    Once again this shows that as long as blacks play the roles yt what them to play everything if fine. But the second a back stands up for his, or her race...all hell brakes lose. I've seen of Fb fan claiming they are fans no more, etc... As you may have guessed, many of them are white. I can't blame them, they don't understand as hard as they may try to. They don't see how they benefit from their white privilege. That is why Jared can be out in less that 5 years, but a black selling weed can and will get way more time.

    Peace!

    Come on Mark :facepalm:

    Mark Cuban defends Colin Kaepernick's decision to protest national anthem and US flag


    The move caused a firestorm from those who rebuked the move of protesting the very thing that gives him the rights to protest and from those who praised him for using his platform as a star athlete to become a social activist.

    One of those who defended Kaepernick was Mark Cuban, who took to Twitter to offer a levelheaded perspective. Cuban noted that he may disagree with Kaepernick's message but praised him for showing that protest can be both peaceful and effective.

    Mark has it right, but the thing that kills me is the number of blacks in the NFL that is speaking against him. I'm lost as to why they can't comprehend his reasons Victor Cruz is one of them, I don't care about the white ones, I already know what they think. But I remember Ali faced the same ridicule, had good reasons, and stayed true to his convictions. I also know the media is playing their game of pitting black against black. The really only show or mention the black sports stars that disagree with him, but don't really do the same for those that stand with him.

    Peace!

    Exactly, speaking personally for a moment, especially having help write a book on racism, recently, and seeing all of this unfold, America is a powder keg bout to explode.

    Was that poetry? ... seeing all of this unfold, America is a powder keg, bout to explode?

    :thinking:

    nah ... its a one liner though, competing with elder bro.

    The election of our dear brutha Obama has really shown the true colors of the whites here in America. We have been in this land too long, and have gotten to far away from the struggle when you have blacks defying other blacks for standing up and speaking out. This is part of the conditioning that yt has done to us. He has materialistically starved us for so long that now that we have money, fame, etc. We are afraid to loose it, even if it effects his directly.

    Peace!
