Could it actually be happening? Are American whites finally taking my advice and dumping the Racially Correct football farce?
Since I wrote last weekend, black players from the Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, San Francisco 49ers, Los Angeles Rams and the Denver Broncos joined Colin Kaepernick to protest the American national anthem—and some of the players didn’t just take a knee, they raised a defiant black power fist into the air. The big question: would this impact viewership for the NFL’s opening weekend games? [Black Power Fists Were Raised During NFL’s Opening Weekend, Spin.com, by Brian Josephs, September 12, 2016]
Answer: Yes. The numbers are in, and the viewership for kickoff game between the Broncos and Carolina Panthers was down eight percent from the prior year; the audience for NBC’s Sunday Night Football was down 14 percent from the prior year; and both of ESPN’s Monday Night Football games down as well in the ratings from the prior year. [Week One ratings were generally down, Pro Football Talk, by Mike Florio, September 13, 2016]Read the rest there, but comment on it here. And, of course, share it everywhere.
But be aware: black players are just starting their protest against... what's left of white civilization as well as law and order in America. [Eagles players plan protest during anthem Monday, Philly.com, 9-16-16]:
THE NATIONAL conversation that began in the preseason when 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick elected to sit down for the national anthem will continue when the Eagles take the field Monday night in Chicago, veteran safety Malcolm Jenkins said.
Jenkins told 94 WIP radio hosts Glen Macnow and Jody McDonald Friday evening that he and teammates expect to make a symbolic gesture during the anthem.
"For me, it has nothing to do with this country, or the flag or the anthem itself - really, it's just to continue to push forward the conversation about social injustice . . . that's a range of things from police brutality to wages and job opportunities, education. It's just a lot of things systematically that have been set up in this country, since its inception, that really put minorities, especially African Americans, at a disadvantage, when you talk about quality of life, and actually growing in this country," Jenkins said.
"I'm going to keep that conversation going to as many people as we can, while also doing my part in bringing forth change. This has been a hot topic. The more players that join in, the further this conversation goes. After the intial shock of what Kaepernick did, and once everybody started to listen to what his message was, it's become a really good conversation that's gone along nationwide."Keep it, guys. Keep it up!
And, more importantly, keep turning it off whitey!
