Would you not wish that this was a mistake, or that such evil was perpetrated by a deranged judge, who escaped from the Middle Ages?. Much more, wouldn’t you be outraged at the injustice that many of us refuse to see perched on benches, pretending respectability as judges all across America. But in addition to all my troubles, why do I see this happening, so far exclusively, to Black women and Latinas?

Sarah, why and from where we heard that adapted quote before? Seems so familiar.
Oh, yes, it was a bit like this: peace will come when the Arabs love their children more than they hate us (Israel).
You do realise, I assume, that the context in which you paraphrased what had been said and now used, is jarring and out of place. If you didn’t know, you should have, because you represent the White House.
If you did know and thought it apt, then America is deeper in political hell than I thought.
We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”
― Prime Minister of Israel, Golda Meir, (1896-1978)

True today as it’s always been.
I do understand that the players have to make a living and that they have contracts to honour. I just wonder, sometimes about the attorneys who represent them at the signing of these contracts and whether they know what rights given away?
But, let’s look at the fans. The fans who are enthralled with this or that player or team; the hundreds of thousands of people who make a living off the earnings of the athletes and the benefits to cities and the nation though tax revenues and so much more. All because of the players -not the owners.
I guess fans associate with the athlete, the image, not the man. Nope! Never with the Black human form.
Now, for those co-opted, who are wilfully confused; those who pretend not to have to decide: it’s about police brutality, police impunity to murder Black people in America and a criminal justice industry focused on our destruction through stultification.
If there is any doubt in your heart, two nights ago Trump, who has been on a dehumanising rant, finally spoke what’s in his malevolent, tiny, undeveloped mind. He said that if they won’t stand proudly for the national anthem, then they must get ouof the America. It can’t get clearer than that.
Well, Donald, piss on yourself, because we aren’t going anywhere. Even if Ben Carson, Mia Love, Kanye and others say pretty please.
We are here! We are aware! We are resolute!
