    So far from what I've seen the NFL and his catch have said if he don't wanna stand he don't have to. There's nothing mandating a player stand for the anthem so there's no punishment they can levy that would stick in terms of suspensions

    I support the brother for doing what he feels is right. A lot of people stand up and go along with the national anthem out of fear of being singled out for not doing it. If more people felt comfortable I think you'd see this more often.

    Ice Cube and Omar Epps have a scene about this in Higher Learning...

    Fudge stayed 🤬 on 🤬 lol.

    It's interesting to see how they'll handle this. The NFL is very corporate right wing conservative. The owners, GM's, network analyst (Mike Ditka, Terry Bradshaw etc) & even fans are more of Rush Limbaugh republican way of thinking. What does that mean? A large portion of their fan base is cops, military armed forces. They're prolly looking at Kaep like he's BLM & a black terrorists lol. The NFL don't wanna touch anything regarding police brutality. But at the same time most of your players are african american, so they're watching this 🤬 too.

    (Waiting for Richard Sherman or some other 🤬 to denounce Kaep, and bring up black on black crime)

    This is a country where they dragged our innocent ancestors out their housed at night, 🤬 the mother and daughters in front of their families, then lynched them and threwa party under the bodies.

    Any Black man who stands against their tyranny is killed. 🤬 your flag saulute.

    Every black person that views him/herself as black first and is aware of these realities will chuckle at the thought of saluting the flag and standing & placing your hand on your heart during the national anthem being absolutle sacrosanct must-dos.

    People so stupid. He didnt say he was oppressed, he feels he doesnt want to salute to a flag that represents a country, his country, that isnt doing right to black people.

    Its his opinion. Humans always so 🤬 hurt over opinions. White people acting like colin not standing for one raggedy ass anthem for like the third time is going to collapse America. LOL

    How good do we have it in America that people are losing their mind over one football players 2 sentence opinion.

    Musim slave trade was worst.

    Some historians estimate that between A.D. 650 and 1900, 10 to 20 million people were enslaved by Arab slave traders. Others believe over 20 million enslaved Africans alone had been delivered through the trans-Sahara route alone to the Islamic world.

    Dr. John Alembellah Azumah in his 2001 book, The Legacy of Arab-Islam in Africa estimates that over 80 million Black people more died en route.

    The Arab slave trade typically dealt in the sale of castrated male slaves. Black boys between the age of 8 and 12 had their scrotums and penises completely amputated to prevent them from reproducing. About six of every 10 boys bled to death during the procedure, according to some sources, but the high price brought by eunuchs on the market made the practice profitable.

    Some men were castrated to be eunuchs in domestic service and the practice of neutering male slaves was not limited to only Black males.

    “The calipha in Baghdad at the beginning of the 10th Century had 7,000 black eunuchs and 4,000 white eunuchs in his palace,” writes author Ronald Segal in his 2002 book, Islam’s Black Slaves: The Other Black Diaspora.
