    That's where you're completely wrong.

    I have legit concerns about black kids that have to grow up surrounded by nonsense. I'm genuinely interested in how the situation can be resolved. The answer is unequivocally not pointing fingers at the police.

    It is people like your hero Kaepernick that I'm against not the black kids whose surroundings limit their probability for success and increase their chances of death at at young age. Those kids didn't choose that life. The community that surrounds them chooses their life for them. Right now kids are being brain-washed about this Police issue.

    Keapernick is a moron and I'm a moron-ist not a race-ist.

    People like you and Kaepernick make the situation worse, not better.

    Nobody puts effort into this issue because people like you immediately claim racist. You can't debate the issue on facts so you claim people that don't agree with you are racist.

    The black kid in the hood could have a bright future but people like you and Kaepernick teach them to focus on hate and blaming other people.

    The opportunities are available in this country. I bought, remodeled and sold houses for several years. The workers in that industry are predominantly hispanic. Many of them came here with literally nothing. No possessions, money or education and they didn't speak the language. Most of them now lead a middle class lifestyle and many have their own businesses now. Their kids don't live in high crime, high poverty areas. Meanwhile the black kid in the hood does grow up in high crime high poverty areas. The reason this happens is that people like you and Kaepernick convinced that kid's parents to focus on blaming the police,the government, etc. for their problems and told them their lives are hopeless.

    I totally agree, I could see the NFL being a 2nd or 3rd tier sport in 20 years. I was talking to one of my best friends yesterday about this and he said almost word for word what you posted here. My oldest son is 10 and I talk to a significant number of parents that won't let their kids play football because of the CTE issue.

    What specifically? You do not even argue merit anymore. I personally find that pathetic.

    I find it fascinating that you think you can tell the race of posters here by what they write.

    How far you can jump from one point to another without realizing you are arguing just for the sake of argument.

    You dodge any point I make so this does not mean very much to me. I have been talking about what they players have been protesting for consistently just as I did in that post.

    You were wrong in your characterization of Kaepernick's positions. I showed how you were wrong and you started this tactic. It's common behavior.

    Who said I did any of that? The demographics come from fan statistics.

    Are you not a white male over 30 or something or you just looking for something to be vicariously mad about?

    Sorry to cast dispersion on the demographic but I'm Puerto Rican from New Jersey, LOL. I thought Cowboys fans came in all shapes sizes genders and ethnicity's? It may come as a suprise to some but there are a variety of thought and opinions among various races. Again. I apologize for not fitting the stereotype in which you have decided is correct. Does it help if I don't like rice and beans?

    Okay. I'm not going to do a poll of the board. I don't think Reality would approve but 80% of Cowboys fans are white. I never said that individuals behaved in one way or another either.

    That being said if you get a bunch of white older men from Texas this is what you are going to hear.

    For some reason, I no longer see a "report" button. Check out comment #274 of this thread. AbeBeta calls xwalker a racist...
    twice actually. Read the thread. You'll see a "tiki torch" comment which implies white suprimist. There's more.

    The problem is that Fuzzy uses racial profiling.

    No, I said Kaepernick has never articulated a coherent position on police training issues like the Tamir Rice case. You posted one stupid, incorrect statement Kaepernick made that had the word "training" in it and then declared victory.

    At this point Kaepernick could break wind and you would say he had performed Hamlet.

    Kaepernick said that beauticians got more training than the 8 weeks that cops get. That is a coherent position and a compelling one.

    You were wrong.

    This has become a cultural divide thanks to our bully-in -chief. It's not only a NFL protest but all sports and celebrities are unifying.

    Its actually bringing more respect to a larger segment around the country standing up to social injustices and inequalities which the flags freedom represents all because our Baby Huey feelings were hurt Curry didn't want to come to WH. So he begun his bullying to rile up his base.

    Cops get 8 weeks? That is news to my two brothers and brother-in-law who all went for 6 months+.........

    Two of them are homicide detectives now and the other is working on a chopper. FWIW, they have little problem with this anthem stuff but it is becoming a nuisance to them, mostly due to the media pushing agendas.

    This started under Obama, at least get your facts straight. Trump may have added fuel to the fire but to blame him is irresponsible. I think it is fair to say Obama started the divide and Trump is continuing it.

    I forget what it was he said exactly. Itis true that cops get less training than beauticians.

    Rodney King much? Cops and minorities have been an issue for more than a century.

    Obama sent the DOJ out to Ferguson and Baltimore. Oh and he was black.
