I take issue with the black football player who wouldn’t stand during the playing of the National Anthem and his so-called injustice. We have had a black president, a black attorney general, 90 percent of basketball players are black, 80 percent of football players are black, and nearly all of the TV commercials have black participants.
African-Americans constitute only about 15 percent of the U.S. population. More than 350,000 Union soldiers died and countless thousands lost limbs to remove his ancestry from bondage.
Many thousands more died in World War II to preserve the football player’s liberty.
I am thankful for being born in this country. If this football player is so unhappy in the United States, perhaps he would be happy in another country, so I bid him goodbye and good riddance.
Never miss a local story.
As for the statue issue, there was plenty of hate and malice displayed in tearing down the statue in North Carolina. The people who did it should be found and prosecuted. They acted like a bunch of lamebrain idiots.
