But you have to also applaud the Dodgers organization. Instead of taking a knee to protest police, the Dodgers invited LAPD police officers to sing the National Anthem. They did a wonderful job.
"It humbled me. I was actually humbled. I was thankful. And I was like this is what America is all about, standing as one, being united and the National Anthem should do that for everyone.” - Rosalind Curry LAPD

Sounds like a dog-whistle way of saying you don't like Blacks speaking up or protesting.

Mark, you cant be serious! My remarks are not racist and I think you know it. Stirring up the pot a bit, arent you. Shame on you!

Little Marky is well known as the resident Troll here. He does his best to express his liberal hypocrisy in an antagonistic fashion . He gets routinely smacked down, proven wrong, and is forced eat most of his words. It’s actually becoming quite entertaining. I personally want to thank Little Marky for his hilarity and amusement! His cute little emoji tells you all you need to know!!

All out of intelligent responses Leroy?

He pretty much has you pegged Mark. About the only thing he has wrong is that your emoji/avatar is not cute, it's childish.

You are the one calling the Black players of the NFL "despicable." How you can pretend that isn't racist is beyond me. If by "stirring up the pot," you mean me pointing out your bigotry then I plead guilty. Who knows, you might not have been aware of it and I did you a service.

Carlos Ponce

Where does he mention "Black Players" Little Marky???? He doesn't.
Are all who take a knee of African-American ethnicity? No, they are not.

Mark, read my post again. I never called black players despicable, I wrote that those in the NFL who “take the knee”might be compared to those in MLB who show due reapect to our country. The post was more about how proud the Astros have made us all tather than how disgusting it is to disrespect our flag and anthem. Why dont you find a day other than Veterans Day to show your support for those who have no use for our veterans. I’ll bet you never served. How could you take the position you have if you did?

Craig Lindberg

Mark, you are the racist here. It's time for you to quit pretending otherwise.

Sorry, wrong. I am a disabled Vietnam Veteran. Being a war veteran I have seen the sausage made and I am not so in awe of the pageantry anymore. Bringing much needed attention to a critical national problem during the national anthem seems more than reasonable to me. Especially in the way it was done. No one inhibited the anthem, shouted down the anthem, nor waved protest flags or signs. As I veteran I appreciated the respectful way the protesters used the right I helped to defend. It gave me a sense of pride. People who try to use this protest to stir up racial hatred, on the other hand...

Your clear inference was the Black Lives Matters protesters were despicable, disgusting, and they were destroying the NFL.

Poor Carlos, forced to pretend the BLM protests were not about Black people.

Little Marky, ask your doctor to check your meds. You're suffering from delusions.

I'm not the one trying to pretend the BLM protests aren't about Black people Carlos.

Carlos Ponce

Little Marky. Is it about Black people? The protest may be but the protesters aren't just Black. And that's who's being addressed here, those who take a knee. Why do you just single out Black knees? There were white knees and brown knees involved here. It is NOT THEIR SKIN COLOR that's in question here. It is their ACTIONS being addressed.Change your avatar from "FACTS" to "CLUELESS".

Not at all. I don't see you calling out racism. I see you implementing the primary leftist political tactic of trying to hide in plain sight by pointing fingers at others.

Craig Lindberg

Charles, he knows it. Mark is dutifully following the liberal playbook - accuse your enemy of exactly who you are.
