Is anyone else unbothered by Eminem taking a knee?

I guess I've changed my tune and that shows that I can admit when I'm wrong. I was excited for Trump after 8 years of Barry, but all the pettiness got old--going after people for wanting to demonstrate their feelings--who the eff cares. Take your knee in solidarity for Colin. Take your knee in solidarity for the rain forest. I don't care. He's not hurting anyone and it quite literally is the MOST peaceful way to protest (versus burning down buildings, etc.).

Also, I heard the NFL told him not to kneel. They also told Dre to remove anti-police lyrics and asked that Snoop not say/do anything gang-related. SMH. Do you think for one second they cared about pleasing the NFL?

Fiddy looks like he's at least 3/4 now.

Also, snoop threw up the crip fingers. Em did kneel. Not sure about Dre.

That's not the group you tell to do something and expect them to follow along.

Questions about the 1/2-time show:

[2]
Feb 14, 2022, 7:56 AM

1 - Is there a difference in Rap and Hip Hop? I don't like either.

2 - Do they intentionally hold the mike so you can't understand what they are saying?

3 - Is there some unwritten rule that requires these "performers" to grab their junk?

Could care less. They're not players or coaches, or have

[1]
Feb 14, 2022, 8:02 AM

anything to do with the game being played. People care a lot more when it's a player, or a coach, or a team, or a Commissioner. That impacts the game more.

Then again I could care less about the NFL. Wanted to go for the Rams because I hate Burrow, but then they had Tee, so I went with them. I go for whoever has contributing former Clemson players at the time. About it. Was a Bears fan in the 80's when they won the Super Bowl with the Fridge, because they had the Fridge. Was a Bulls fan in the 80's because they had Horace Grant. But overall not a fan pf pro sports in general. Players come and go, coaches come and go, teams move cities, not enough loyalty or honor in the game at that level.

Because I'm a big boy and people, famous or not, expressing themselves peacefully for whatever reason doesn't bother me.

I watched the halftime show...

And didn't even register that he was taking a knee.

Also, as a 41 year old white male living in suburbia, i've never felt more targeted by ads and a halftime show.

I thought he was doing that to get out of the way

for Dre on the piano. Didn't see it as kneeling for a cause either.

maybe he was tired. Eminem is getting pretty old, not as energetic as he once was, like all of us.

What does taking a knee in the middle of a rap song mean again? I don't even remember.

I knew she was tired. I was tired watching it.

They don't move around the stage like they use to. Now they stay in one spot.

Also was worried about $1.75 hanging upside down. He's got too many bullet holes to be doing that.

I never cared about anyone taking a knee in the first place. I generally don't care what the people in the sports world due outside of the game being played, unless it is domestic violence. That said, that American skier competing for China bothered me. That sucked.

I have also changed my tone on the kneeling stuff

Feb 14, 2022, 8:55 AM

I simply don't care about many things anymore. Outside of COVID, my interest in politics (shame that its political, still) is zero. Having a kid really softened me and changed my priorities.

That is what happened to me. I just aint got the time and/or energy to give a flying shit about someone kneeling at a football game or crap like that. Maybe that is why old people are so into this stuff, they have time to kill so they watch the news to determine what to get mad about. Their political alliances are determined by which news source they watch.

Especially of any form of art. I wish Colin hadn’t taken a knee, and I really wish he wouldn’t have been rewarded for doing so. I think it sends the wrong message to young people. Eminem doing it during one of his songs, I care less about it… I do think it’s kind of pathetic that artists are now shilling for tyrannical political movements. Artists should be standing up to the man, and right now “the man” is the Democratic Party. As far as Dre, no problem at all if he had left in the anti-cop stuff… it was in the original song.
