Football players protesting on the field is ridiculous. They are on the job. They are being paid ridiculous amounts of money to play with a ball and entertain people.
What if people in other jobs stopped working and made a public spectacle of themselves and being disruptive? They'd be reprimanded and if it continued, fired.
But football players do it and its magically ok? They need to use their private lives to actually do something productive if they feel so strongly. Not use the time they're at work, being paid, while they can make a big show to get attention, but do nothing of any value to the cause they claim they are so worried about.
How about they leave their mansions, limo drivers and all the other excesses they have and go to Chicago themselves? Without camera crews. Why don't they contact police departments with a desire to understand what's really happening? Oh. Right. Because there's no press in that. No money. And they'll actually probably be shot by another black guy before ever being shot by a cop.
This problem is simple. If police stop you Don't act like an idiot, don't be a jerk, don't run and don't get shot.
It doesn't take a football player going on one knee to figure that out.
And if these people really cared they'd be in Chicago running out drug dealers, and making sure little kids could play outside without getting shot, not getting media coverage while working in "protest" to idiots doing idiotic things then getting shot.
All those knocks to the head are taking a serious toll on their brain functions.
