Yes I would take my child out of that class. I have said before that the BLM organization is a horrible organization that is run by terrible people. I think they are racist and anti-American. They don’t believe in the nuclear family and that tells me all I need to know about them. I would take my kid out of a class that glamorized the kkk and White supremacy as well. I don’t like that the LHN kept throwing that crappy organization in my face, but it is run by ESPN so I expect it. I have also said I believe in the sentiment of Black Lives Matter by not the organization. I can distinguish between the two. Can you, or do you believe we can’t have one without the other?

Well if you want to go back in history, the majority of slaves sold to the European slave traders were sold by fellow Africans. The tribes would fight each other and the victors would sell the losers.

Right on...while I'm a bigger college football fan than NFL, I definitely watch the Cowboys.  Don't really follow any other NFL teams but will watch players I like.  I'm more of an NBA fan than college basketball tho...

I used to watch Moons run n shoot offense as well.  Remember the Jerry Glanville team lol.  I was a huge Cowboys fan then it just died over the years.  I will always watch our horns til the day I die though

Quick question: what's makes people feel they have to boycott the NFL/NBA etc.?  I personally can't think of anything that would make me not watch a sport I love.  But if you're boycotting the NFL/NBA now, why?  I'll hang up and listen...

I think I have just gotten very tired of the constant addition of politics into sports. Most people have enough crap to deal with in their everyday life. For me, I would tune out the world for a couple of hours and live and die with my teams. Now we are constantly barraged with political messages and activism. Right or wrong, I wasn't a big fan of the month-long wearing pink for breast cancer. Yes, I support breast cancer awareness, but the whole awareness for this, awareness for that got a bit old. But, then again I am wishy-washy, because I did like the Cowboy's Thanksgiving Salvation Army promotion...

I read some stuff on Josh Moore and I can tell you i am really happy for the young man. He got in trouble and could have just quit, but he was sorry and kept his head up. He kept working and stayed engaged in the program. He did his suspension and came back ready to play. We have seen enough to tell that he’s a really good player. He’s a good young man too. What I like is that he didn’t try to lie or blame anyone else. He said he got what he deserved. I am definitely a Josh Moore fan. He’s got a bright future. 🤘🤘🐂🐂

Because we regularly see them on police blotters, most often for rape or sexual assault or domestic violence. And then they suddenly want to lecture their consumer base. If you don't see the ill-fated irony there, there's more....

It is BRAIN-DEAD marketing strategy to alienate your consumer base in the first place. But this is an ongoing operation. While they may feel proud and justified about calling America all these names and being critical of every little thing – the fact remains, nowhere else in this world can they have the opportunity to earn millions and millions of dollars playing a silly game. A race that makes up 15% of America's population is represented to the tune of 70% in the NFL. Where in God's name is the oppression?

Meanwhile, teachers, police, firemen, etc., have much more challenging jobs that do the public a service – and they're paid nothing by comparison to the NFL. 

They cry about division, but insist on having two different anthems played at games now.

They began this charade, and continue it, by kneeling (disrespecting) a flag that provides a blanket of freedom for them. It is highly, highly insulting, particularly for those who have loved ones who gave their lives for that flag.

So in my opinion, it is highly irresponsible for today's players to literally flush the league down the toilet after so many trailblazers before them had worked so hard for the pedestal these clowns sit on. They are literally destroying a profession so it won't be there for the future would-be players of the NFL. It will be greatly diminished and that's a tragedy.

You're watching the death of the NFL in slow motion. 

If anyone in this country needed four years of college, it was Lebron James. Thanks to him and others like him, slave labor is alive and well in China, making the communist wallets fat thanks to the sweat shop labor. But he will lecture us all about how we're all racists and live in a racist country.

If anything, I would vote over and over again for the NBA to move to China. I was once a huge fan. Today, F no.

