I'm curious to see everyone's two cents, whether or not you are an American.

What's a "sports"? Some sort of ancient Lithuanian myth, like the legendary Undershab Railroad?

Almost everyone who is so offended by the athletes taking a knee aren't offended that they're "disrespecting the flag" or some shit, they're offended that people of color should be treated equally. If you are so dense as to actually be offended by all the faux-patriotism nonsense, you're too fucking dense to have opinions on the things they're protesting anyway and should kill yourself.

In Eastern European countries you would actually get molested for doing that during the national anthem or disrespecting the flag (whatever the reason)  - one of the things where Americans are way more liberal than parts of the old continent.

To be frankly honest, the people who complain about it tend to be hypocrites. Look at Trump, he says kneeling during the national anthem "disrespects the men and women who died for the country" which is coming from the man who:
        -Dodged the draft 3 times during Vietnam
        -Called John McCain, the senator from Arizona who was imprisoned for 5 years in the notorious Hanoi Hilton POW camp during Vietnam and refused to be freed unless his comrades were set free too, a loser
        -Publicly attacked the family of a Army lieutenant who died in Afghanistan who saved members of his platoon from a suicide bomber

Honestly, it's about nationalistic idiots who have the IQ of a watermelon and  how they don't understand why the athletes are protesting.


Bit hard when its flaunted infront of you as a  broken reward piece of ass you'll never get to shag with.

how many of these people who complain about disrespecting the flag are at home standing during the national anthem? probably like 1%, they need to quit and those black athletes need to be happy a bunch of white men allowed them to play a game where they can make millions of dollars by ruining their bodies for the rest of the life and possibly succumbing to CTE

"I want proof!"
"I have proof!"
"Whatever, I'm still right"

Dafuq man, don't ask for proof if you'll refuse it if it's not in your favor, logic fallacy for the bloody win.

The higher the intelligence of Add Health respondents in junior high and high school, the more liberal they grow up to be in their early adulthood.
The mean adolescent intelligence of young adults who identify themselves as '' very liberal '' is 106.42, while that of those who identify themselves as '' very conservative '' is 94.82. The differences in mean adolescent intelligence by adult political ideology is highly statistically significant

I think the nation state is only the preservation of power of the rich, with no benefit to the general population.
