So why is Drew Brees not receiving the same RESPECT for his opinion that is demanded by others for theirs?

Blacks will probably do Brees like they did to Chris Weinke. The word I kept hearing is that he offended Blacks somehow, and they refused to block for him and made him look bad while running for his life. I expect the same for Drew Brees. Chris Weinke was a Heisman winner, yet could not win at Carolina due to the Blacks not blocking for him. I'm pretty sure every White QB knows this will happen to them if they don't cower down to the Black agenda.


maybe Weinke just wasn't any good?***

Once again why can't we all just be referred to as people? This is why racism will never die because the media and everyone else in society have to keep grouping people by race instead of grouping everyone as people.

I would prefer to call them Africans myself. That is the one name that actually makes sense to me, and if I were Black, that's what I would want to be called. There's nothing wrong with being proud of your heritage. Japanese, Chinese, Russian, German, Italian, etc all seem to proudly claim their heritage. If they want to be called American, that's fine too, but no need to distinguish as African American as that attempts to make them sound like supremacists IMO.

And "the Blacks" were the only OLinemen that allowed Weinke to get sacked so easily as they were pathetic at protecting their QB. They did much better once Weinke left.

Just calling it like I see it. You can call it your way and I won't agree with you either.

Yet you choose to ignore the fact that he doubled down on his stance about “disrespecting” the National Anthem and the flag when when I’m fact, it’s NOT about the flag or the National Anthem kneeling is NOT disrespecting it. He was insensitive and he showed what was more important to him. It’s pure ignorance. He either lives under a rock or has the willingness to be ignorant. It’s clear that he lacks the knowledge or awareness in what’s been going on and the reason behind the kneeling....

was kneeling during the anthem and facing the flag because the flag didn't stand for what he thought America was, or what the flag stood for wasn't America. So I thought it was initially about what the flag meant

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."

Ok, read it. Saw this:

"BOYER: You know, this was two years ago, 2016 during the preseason. And he, you know, had sat on the bench. And I think it was actually his third time he'd sat on the bench. But it was the first time it had received national attention. And, you know, he got questioned about it, and he said, well, I'm not going to stand for the flag of a country that oppresses black people and people of color. And then he talked about, you know, social injustices and police brutality and why he thought, you know, he shouldn't be standing for the anthem."

That's specifically addressing the flag, right?

BOYER: “I thought - at that time I said, look, I think your point has definitely been made that everyone's listening. Like, let's make a plan of attack now. And, you know, let's work on action for it. But he said, you know, what I've committed to this, and - I'm not going to do it until I start to see these changes I want to see. And, you know, I respected that decision and opinion. And I thought kneeling - personally, so I don't speak for everybody, I don't speak for every veteran. I've been told that numerous times by many people. But I thought kneeling was more respectful, and I will say that being alongside his teammates was the biggest thing for me.”

Yea so is that....

I don't understand. Your original comment was that it's not about the flag or the anthem. I get kneeling is more respectful, and I get that the former GB met and talked with him about it. That wasn't my original question. It was the question about directing it to the flag, which he did. He chose to make that the symbol where he placed his disagreement with his view of America, which contrasts and contradicted many people, particularly football fans. I'm not saying it's not effective, or it wasn't as respectful as it could be. Even Boyer doesn't agree with it, but understands what Kap's right are. But to say "it's not about the flag" I don't think is correct. It is about the flag. Kap believes what that flag stands for is a country he doesn't believe in/agree with, so he doesn't stand for it.

BOYER: Well, I've kind of felt like that since the beginning of this whole thing - is that I don't necessarily agree with him, but what I've fought for, what we all fought for - whether we like it or not, we can say we don't like it all day - but we took an oath to defend the Constitution. And I fought to defend our rights, which obviously include the first amendment, you know, which is free speech. And I don't have to agree with or even like what people do sometimes. But I have defended the right of someone to stand right in front of my face and burn an American flag, you know, and call me a baby killer or call me whatever they want. I still fought for that.

