Oh the outrage! Holy hell, Colin didn’t stand for the national anthem! Let’s burn his jersey and condemn him because he’s mean and not respecting our flag.
Well…that would be fine if it wasn’t so hypocritical.
What about these guys? http://www.arrestrecords.com/the-15-worst-crimes-committed-by-nfl-players/
Where’s the outrage for them?
And how about my favorite, Michael Vick? Do I really need to rehash that?
Apparently I do. Here, take a look at one of his dogs:
Not only did he fight dogs, he took his 2 family dogs (that his kids adored) and threw them into the fighting pit and laughed as they were torn apart. He has admitted that he got off on it, loved the horror that he created, and never would have stopped if he hadn’t been caught. Yes, it’s true. Go check out YouTube, but I warn you..it’s beyond disturbing.
He never served one minute of time for what he did to the dogs. He’s never paid one cent to the thousands of people who took his dogs in, rehabilitated them and gave them homes. By the way, there’s not been one incident of aggression in any of the dogs. They are all doing well and are a beautiful testament to the kindness and loyalty of the breed.
Yet one man decides to not stand for the anthem and everyone loses their shit?
OK, then stop supporting the NFL. Stop watching their games and buying their merchandise. You may not like what Colin is doing, but it’s not illegal (see above) and he is a man of color, so all you white people need to stand down.
I don’t care if someone stands during the anthem or not. I care about the guy down the street that is molesting kids or the woman who is being beaten by her husband or the child that goes to bed hungry or the dog fights that I am sure are in my neighborhood.
Save your outage and actions for shit that matters.
Not for some athlete that hasn’t harmed you, his family, friends or co-workers.
