In case you weren't aware, or have only been tracking what football players do during the national anthem... There was a shooting in an American church today.
A person died in Tennessee, today.
I know it's classy and popular to hate on the President (because OMG did you hear what he said today?) and the constant media-hysteria rakes in dollars and good ratings, but... someone died today. People have been sitting during the anthem since last season (NFL) and other sports/Olympics since it became our 'National Anthem' in 1913.
But Trump said something? Oh gee, let's continue the 'hysteria-over-everything-since-the-election' and ruin NFL Sunday for everyone while continually dividing everyone apart with another relatively non-issue.
This is LITERALLY another problem created by government. People act like NFL players standing for the anthem has been a longtime thing but it only became a permanent fixture in 2009 when the military gave the NFL a bunch of money to promote patriotism during a period of prolonged war. Before that, teams weren't required to be on the field until after the anthem (though they were on sometimes at their discretion).
The media molds the national dialog. 90% of it is distraction.
Let's talk about our $20 Trillion debt. The Drug War which disproportionately affects minorities. Civil Asset Forfeiture allows police to take money and property without even bringing charges against citizens. None of our elected leaders are ever accountable while citizens are (because it's the law, and we're a 'Nation of Laws'). People are committing physical violence against others based on religious beliefs. Our social security system is mathematically unsustainable. Our public policies do nothing bad add costs and regulations, yet we want more? We have this thing called the Federal Reserve which isn't discussed because it requires people to learn about something that's not taught in school.
Let's have a conversation.
I'm not a fan of people sitting during the anthem, but if you're seeking attention, start a conversation. Don't do it just because "OMG Trump said words that hurt my feelings".
Want to sit during the anthem? Want to protest? Want to start a dialog? I haven't heard any real dialog past the 20-second Colin Kaepernick interview clip (wearing a Che shirt, no less) where he says there is "injustice in the U.S".
OK, and now what?
Let's have a conversation. I'm sure the media and the talking points will stick with Anti-Trump rhetoric, pride-in-nation patriotism, "those who have died for the flag"...
Let's talk about injustice of the Drug War and spending money our children will have to pay back. Let's talk about why we ONLY vote in people who promise to spend MORE money our children will have to pay back. Let's talk about why people think it's OK to kill unsuspecting citizens in their place of worship because they disagree with their religious beliefs.
That's an injustice. But people will just talk about "Merica" talking points instead.
Just get politics out of my football.
