Kneeling in protest, by football players, during the national anthem has become a popular way to express contempt for America these days.
The players believe they are showing solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement but what they’re really doing is disrespecting the very system that gives them their privileged lifestyles.
Americans understand that there is an issue with young black males being killed by police, and sometimes the use of deadly force was unjustifiable.
More often than not, however, angry African-Americans have reacted in violence before they even know the full facts of the case. That’s how the Black Lives Matter movement was born, largely credited to the biased mainstream media and the uninformed, off-the-cuff remarks of president Obama.
Now, the repercussions of National Football League (NFL) players kneeling during the Star Spangled Banner have ignited a response from the fans to the tune of a big loss in revenues and some NFL teams are reacting.
Right Wing News reported just such a reaction:
Antonio Cromartie decided to follow Colin Kaepernick’s lead and kneel for the National Anthem. But, it appears that Cromartie’s decision may have cost him big time.
The Indianapolis Colts cornerback took a knee and raised his fist during Sunday’s game with the Jacksonville Jaguars in London. To further slap his fellow Americans in the face, he then stood for “God Save The Queen.”
On Tuesday, Cromartie got his pink slip and was released from the Colts as reported in the video below. I hope other players take notice!
Cromartie lost out in a 3 million dollar deal he signed with the Indianapolis Colts when he got fired.
Maybe this will leave an impression in the minds of the players to be a little more respectful of the system that made them rich. The American system! It’s not perfect but it’s a lot better than many other places right now. Especially Syria. We need to be thankful for what we have been given or we could very easily lose it!
