NFL and NFL Players Disrespect the United States, Her Citizens and Her Soldiers
6-16-20, * -- If I have brain cancer, I don’t ask my dentist what I should do. If my car has a problem, I don’t seek help from a plumber! Why do you think the public cares what a football player thinks about politics? If we want to know about football, then depending on the information we seek, we might consult with you, but even a quarterback doesn’t seek advice on playing his position from a defensive tackle!
You NFL football players seem to have an over inflated view of yourselves, thinking because you enjoy working on such a large scale stage, that somehow your opinion about everything matters. The NFL realizes the importance of its “image” so it has rules that specify the clothes and insignia you can wear, the language you use and your “antics” after a touchdown or other “great” play.
However, you and your employer don’t seem to care that you disgrace the entire United States, its 320 million people and its military. The eyes of the world see you publicly disrespecting this country, its flag and its national anthem! America’s taxpaying citizens subsidize your plush work environments, yet you choose to use those venues to openly offend them.
Do you even understand what the flag of this country means to so many of its citizens before you choose to “take a knee” in protest of this “country" during our national anthem?
You may think - because you are paid so much money - that your job is tough, but you are clueless when it comes to tough. Let me show you those whose job is really tough.:
You are spoiled babies who stand around and have staff squirt GatorAid in your mouths, sit in front of misting cooling fans when it’s warm and sit on heated benches when it's cold. That’s not “tough” that's pampered. You may think that:
The sad reality is that many of NFL black football players who protest America have poor moral values; they don’t even care about their own children. The record of their out-of-wedlock children is very high; a few examples follow:
Unfortunately, the NFL has many players that are not to be respected and have no standing to criticize the USA and disrespect her military. Many fans have declared the games will be boycotted.

NFL Announces 'Black National Anthem' Will Also Be Played

The Black National Anthem*
Lift ev'ry voice and sing,
Till earth and heaven ring.
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty;
Let our rejoicing rise,
High as the list'ning skies,
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us,
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us;
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun,
Let us march on till victory is won.
Stony the road we trod,
Bitter the chast'ning rod,
Felt in the days when hope unborn had died;
Yet with a steady beat,
Have not our weary feet,
Come to the place for which our fathers sighed?
We have come over a way that with tears has been watered,
We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered,
Out from the gloomy past,
Here now we stand at last
Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast.
God of our weary years,
God of our silent tears,
Thou who has brought us thus far on the way;
Thou who has by Thy might,
Led us into the light,
Keep us forever in the path, we pray.
Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee,
everyday we lit
Shadowed beneath thy hand,
May we forever stand,
True to our God,
True to our native land.
*Song title: “Lift Every Voice and Sing”
Also known as: The Negro National Anthem
Song Writer: James Weldon Johnson: The poem was originally performed in honor of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday on February 12, 1900, and was later set to music in 1905 by Johnson’s brother John Rosamond
