    Black NFL players sitting during the national anthem. Why?

    Because of past slavery?

    Because they feel "less than" now?

    Their million dollar contracts should be evidence that their race is not an issue for them today, and that slavery is a time long ago.

    They are idiots. And do an injustice to black people.

    There should be no thumbs down.

    Black people have blamed slavery on all of their current problems, and ignore their own faults today, which are many and vast.

    Their culture is not good.

    Suzi, how do you know Chaney is white?

    Suppose Chaney is mixed race, at what point would he be white, black or grey?

    Again, "said the white guy."

    If you were black, or even if you weren't still enjoying your white privilege, despite being 140+ years post-slavery in the US, you might have a point, but you're not, and so you don't.

    Do you even have half a clue what it must feel like to be pulled over by a white cop and wondering if you'll live through the encounter?

    Do you understand the racism that still exists in some communities in this country that means if you appear brown and hispanic, that you'll be arrested and held for hours without evidence and without even being charged while you pray that family members can find proof of your citizenship before they turn you over to ICE?

    If you don't or can't, you have no business telling these people how to react to the discrimation they experience on a daily basis.

    I don't need to be white.

    Any observer can see that black people hang on to slavery for a reason.

    Anything to deflect from the point, eh?

    And if he WAS 'mixed race' he obviously wouldn't be making such an inane point in the first place, having experienced the discrimination first-hand.

    Even a black observer, or, in fact, ANY non-white observer?

    Yes, to have this kind of skewed opinion requires you to be white, since this is nothing but white privilege talking.

    No.

    Black people celebrate a pity party for themselves every day.

    They trade their current dignity for slavery.

    As long as black people continue to blame slavery, they will place themselves as 'lesser people'.

    The sole content of your post was:

    "Said the white guy."

    One can only assume that was your point. As it is your point I was interested in how you classify a person's race. By their opinion on a person standing/not standing for a patriotic song?

    Black people must have a certain viewpoint and if they don't suzi will reclassify them as white?
    White people must hold a certain view point or suzi will reclassify them ...?????

    You're the one classifying people by race, surely you can define your system.

    This is just white privilege saying, hey I have it good, no one's discriminating against me, so what in the hell are those black people bitching about?

    Zero empathy.