And it's what makes it very difficult, and it can be hurtful because it's just - you can say a protest or a campaign or you can say anything is about a specific idea. You can say, like, look. It's not about this. It's about this. I'm not - I don't hate America. I'm not disrespecting the flag. This is not about veterans. This is about people of color and the criminal justice system and all that. But you also don't get to choose how people perceive things. And that's what makes this even more difficult and just tougher for just a lot of people - I'm not going to say just people in camouflage, but all of us as Americans.

The whole point is that Dabo and Drew disagree with kneeling during the Natiional Anthem. They are roundabout being painted as racist for this belief. Here’s how I’m going to answer that question. No they are not racist. And they are not ignorant nor insensitive. Your bloviating around the subject just like the media. Cut to the chase and answer the question.

Kap is most definitely a man to be admired. When he was sporting a Fidel T shirt and wearing socks depicting cops as pigs, I thought how brilliant of a way to encourage thoughtful dialog than to essentially denigrate all cops and extol the virtues of Castro who was such a great champion of free speech.

Kap has every right to kneel.I support his right to do so for any reason, to promote Castro, to insult cops. However, I have every right to find his kneeling during the anthem annoying and offensive. While I'm not a Green Beret, I am a veteran and strongly suspect the vast majority of veterans while irritated by kneeling during the national anthem, support Kap's right to kneel and as the saying goes,"All gave some, some gave it all" to allow Kap to kneel.

I assure you I am not ignorant, but I am not accepting of the notion that if one doesn't agree in lockstep with every woke narrative that one is either ignorant, evil or both.

I find conversations end after this fact is presented. It's at this point, those that oppose kneeling have realized they've duped by friends or media have told them: KAP disrespected the flag.

The action to mindfully make a change from sitting (no respect) to kneeling to show respect for the fallen and current military, from the suggestion of a white man, who is a Green Beret simply cannot be denied or ignored any further.

I don’t know I’m also a veteran and I am very squarely in the “kneeling during the anthem is disrespectful” camp. Is it marginally better that sitting? Perhaps but that doesn’t make it a something I can condone. In the end, my opinion is no more valid then the green beret, you, or anyone else. People are going to do what they are going to do though.

Every single person that lives in the United States of America has the choice to choose to stand and respect the Flag that represents our country that hundreds of thousands of men and women has fought and died for so to keep the freedom of the right to choose. But when our Flag is raised, and our National anthem is being played, to show your Patriotism and respect for our country, and for what our Flag and our Anthem stands for, you stand in silence, salute, or place your right hand over your heart to show that you are an American who loves this country, and you are respectful of the men and women who was and still are willing to give their life for the freedom that all Americans have and share in our country.

The freedoms offered when living in the United States of America wasn't free, many honorable Americans gave their lives to ensure that America remained a free country, and if you refuse to show the proper respect for the Flag and National Anthem they died under, you will be shunned by the majority of Americans and rightfully so. If that hurts the feelings of those that refuse to give proper respect for the American Flag and the National Anthem that that thousands have died for, please do us all a favor, and choose to move out of our country bc we don't want you here, and you're not deserving of a thing in the United States of America the Beautiful, the best country in the world that may not be perfect, but it is the best country in the world that we live in!!!!

Or only from your eyes ...I'm with Brees on his stance on kneeling for the anthem and I get what Cap meant by doing it.

But what Brees is saying is that the national anthem is off limits to protesting or utilizing an agenda. That's reserved for honoring our country and those who made ultimate sacrifices for everyone, regardless of background. That is what he saying.

You can disagree and it's fine. What needs to stop is attacking bc they don't believe like you do. We all need reminders of this from time to time but Brees has every right to stand his ground.

It's a #### joke to see people tearing him down over that. As is the King's announcer.

