This is obviously not my meme. I took it from another source (in this case, Facebook) and wanted to share it here.
Man, the lengths these guys go to just to improve the "wow" factor. I'm a firm believer that a lot of the ills of our society started with the 24-hour news cycle. Instead of getting solid reporting once or twice a day, we now have a non-ending stream of "latest" and "breaking news" reports that are in competition with each other for alarmism.

It is the right of others to say what they think I do/say means. However, it is not their right to supplant what I actually meant with what they think. Their opinion is their opinion, to which they are entitled. However, that doesn't change the reality of my motivation.

Of course violence of any type is deplorable. You could pick "white" on "white" killings, serial killings, or a whole host of others. But what is the point of protesting those? Seriously, answer that question in your head. Because, in the end, it's a pointless endeavor. No one in authority is instigating, endorsing, or otherwise perpetuating those evils. And in that critical difference lies the point of his actions. Again, many of the cited situations are justified on the part of the officer shooting. However, there are several instances where someone loses their life in an unjustified manner, and it we would be morally remiss to treat that as inconsequential. Is there plenty of crime in this world? Yes, there is. Does it matter when someone loses their life when they don't deserve to? Of course. The distinction he is making is when it happens by the hand of those who swore to serve and protect, then that something needs to be noticed.

Nope, don't buy it. He chose kneeling as a sign of respect. Also, unless you're a dictator, one person doesn't have the power to change the meaning of something for an entire country. That's a ludicrous notion in and of itself. I'm not saying you have to like or agree with Kaepernick. Personally, I think many of his examples of supposed racial prejudice in our legal enforcement system is]]are blatantly incorrect (although I'd also admit that occasionally the inexcusable does happen). Also, he's clearly not a very good QB (which I thought before he even started kneeling), so it makes sense to me that he's no longer in the NFL. Finally, I hate it when corporations get political, so the Nike thing irks me. But even so, THIS is a dumb thing to roast the man over, because he went out of his way to choose something that did respect the flag. Let's crucify people of crimes they're actually guilty of, shall we? Or is that too reasonable of a request?
