Protests in Sports

I threw on my Giants jacket that I got last year and thought nothing of it. I got to work today and one of the crew members on another show started saying to me, “That’s right, where your jacket, don’t be afraid to show you are going to watch the NFL.” Honestly, I don’t really care about the NFL. I find football almost as boring as soccer. If it’s on and I’m flipping through the channels I might hit it on for a second, but I’m not frothing at the mouth to watch these games. But, this whole convo made me think about the protests during the national anthem.

I don’t care. Not that I don’t care about the reason behind it. But I don’t care what athletes or celebrities think about politics on a bigger level. On a personal level it’s fine and when I can have discussions one on one it’s different thing. Folks want to protest before a game, go ahead. You want to protest at an award show go ahead. Hell, if you want to protest in the streets in a march, go ahead and do that. Just make sure that march doesn’t cause any ambulances/fire trucks/police to not get to an emergency and save lives. Folks want to protest the protesters do that to. It’s everyone’s right to do so.
