Keeping it a buck, I’m having a REALLY hard time holding my anger at bay, son. I mean, organizations like the NFL aren’t even trying to hide their bigotry, man. At this point, I truly hope the (mostly Black) players understand what’s going on here: the team owners don’t give a FUCK about racial injustice, fam. All in all, by approving a policy that forces players to stand for the National Anthem, Roger Goodell and company have effectively spit on the idea of a peaceful protest.
Ok, for those who are unaware, the NFL just pulled some DEFCON 1 fuckery, bruh. So, the owners unanimously voted for a rule that forces all on-field team personnel to stand for the anthem. Basically, if any player or staff member is on the field and doesn’t stand, they will be fined. Furthermore, if anybody wants to “exercise” their right to protest, they have to stay behind in the locker room. *Sigh* The league has essentially trampled on the First Amendment, son. They’ve taken away people’s ability to freely express themselves.
Look, let’s just cut the nonsense, man. On the real, giving folks the “option” to stay in the locker room is basically their way of saying “we don’t want anybody to see this little protest.” At this point, I don’t know how many times I’ve written about this, fam. But, the call to kneel, pioneered by Colin Kaepernick, was NEVER about the fucking flag, bruh. It was NEVER about our troops, son. For God‘s sake, it was a SILENT way to show solidarity with all of the people of color who were and are brutalized by an injustice system. Now, thanks to morons like Donald Trump, the movement has become nothing more than political fodder. All I know is, this country is hell-bent on stifling freedom, folks.
In the end, everyone has a choice to make, son. The American public has to decide if we’re going to keep supporting a valueless dictatorship. The NFL players have to decide if they’re going to remain silent while their rights and beliefs are stepped on. Ultimately, I was done with the NFL last season, man. I mean, I’m a diehard New York Giants fan, but I couldn’t bring myself to watch any of their games, fam. By and by, I can’t lend my support to a league that doesn’t give a flying fuck about racial equality, bruh. Side note, major shout-out to Christopher Johnson, CEO of the New York Jets, for offering to pay any player fines. All I can say is, he’s a real one, people. In any case, fuck the NFL and anybody who supports them, folks. LC out.
P.S. I hope the haters don’t think I haven’t been paying attention to Kaepernick’s collusion case, son. Shit, he’s already uncovered information that several teams viewed him as a starting quarterback. So, we can put that whole “he’s not good enough to play in the league” bullshit to bed, man. Listen, we all know why he doesn’t have a job, fam: the owners wanted to punish the “uppity Negro,” bruh. *Sigh* This country is the fucking worst, people. That is all.
