I want my own National Anthem too

In a post a week or two ago I swore I would never bow or take a knee. I may have to reconsider that position. If the NFL moves forward with their Race baiting and pandering, I may take a knee during the so-called “Black National Anthem”. Or a piss.

There is... no, let me do that again so you know I am shouting...THERE IS ONLY ONE NATIONAL ANTHEM AND IT IS THE STAR SPANGLED BANNERIt covers us all, every damn American, whether you are black, brown, white, red, purple or all of the hues in between.

Screw who ever thought of this asinine idea, Screw the NFL, and Screw any advertiser who sponsors it. The NFL is afraid of the bad press and economic power of the BLM. It is time they learned the economic power of true Americans.

I am done with the NFL if they move forward with this BS.

This is not bringing the nation together. This is reverse Jim Crow. It also proves that the whole kneeing thing really is about the Anthem and a protest against America in general. Kneel, don’t kneel, I don’t care, but do not expect me to support you.

Football is supposed to be about entertainment, not a political rally and if the billionaire owners and millionaire players cannot understand that basic concept I propose we hurt them where it will get their attention — right in the wallet. Show them the money indeed.

John Q. Public: I'm disgusted with football

Browns Fans: Rookies!

Have a happy 4th of July, Joe, and keep that flag flying!

Okay, do blacks want to be taken seriously as Americans and receive the same treatment whites do, or do they want to be set apart and be different?

Sounds like we're moving towards segregation to me. The civil rights movement of 60 years ago is being forgotten. What's next - separate bathrooms at NFL stadiums?

I apologize to everyone for my use of profanity.

I didn't know there is a black national anthem.

p.s. and now news writers are capitalizing Black but not White.

Many friends have stopped supporting the NFL in the past years because of the knee... This will definitely be my reason for not supporting them any longer...

Hope you and yours have a wonderful Independence Day!

p.s. - the language was perfect.