I think most of this protest is very misguided in it's targets for racism? Do any of these people really understand what racism is? And ironically enough, racism is being displayed by the groups that are pointing the fingers in the other direction.

When the world is talking, this very moment, about police brutality and social injustices, and someone makes a remark dismissing another persons way of protest....well, what was the point? It was very ill timed, tone deaf and ignorant. What he said, was hurtful and shows he's either a) uneducated on the issues at hand, miss-informed, or close minded.

Maybe someone in Drew Brees's corner should have told him that Kap, at the advice of a Green Beret Nate Boyer mindfully and consciously chose to stop sitting in his protest, and kneel. Doing such would still show honor to the military and those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom (which includes the ability to protest) but also protest in his small way to bring attention to police brutality and social injustices.

I wish all media would have covered this more (Nate Boyer). But in this time period, every story needs to be left vs right, blue vs red,...and this story doesn't pit one side against the other so there is no value. Shameful! F'n shameful.

Thankfully he is so ignorant and closed minded. I never watch the NFL, but he is now my favorite QB and would be the only team I would watch. It feels great to be so ignorant and closed minded, and an AMERICAN that loves and respects his country.

Edit after he caved under pressure:
I can no longer respect Brees and wanted to make that clear. He was correct and had every right to speak his stance on that kneeling crap. Cowering to Black pressure shows that he is simply afraid that Blacks won't block for him and he'll look terrible as a QB.

We should only hear statements like this from people that love AMERICA and cannot be pressured by Black Supremacy or Black Privilege.

Dabo said that the protest was a distraction to the team and that’s why he didn’t agree with it. It was a distraction.

The simple fact is that no matter what the cause, some people won’t appreciate a protest during the anthem. No matter what the cause some people see the kneeling as disrespecting the country/flag. Had he chosen a different approach things might have gone differently. Kap’s only unemployed because teams don’t want the distraction...has nothing to do with agreeing or disagreeing with him.

If I remember correctly, the part of Dabo's comments that got him heat were saying that things were much better than they used to be, and mentioned that Clemson had a black quarterback as an example. That part probably wouldn't have been so bad, and it could be argued that he was making a fair point about progress. Then he went on to say that anyone not happy could find another country to live in. I can't remember his exact words, but it was something along those lines, and that's what I remember him getting a hard time about.

AGAIN....it is NOT disrespecting to kneel during the National Anthem. What part of that do you not understand???

So by you choosing to ignore those facts, that’s a pure sign of willful ignorance on your part. Do your research before blabbering about what’s disrespectful because you’re wrong. And Drew Brees’ recent reply to Trump is just a slap to your face. If you still don’t get it and choose to be absent minded and stubborn, you’re most definitely part of the problem.

I don’t think LeBron is racist. He does seem kinda’ obsessed with race though. Not saying that’s bad, particularly since he has such a big microphone and uses it to push for needed change, but that may explain why some think he’s racist.

IMO, of course.


This is just a hunch...

Lebron is product of his environment.

I listened to a podcast that spent a year or two in Cleveland at the Courthouse. You talk about corruption. Wow.

It's a heck a good listen. Some jaw dropping stories.

Look up his criticism of Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morley who was supportive of the people of Hong Kong. The Communists were offended by this as well as “King” James because the Communists support the NBA and “King” James. He’s made Millions off the Chinese.

I'm not a fan of James, but dramatic much? We've had people like Hitler exist in this world, had groups like the KKK, people hung and killed over racism, and you honestly think Lebron James is one of the biggest racist ever? I'd love to hear some examples of his racism.

Because his opinion is different from there’s so that makes him “racist” in there eyes. It’s really sad people can’t disagree now a days. If you do disagree then your against “them” and a racist. Drew’s opinions and feels matter just as much as everyone else’s.

I didn’t say anyone on here thinks he’s a racist. I think the players and people that are ganging up on him, calling him ignorant to the cause, and say sometimes he needs to shut the f... up think his views are racist.

