If we're scrutinizing the reparations that we already pay and asking for more, can we start with affirmative action for white hispanics like Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz? They come from countries where being white is a benefit, this benefit gives them the resources to come to America, and then they receive preferences designed to remedy the exact system they themselves benefited from. It's ludicrous.
Please give a citation to rebut my outpouring of support comment. The fact is that he, a back-up quarterback who was once good but became a bit of a team cancer, now has the league's best selling jersey, well in front of everyone else.And please also try to quantify your claim that the death threats that Kaepernick has received are equal to what Carlos and Smith received. Black civil rights leaders were actually getting assassinated when they did what they did.What...
Holy hell. Lee Child's Jack Reacher books were always a guilty pleasure but the last three I've read/tried to read have just been awful. Ridiculous plot holes, lazy writing, just really bad. Didn't even bother finishing Make Me and Bad Luck and Trouble was as stupid as its title. Last week - Extreme Prey, a Lucas Davenport book by John Sandford was good as always. Grunt by Mary Roach (she also wrote Bonk, a neat book about sex). She's a little too cute sometimes,...
If this is what you actually believe my post says, then just stop reading my posts.If you understand that it's not what my post says and are just using a lazy logical fallacy to be right-thinking, at least spice it up with pictures, like NorCal did. Otherwise it's just a rather unimaginative cherry-picked strawman.
I can't believe you're sticking to this nonsense. After his "meh, I think I'll keep sitting" protest he still has a multi-million dollar job as a backup quarterback. His jersey is now the top-selling jersey in league (the proceeds of which, to his credit, he's donating to charity). He's seen an outpouring of support from the media and fans.Tommie Smith and John Carlos had death threats in a time when a "death threat" wasn't just a vague allusion on an anonymous social...
That's spreading to sports radio too. It's a mess. Cowherd, Bomani, LeBetard just do clickbait all day. No attempt at research, just coming up with a trolling idea and basing a show around it. Peyton Manning is underrated. Or the Pirates logo is misogynistic. Or Latin players feel excluded from the NFL. Or Arian Foster is better than Barry Sanders. Just stupid arguments and navel-gazing all day long.
I feel sorry for the complete fucking idiot that liked your comment.Do you honestly think that two amateur athletes raising their fists on the gold medal stage at the Olympics in the 60's is even remotely comparable to a multimillionaire backup quarterback not standing for the anthem? Are you joking? Two people faced death threats and racial epithets when they arrived home. The other person saw their jersey sales rise to 3rd in the league.And nobody even noticed CK's...
It's truly a delight looking at all the memes Ole Miss fans were posting at halftime. And this man looks exactly like my high school football coach. Worst choke I've seen since the "Choke at the Doak". All misguided bragging aside, this is classic Jimbo Fisher. He's a great coach, but he's too worried about how his gameplan is being implemented in the first half to focus on anything else. I can't remember a time we made it to the 2:00 minute mark of the first half...
How much longer do you think the FBI will collect this data? I don't think it would last another Democratic president's term.
The perfect millennial protest. Remaining sitting. It's about the only thing that takes less effort than clicking "like" on that Anti-Kony Facebook page. Well done, Colin.
