment.

    People keep attacking the Government as if governmental policies is the solution. It is most decidedly not the solution. Behavior of those within the culture demanding change for the betterment of their lives at any cost no matter how they act will guarantee no solution.

    The Government can never enact and enforce any legislation requiring someone to like someone. Only mutually desirable behaviors can cause peace and benevolence among peoples.

  • By the way, Keep it Simple, I appreciate you taking the time to express your views. I respectfully take exception to some of your views, but sane discussions are the only route to solutions, if solutions there be.
