Thumbs down NYPD officers take a knee....

..... Seriously? This segregation of the races, and thinking there is systematic/institutionalized racism has to stop. This just irks me.

I mean, yes you have a right to protest, but as LE officers, should you not also be patriotic? Be neutral? What if it was a bunch of White NYPD officers who took a knee to support a "White power" type movement or individual protesting for more "White rights".

I think they are tools as much as I think Kaepernick is. All they are doing is drawing dividing lines in the sand and making the existing divide even wider than it already is. They aren't making anything better.

Shots fired, officer needs assistance. "Damn, call it out where is it, who needs help?"

Sorry Brother, I'm taking a knee.

We need to stop the insanity.

We all have freedom of speech, so go to work tomorrow and call some gay dude a faggot. See what your first amendment does for your employment.

Kaepernick can't find a job because he sucks. Besides, what coach wants to deal with that shit. As far as these LEO's, they can go be part of his posse. They don't need to be in law enforcement.

Ridiculous. Conduct unbecoming.

Wait, I'm confused. Let's analyze:

(1) Kaepernick, abandoned by black father, given up by young mother, raised by white couple.
(2) Amazingly talented, becomes star QB
(3) Kneeling for the national anthem in protest of "a country that oppresses black people...there are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder".
(4) Black cops also kneel in solidarity to Colon's act.

In summary, man abandoned by black baby daddy kneels in protest of cops in this country now get show of support by black cops.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....

I could write a dissertation on this.

Those black cops are in a prime position to change perception about cops...what do they do?...kneel.

Morons.

And now this.

"Items related to Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest and his other efforts to call attention to racial inequality and police brutality will be displayed as part of a Black Lives Matter collection at the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History, a museum curator told USA TODAY Sports Friday night."

I would still like someone to explain to me how there is racial inequality, being that over the last 16 years we have had two blacks been Secretary of State, two have been Attorney Generals, and we had a black POTUS for 8 years. The highest positions in this nation fielded by blacks.

Facts don't matter. Now it's all about the "feelz" of the useful idiots, and where the puppet masters want things to go.

^Man, some of those Memes are hilarious....sadly most of them are true and make good points. It is amazing how many people in America are either ignorant, naive, uneducated in history/facts, or just ole plain mentally unbalanced.

Ever watch the movie "Hurricane"?

There is plenty of institutional racism in America. I may not live it everyday but I understand that it exists, I understand that police misconduct exists, and our courts and prosecutors are part of the institution that allows it to happen.

I'm not denying it exists, however, how many examples are pointed out of the minorities that have had no run-ins w/LEO and are successfully living the "American" dream?

I'll bet you have never heard of the Jack & Jill foundation?