Let me first say, I am conservative, and I support and love everyone no matter their race, religion, etc. Human life is precious and we are only on this planet for a fleeing minute. I do not however support Marxism or socialism, and if Communist China is in any way financing BLM, well that says it all right there. China wants to see our country destroyed and if this is true, we should all be very worried.

I watch sports to get away from the trials and tribulations of life. It is my escape. I read and watch enough news to know or at least form an opinion of what is wrong in this country. I used to be a huge Mavs fan but somewhere along the line I became disenchanted with the way the game was played (no defense). I quit watching long before the civil unrest. The NFL is an easy explanation. With all the years of Cowboy mediocrity I slowly quit watching, and I have no desire to watch another team. The political stuff sealed the deal.

Thank God for DVR's or I would probably have some difficulty with college broadcasts. I never watch a game "live". I watch at a 30 minute time lag to skip through commercials and other stuff.

I know I have said this before but I dont like the BLM lecturing in sports or in the schools preK through HS.  I think its good to teach about racial equality but when they are teaching kids that America is not exceptional that bothers me.  No indoctrination of Marxist ideology in public schools that receive tax dollars.

I would like to give props to @DBut82.  I dont watch the NBA but all I ever heard about LeBron was his BLM shirts and boycotts.  My opinion of him wasnt good.  DB told me about something I think everyone here can get behind.  I know I do.  Education is key to closing the wealth gap.  Just thought I would share this.  Gotta give him props for this even though I dont agree with the boycotts

LeBron James opens school for at-risk kids in Ohio. James declared the I Promise School the most meaningful accomplishment of his career. James declared the I Promise School the most meaningful accomplishment of his career.

THIS☝️

I quit watching pro football years ago when Bud Adams sold the Houston Oilers team to Tennessee. Was just getting interested in the Texans when this taking a knee shtf. I, too, see it as disrespectful of our flag and our country. 

I've always preferred the lights out play of college football to the showboating of the pros.

Never was much of a basketball fan.

Thanks for sharing this. I still don't like Lebron. I'm sick of his schtick.

But what you shared just made me look at him in a different way. I've always thought those who find success should return to their home to help others less fortunate. Thats exactly what he did. Kudos to Lebron James.

I quit quit watching pro sports years ago because I got tired of people making millions bitching about being poor (see Ken Norton Jr). 

Be that said, for modern times @Sirhornsalot nails it in his post. 

As far as for "Chairman James" (he has no problem supporting China, who I believe is our worst enemy), even sh*t can have a good purpose (fertilizer) but it's still sh*t.

I do agree with this.  Anyone remember the NBA fiasco over the pro democracy Hong Kong protestors?  Apologizing for pro democracy protestors.  Hows that for the left demanding we take more of a leadership role?  The NBA, Nike, and Disney are sold out to China.  China's communist party and their grotesque human rights violations, not only against Chinese people but also Muslims, should not be preaching to the USA.  But of course the NBA and Nike bowed down to the CCP.  Rockets GM Moreys tweeted  "Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong." of which he later had to apologize for and NBA as well.  Even Lebron commented on it afterwards

Quote

“I think when we all sit back and learn from the situation that happened, understand that what you could tweet or could say (could affect people),” James said. “We all talk about this freedom of speech. Yes, we all do have freedom of speech, but at times there are ramifications for the negative that can happen when you’re not thinking about others, and you’re only thinking about yourself.

“I don’t want to get into a word or sentence feud with Daryl Morey, but I believe he wasn’t educated on the situation at hand, and he spoke, and so many people could have been harmed, not only financially, but physically. Emotionally. Spiritually. So just be careful what we tweet and what we say, and what we do. Even though yes, we do have freedom of speech, but there can be a lot of negative that comes with that too.”

Sounds like an excuse to not offend the CCP.

Do the same standards apply to the small business looted and burned or the people killed and beaten?

I didn't know whether to post this in this or the Coronavirus thread. Everything seems to be political nowadays so I chose this one. Good people are being pushed into a corner. Expect to see more of this as this plandemic continues.

Hell yeah.  Good people tired of this BS
