Something to Think About …. “✊🏽 #TakeAKnee …. Don’t Forget Why the Protest Began ✊🏽 …. “!!


~Eric Reid: Why Colin Kaepernick and I Decided to Take a Knee~

RESPECTFUL GESTURE

Sept. 25, 2017

In early 2016, I began paying attention to reports about the incredible number of unarmed black people being killed by the police. The posts on social media deeply disturbed me, but one in particular brought me to tears: the killing of Alton Sterling in my hometown Baton Rouge, La. This could have happened to any of my family members who still live in the area. I felt furious, hurt and hopeless. I wanted to do something, but didn’t know what or how to do it. All I knew for sure is that I wanted it to be as respectful as possible.

A few weeks later, during preseason, my teammate Colin Kaepernick chose to sit on the bench during the national anthem to protest police brutality. To be honest, I didn’t notice at the time, and neither did the news media. It wasn’t until after our third preseason game on Aug. 26, 2016, that his protest gained national attention, and the backlash against him began.

After hours of careful consideration, and even a visit from Nate Boyer, a retired Green Beret and former NFL player, we came to the conclusion that we should kneel, rather than sit, the next day during the anthem as a peaceful protest.

We chose to kneel because it’s a respectful gesture.

I remember thinking our posture was like a flag flown at half-mast to mark a tragedy.

THIS IS AMERICA

Quite a strong message.

Here’s the Saturday Night Performance.

The title is right on target:

This IS America!

Be forewarned.

Some content may be offensive to some who may shy away from the sad reality.

I had to look up the lyrics to get the full meaning.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms and was adopted on December 15, 1791, as part of the first ten amendments contained in the Bill of Rights.

The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that the right belongs to individuals, while also ruling that the right is not unlimited and does not prohibit all regulation of either firearms or similar devices. State and local governments are limited to the same extent as the federal government from infringing this right per the incorporation of the Bill of Rights.

The Second Amendment was based partially on the right to keep and bear arms in English common law and was influenced by the English Bill of Rights of 1689.

Keith Olbermann, #116 …. ““😱 …. Drumpf’s DACA Decision is a Grim Turning Point …. 😱…. In Spite of Great Love and Heart …. “!!

~~September 6, 2017~~ 

Drumpf: I have a ‘great heart’ and a ‘great love’ for Dreamers

IF THIS IS GREAT HEART AND LOVE

I would hate to see the ‘no heart, no love version’

They say it’s 800,000 people affected.

I’d say it’s more because you have to include their extended families who would also have to leave this country. You can’t separate the family.

Can you imagine?

Broken dreams, undone future plans, careers, planned events and so much more. The American dream? 

It’s a fallacy!

BLine

Drumpf said Tuesday, September 5, he has a “great heart” and a “great love” for those who are protected from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, hours after his administration announced it was being rescinded.

The Drumpf administration announced Tuesday morning it will roll back DACA by March 5, giving Congress six months to come up with a permanent, legislative solution for young illegal immigrants currently shielded from the threat of deportation, called Dreamers, under the program.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the administration’s decision to rescind DACA, and the president’s remarks before the meeting on tax reform are his first public comments on the move.

Trevor Noah’s Devastated Monologue … Philando Castile dash-cam footage …. ‘It broke me’ …. “!!


Trevor

~~June 23, 2017~~ 

JURY OF YOUR PEERS

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

Trevor Noah isn’t an American.

Trevor (born 20 February 1984) is a South African television and radio host, and comedian, known for his role as host of The Daily Show on American network Comedy Central since September 2015.

He is a Black man … he knows how this feels.  

America should be ashamed but then again, there is so much to be ashamed for, that this is only a small drop in a huge bucket.

Sad!!

HortyRex©

BLine

On Wednesday night’s episode, June 21, of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah devoted the second half of his monologue to his devastation after seeing the just-released dash-cam video footage of the Minnesota police officer who fatally shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop last year.

Last week, the officer was acquitted on all charges, including manslaughter.

Philando

I won’t lie to you.

When I watched this video, it broke me.

It just – it broke me. You see so many of these videos, and you start to get numb, but this one? Seeing the child, that little girl, getting out of the car, after watching a man get killed, it broke my heart into little pieces.

Like, I thought of every joke people make about “Oh, the most confusing day in the hood is Father’s Day”:

“People don’t know where their parents are, ha-ha. Black dads.” That’s a black dad that’s gone.

That’s a child that grows up not knowing what it’s like to have somebody in their life.

It’s one thing to have the system against you – the district attorneys, the police unions, the courts – that’s one thing. But when a jury of your peers, your community, sees this evidence and decides that even this is self-defense, that is truly depressing. Because what they’re basically saying is in America, it is officially reasonable to be afraid of a person just because they are black.

And that’s the truth of what we saw with this verdict.

ASS-KISSING CONTEST 

Drumpf Cabinet Meeting Turned into a Bizarre Ass-Kissing Contest

Never seen in my lifetime, and believe you me, there are a lot of things I’ve seen in my many years.

Talk about decorum, self-respect, dignity, values, self-esteem, honor, morality, gravity, stateliness … where did they go?

BLine

On Monday, June 12, Drumpf took a break from yelling on Twitter about how the “fake media” is against him and found another way to stroke his pathological need for affection.

During a televised cabinet meeting, he said he had done as much as any president from FDR, then asked the assembled crew of billionaires, retired generals, and arch-conservative politicians what they thought the administration’s accomplishments thus far had been.

It was an exercise in attempting to satiate Drumpf’s insatiable ego, and all the officials took the opportunity to kiss as much presidential ass as possible.
