Guess social injustice only matters when it's your own injustice.
The social injustice here was caused by the slow response to the situation by our current administration. And a bow to pressure by the media caused that response. Nine days...unbelievable!!!!

Billionaire status quo such as Mr. Benson. This starts with all of us and will not happen over night.

Are you still on the ground there?

I think your angst should be posted on the PR thread in the PDB. You're seeing it first hand.

One branch of the military has answered. Well done Lt. Gen Silveria. I'm a vet of 12 years of Air Force active service. I respect the flag and national anthem and all they both stand for. And I'm a black man from Mississippi. However, if kneeling sheds light on an issue that is brewing to the point of boiling over in this country, then so be it. I don't give a damn if the social injustice is targeting people of color, white people for injustice towards others if the targeting is done illegally, those of a different sexual preference, religious preference, etc., injustice is injustice. Shame on anyone who tries to use the idea of kneeling to bring attention to injustice as a sign of disrespect for our flag or anthem to avert attention to an issue that secretly they support. Trump started this disrespect crap intentionally as a diversion tactic to contentually divide the nation. He as much as said it to members of a dinner party this weekend, saying he was enjoying the problems he was causing.

Sure.

There's also plenty of room to be cynical about various motives in seeking resolutions, but all of this is ultimately pointless if there aren't people trying to move the sides closer together. Whoever wrote it, I can appreciate the overall sentiment being expressed. It reads like a step in the right directions, at least.

If the Saints do this, then thats the entire thing Kaep was kneeling for. He wanted to bring attention to the social injustice too many people face every single day, where it seems like the flag doesnt really stand for them.

The entire point was to build a country he could be proud standing for - a country that stands for everyone.

Tom Benson is a [mod edit - ] and hates having a team in Louisiana. He would rather have the saints in Texas. Never forget. He also stays here because louisiana gives him tons of money and incentive

Politics and religion are the lowest form of conversation and will be sure to tick off someone in the crowd. I leave the room if they are broached.

Benson has been out of it for years, I dont think Benson would "support" this movement.
If he still had it, he would have brought in a DC.
