United We Kneel

The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted. Psalm 12:8

On Sunday, we saw Vice President Pence walked out of the Indianapolis football game because several football players from the opposing team had kneeled during the national anthem.

Then up steps the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones declaring that if anyone on his team disrespect the flag they will not play.

Can we say hypocrites!

It is evident that President Trump has put the wrong messaging on why these football players are kneeling. And the truth of the matter is it isn’t about the American flag, our military or the National Anthem.

These men are kneeling to highlight those  police officers throughout America who have neither remorse nor concern about the killing of black men, women and children. And in many instances when the police officers are guilty of killing black people, they get off with a slap on the wrist and a “good job Charlie” salute or at times, a promotion.

What is overlooked by some white Americans is that the truth about black folks in America is most oftentimes written and spoken with untruths. American history books bear evidence of this fact.

A change of wording, dates and descriptions of black history has been so distorted that it had to be recovered to bring light on the truth.

It never ceases to amaze me that these so-called died in the wool patriots are not veterans nor have they served one day in the military for this country. They like to boast about America. They like to wear army fatigue and wave the American flag. But the majority of these patriots don’t realize that their freedom to discriminate and harass is because of some of those minorities they refuse to live or work among.

Now, we have Mike Pence who is no more than a shadow puppet of Trump showing his disrespect for the right of American football players to kneel and protest in silence. They haven’t gone out and burnt any American flags or refuse to do their jobs. No! They are only doing what this administration refuses to accept.

Their right to be 100% American citizens with all rights and privileges afforded to them as human-beings and wage earners.

The only way this nation will ever heal is to first face its ugly past and present.

United we kneel. Kneel for equality!

If you haven’t seen this video I included in this post circulating online, I suggest that you please take the time to listen to this rational and honest commentary from an American, who understands that kneeling isn’t the problem…Trump and his followers.
