More Athletes Protest

I noticed one coach didn’t mind at all:

You’re probably asking the wrong guy that question. I grew up in the 60s, where everybody was socially conscious. I believe in it. I would be a hypocrite if I stood up here and told you any differently but more than likely, some of those protests that Dr. King and some of the others took part in, non-violent protests, is the reason why I am standing here in front of you today.

So absolutely, no question about it. I don’t mind it.

I don’t think the NFL bosses have anything to contribute against athletes protesting. After a horrific season of players enacting violence against loved ones, it’s good to see players involved on the right side of controversy.

Keith Olbermann’s take:

Athletes, but Americans first.

Good for them all. Let the protests continue.

    So, in “a horrific season of players enacting violence against loved ones,” you find what those same players have to say compelling?
