So disappointed in Colin Kaepernick and his "protest" based in complete ignorance. The San Francisco 49ers apparently have lost their minds as well. Seems the NFL is sinking lower and lower into immorality and foolishness. 🙄
Debi K BaughmanHe actually does have that right, and, if he believes that what he does or says is going to affect and give those impressionable children their own rights to stand for the justice he is making a stand for, then he is obligated to say that. If he is the example for the children then, by not physically showing standing and showing honor to something he feels has lost that right of honor, what he has done is shown the youth a peaceful way of standing for what they believe,
Everyone of you claim that we need to stand for justice, and be willing to stand for it even if it goes against your interpretation or does not follow along with the way the herd is thinking.
So, is this something you only believe if it is your way of thinking? If He feels there is an injustice and If he believes that US is propagating it and If he feels that is going to affect the nation's youth, his own people's youth and right to stand against the herd, then he does have that right. Not only the right, but by the fact that you are holding him to an exampling, by those, your own standards, he is obligated to make that stand. This is how he chose to make it.
Whether we agree or fully agree with him or not, your opinion of his opinion is not even important....
If you, or if I see something that you, or I know is wrong, even if nobody else is aware of it, and we say nothing then we have let go of our freedoms and our rights to speak out on anything. Is this insane? To take that stand in a way that informs, or in a way that draws awareness with out actual harm? Because if it is, then somebody has already got you to believing that standing against injustice is a psychological illness. This makes the whole country ill and will remove the right to even disagree.
Chicago - Mayor Rahm Emanuel's civilian Police Board President, Lori Lightfoot, is pushing hard to make a major change to the Chicago police union's contract. She wants to remove the requirement that complainants sign a statement which attests that they are telling the truth.
The Tour de Rocklin offers riders a wonderful opportunity to get out and enjoy a day of Fall cycling while supporting an excellent cause. The event benefits the Aly and Izy Foundation, who help babies that are in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) and their families, and the Placer 10-35 Foundation, who assit peace officers in times of personal or professional tragedy.