My grandfathers serviced in the military and I currently serve in the military and have for the last 12 years. I’m proud to stand when I hear our National Anthem play. Anyone who doesn’t wish to stand, be quite, salute, or anything like that is more than welcome to because WE are Americans. It is there right to do whatever they feel like even if I don’t agree with it.

Now as for the police brutality. I am all for police being held more accountable and think they’ve had way to much power for way too long. #### maybe they need to have some sort of Geneva Convention type rules that will make punishment for them more stiff and hopefully prevent these senseless deaths. You can’t just protest when things are going wrong though. If the cause really matters to you I think you should have issues with it all the time and try to make a difference every day. Just because someone’s opinion is different from mine doesn’t mean I hate them or thing any less of them. Just means I think and see things differently.

I hate that he gave into the pressure and apologized. He’s a southern born, God fearing republican who believes in his country. Nothing to be ashamed of. Anybody that criticizes that has the real problem. These people bashing him are absolute clowns.

I honestly like Drew Brees a lot. He was the QB for San Diego when I lived there and did a lot for the community and does in New Orleans too.

I hate this cancel culture more than anything in the world. One insensitive comment and comes a tide of overly virtuous, judgemental ###### ready to pounce. I mean who hasn't ever said something stupid? I probably make a daily habit out of it as I am sure many of you will point out.

That being said, yes, it was insensitive. That's just my opinion though.

Also, I do recall Laura Ingraham on Fox News saying Lebron should "just dribble" and keep his thoughts to himself and Drew Brees had "every right to voice his opinion".

Imagine being a black man and hearing this? Can you?

The timing of Drew Brees's remarks about kneeling during the anthem could definitely have been better. However, this is his opinion. It would appear that this opinion is shared by the vast majority of Americans of all races. I've been to sporting events all over this country.From what I've witnessed, there are extremely few people of any color taking a knee.

For those on this forum who think Brees is ignorant and insensitive for expressing his opinion, do you also think anyone sharing that opinion is ignorant and insensitive? Is your problem with Brees that he expressed his opinion at this time or that he should never have expressed his opinion? Do you feel that Brees and most of Americans are ignorant, closed minded, and insensitive?

If Brees and others like myself stand still with our hand over our heart or saluting, do you feel we are being ignorant and disrespectful if there are others choosing to kneel and we don't participate?

If you are so critical of Brees, have you been kneeling yourself? If not, shouldn't you plan on doing so in the future? To not do so seems inconsistent.

I don't hate Kap. I support his right to protest. Hopefully he will be given another chance to play in the NFL. Miami would be an excellent place for him to land. Would he choose to parade about town in his Fidel T shirt? Now THAT would really be ignorant.

Seriously, for those of you who are attacking Brees for his opinion you need to be courageous enough to follow Kap's example. If your problem is that Bree's should have held back on his opinion during this extremely volatile time, then I respect your opinion while not necessarily agreeing with it. If you are saying that Brees and those of us who do not support kneeling should NEVER express our opinion, then that is sad to me that only your opinion matters to you. Perhaps you're not as open minded as you think?

I know exactly where you are coming from, I really do. My grandfather fought in WW2 and I have many many other family members (including my father) who are currently in or have been in military service.

Being from this type of background, I would never kneel during our national anthem or disrespect the flag that a lot of my family put their lives on the line to protect. Having said that, I don't have a problem with people who do it either.

Like I said, I like Drew Brees. I guess I have a problem with the timing of his comments not so much his opinion. I do agree with you that we ALL need to be more tolerant of each other's opinions. This includes overly virtuous liberals (been guilty myself) who also lack tolerance.

I remember American Legion baseball teams being coached about how to line up and stand for the anthem. Don’t move, don’t shift your feet, don’t so much as cough!! Our coaches back then were of the WW2 generation. I saw how much they loved America and how much that flag meant to them. They instilled that respect in us and I am forever grateful to them.
