    Or to wait till marriage.

    Or to not do drugs.

    Or to not have kids till after marriage.

    Or any number of other issues, that would not be Lefty approved.

    I'm pretty sure the NFL players know none of that matters to racist cops so they concentrate more on things people can control

    First thing. By the players protesting they aren't bringing attention to anything other than what jerks they are. I work with many very liberal people who love football and they stopped watching because they don't want to see protests during the game.

    If the players and league truly wanted to help people they would find organizations who are trying to help people and give them millions of dollars worth of free air time. They could even get Budweiser and Pepsi to donate too and those companies could put it in there ads.

    Second thing. How do you know that the cops are racist? Could it be the area? Any cop or any person for that matter will act differently in a nice area than a ghetto. The vast majority of cops simply want to make it through the day and see their families.

    I disagree. They are bringing attention to the facts regarding police brutality. I know thats what caught my attention.

    You dont seem to able to fully comprehend the fact that the players do a lot of these things regardless of if they call you and let you know.

    I know because Ive been called racist names by cops, harassed and threatened and subject to the same actions towards other people that look like me. You dont have to be a rocket scientist to figure out someone is racist just because they dont write a full confession on the matter. Not my problem they cant handle their jobs. If they cant be professional then they need to quit and let better people take their place.

    You've been confronted by "racist" cops and yet you are still here.
    Doesn't fit the narrative.

    Maybe you'be been called a couple of names, cops do that to lots of people, the world shouldn't have to stop for that, should it?

    Thats correct. I have survived racist cops....so far.
    It may not fit your narrative. Dont confuse your narrative with mine or the NFL players or other Black people.

    I never suggested the world should stop. Why would i want the world to stop over racist cops? I'd rather the pigs were euthanized and their world stopped.

    It is what caught your attention, but many other people just associate it with a crappy player trying not to get fired. At least that is what the guys at work tell me about Kaepernick.

    You don't seem to comprehend that I don't care what they do. I am simply pointing out ways they can bring attention to whatever issues they want in a way that won't piss off or alienate their fans and do some good.

    You are either obeying the officers when confronted or you just aren't trying hard enough.

    That has nothing to do with your claim that they arent bringing attention to police brutality when even a light skim on google points out thats exactly what they are doing. Not my concern what other people associate it with. They dont represent the masses.

    Youre no one important so your suggestions lack credibility. Its obvious you have no clue what youre talking about. You actually thought NFL players didnt do work in communities that needed their help. How impactful could your suggestions be in light of such ignorance?
