It’s been hard, but I’ve been trying to stay less political on social media lately. I’m sure everybody’s timelines are full of political posts like mine. You probably don’t need me adding to the clutter. For the most part that means that I’ve been rather quiet on social media lately. So I’ll just vent here instead, where nobody has to read it, because who blogs anymore?
Like every Sunday, I watched the NFL games this past weekend. I thought it was great how players were kneeling and standing united. Players on both sides of the issue supporting each other. Our country needs more of this.
Since when has kneeling been disrespectful anyway? I think it’s a reasonably peaceful way to bring awareness to some of the injustices going on in our country. It’s not meant as an insult to our military.
If you don’t agree with the kneeling, then don’t kneel and move on with your life. Allowing someone to use their constitutional rights isn’t going to hurt you.
Patriotism is almost like a religion. Everybody has their own ways to show their patriotism. Some are more private other more public. Kneeling or standing doesn’t really matter. It’s what’s in your head and your hart at that time. Are you thinking of the people that fought for our country, or are you thinking about buying your next beer? That’s what really matters.
I myself would probably stand, but I’m white. I can’t know what it’s like to be black. It’s not possible. I can only try to understand, listen, and support them. It really annoys me when a white person complains about BLM. You have no right to complain because you have no idea what their lives are like.
And FUCK the blues lives matter people. NOBODY is against the cops. I can only assume these people think all black people should be shot dead in the streets right? Fuck them.
