So many have no idea that NFL players are using their position to bring light to the centuries of injustice that has crippled generations of Black Americans in this country, Poor living conditions, poisoned environments and rampant poverty has destroyed their families and made even a free education unattainable for most, People of color from other countries or cultures have no idea what Black American people have gone through and continually suffer from. It is not a level playing field, Plus, most recently the American flag has gone the way of the confederate flag. Every time I see it waving out the back of a pickup or hanging from a car mirror I think racists. Who in their right mind would pledge allegiance to that? That is not my America! The lines have become blurred and we have become a nation in conflict with ourselves. Wake up America! It’s time to stop talking about what it means to be great Americans and to start being great Americans.
