    PS I'm handicapped I speak of language and let's see something about a of a to B of an American one hdvd want to say something about it that what's going on with this is that what happened all this week and months and years everyone know that to be responsibility is always to beat moving forward to the future

  2. We all know this dude Kneeling says the “N” word when he’s driving in his car alone. The kneeling is what I guess is that white guilt stupid people talk about.

  3. Protest for what you believe in. Forget about what everyone else says. People will always run their mouths and tell you that you are wrong. Whatever! Ignore them they are not worth the air. Let them say what they want. You know what’s right in your heart. That’s all that matters. Keep kneeling until you don’t have to.

  4. Please keep kneeling while the adults run the country. We will win again and your disrespectful kneeling will become a thing of the past…Just another meaningless protest..Most of these band wagon riding wanna Be's have barely had a parking ticket and come from strong suburban families with plenty of money…GTFOH! Think for yourself idiots!

  5. Im glad you knelt, the anthem stems from a military background.. you kneel there like you have done anything to earn that anthem while you play your little sports games. You should kneel you coward.

  6. Time, How dare you report that they are protesting the American Anthem!!?? Thanks for spreading confusion and divisiveness.That really helps no one at a time like this. With American organizations like you who needs Russians?

  7. Ohhh look, another beta Cuck trying to virtue signal 🙄 and people wonder why o won't watch sports anymore. If the players aren't trash, the advertisers are.

  8. A slap in the face for the country that gave you all the opportunity. Stop saying immigrants when you mean illegal immigrants. Your love for "your country" seems to be conditional. Apparently, you don't know what love is.

  9. If these athletes were to be consistent with their protests (instead of ONLY taking a knee in front of an audience) then I might believe what they stand for. Otherwise, this is a disrespectful stunt.

  10. Time and the loser –
