Ali was stripped of his belts as a result of this, but what was the view of the white community in 1967?
While the blacks were justifiably angry, the whites were just like Archie Bunker-and we’re seeing history repeat itself here with Colin Kaepernick.
Why should Colin Kaepernick stand for a flag which allows blacks to be murdered by the police?
Why should Colin Kaepernick stand for a flag which represents inequality and injustice?
Why should Colin Kaepernick stand for a flag which espouses bigotry under the Trump regime?
We should all kneel whenever that British drinking song is played. Conservatives, however, are so fucking stupid that they have no idea the music for this country’s national anthem was derived from a tune sung by British alcoholics-which tells you just how dumb they are.
One must admit that nearly all conservatives are racist. There’s a nice picture of Donald Trump, keeping his hands at his sides while an Uncle Tom and another Republican put their respective right hands over their chests.
As for myself, I don’t plan on standing for that rag anytime soon.
Americans with developmental disabilities are subjected to budget cuts when it’s
American soldiers who should be punished for the war crimes they committed in Iraq.
American schools are underfunded.
American children tend to get into trouble after 3 p.m. because Republicans cut the budgets on parks and libraries-which was the idea all along: to throw the poor in prison.
The American Indian populations are still having their lands exploited and stolen by business interests.
Blacks are murdered in cold blood by white cops.
Why should anyone stand for a flag which represents all of that?
Only a coward or a murderer stands for the American flag today. Those who do stand for the national anthem and the hypocritical American flag should at least put their money where their bullshit is and either buy American vehicles or shut up.
Better yet, conservatives should concern themselves with the idea of looking out for their brothers, as Jesus Christ commanded, rather than pick fights they can’t win with people they’ll never accept as equals.
Actually, liberals and those with developmental disabilities are actually a conservative’s intellectual and spiritual superior, but we’ll save that subject for another time.
You know, upon this conclusion of writing this, I just came to the realization that, once again, conservatives use this as yet another way to justify their hatred of blacks.
