  1. republicans: “Stick to sports!”
    NFL: “Please join us in our fight against breast cancer.”
    republicans: **crickets**

  2. It’s interesting that we started calling trump supporters ‘the base’

  3. I disagree. Anytime is a perfect time for professional athletes to keep their mouths shut. They’re no smarter than anyone else.

    1. maybe you should follow that advice as well. When everyone else stops expressing their opinion then they should too.

    1. @Brian Jones My dad fought for our rights, and we have a right not to stand for the anthem. Deal with it.

  4. Professional athletes?.
    Where is the question regarding biological Males competing against biological professionals female athletes?.

    1. One hundred and seventy-four “biological female” athletes signed onto an amicus brief in _Hecox v. Little_ in support of transgender women competing in female sports.

  5. Humanity will never achieve true unification unless we stop dividing and fighting amongst ourselves over such trivial things like the color of our skin or where we come from on this planet and just simply look past those things and treat each other as human beings.

  6. Jemele Hill and Larry Nassar are the two people I think of when I hear the words Michigan State University.

  7. I think it’s great what Lebron James has done and is still doing by speaking out ! We need more people like Lebron that is using his platform to reach the people on the issues of police brutality and racist issues sports captures attention of almost everyone in America and I think more people will be reached on this ongoing problem because of what he is doing . Thank you Lebron James for all you are doing !!!
