They died so you could post negative comments about the government and say what you want about the President without fear that a secret police would be dragging you off to a gulag.  You sell those who died in the Second World War and all those who died in the service of our country short.

 

You are saying that those Blacks who served and died did so for nothing?  Especially a very good friend, who happened to be Black, died in Vietnam did so for nothing?

 

Do you think you would have had your Black president if not for their sacrifices?  And what does all that have to do with Nike?

Sounds like you are degrading their sacrifice?  Making their deaths political?  Typical for a liberal. 


Anyone who voted for and still supports Trump would be seen as degrading their sacrifice. Especially the black soldiers who gave their lives in hope of an equal America. Not one that complains when athletes protest the treatment of their black relatives and families.

In your first sentence above you use the phrase "YOUR BLACK MAN". Was it your intention to imply ownership?

 

 

 


You are the one emphasizing the phrase by using all capital letters, and the one who keeps posting about his skin color.  I'm emulating your posts.  In fact you have a history here of bringing up Blacks and capitalizing the word.  Is there a reason that you are race conscious and and can't accept that we are all human beings?

 

But you keep avoiding that he is of mixed race and raised by white parents.  Now you come across as trying to say that's a bad thing?  I believe you are just wanting to keep this argumentative...RIGHT?

 

How long are you going to keep this topic alive?  Find someone else to play with.

I realize it is not as satisfying but if you are going to get rid of your Nike's in protest, give them to a homeless shelter. Especially one with a lot of homeless vets.  Hmm. Maybe we can get a movement going to buy NEW Nike shoes for homeless vets? 


If you ever get a movement to by NEW Nikes, keep this old soldier in mind, I wouldn't be ashamed to wear them when working in our garden

They have as much right to do so as your Black Man exercising his. 

 

I do believe that you are hiding behind Kaepernick's skin color more than anything else.  

 

Even though he is part White and his adopted parents were White, who raised him along his white adopted siblings.

 

Reading about his life he had no problems in society, and actually is worth around $20 million. 

 

Where is the publicity about him working with those poor wretched souls? 



In your first sentence above you use the phrase "YOUR BLACK MAN". Was it your intention to imply ownership?

 

One only knows what you are implying by saying "PART WHITE, WHITE ADOPTIVE PARENTS, and WHITE SIBLINGS. Do you attribute his nurture by WHITES to be more positive than if he were nurtured in a BLACK FAMILY?

 

What is the purpose of specifically mentioning that "HE HAD NO PROBLEMS IN SOCIETY". You are aware that specifically pointing something out like that takes on the aura of being a "DOG WHISTLE" sort of like saying a BLACK MAN is "ARTICULATE"; like Desantis did in Florida.

 

Since his demonstrations have to do with BLACK ISSUES, you, by association, have called BLACK PEOPLE "wretched poor souls".

 

Calling Black People "wretched poor souls" is beyond the pale. It is right in line with TRUMP'S "What Have You Got To Lose?".

 

You say I am hiding behind Kaepernick's skin color.... but, it is you, my friend, that can talk about NOTHING BUT SKIN COLOR throughout your post.

And you are criticizing Americans excercising their First Amendment Rights to burn NIKE shoes?  So what?  They have as much right to do so as your Black Man exercising his.  I do believe that you are hiding behind Kaepernick's skin color more than anything else.   Even though he is part White and his adopted parents were White, who raised him along his white adopted siblings.

 

Reading about his life he had no problems in society, and actually is worth around $20 million.  Why isn't he donating more than a few million to help those he refuses to stand for?  Where is the publicity about him working with those poor wretched souls? 

 

He comes across to me as a pure hypocrite and publicity hound.

 

Again, remember those burning their NIKEs are excercising their first amendment rights you want to suppress.

 

Have a good evening.
