    It’s not there platform! If there employer allows for them to protest or take knee then ok. Doing just cause on TV alot of people don’t want to see that or live there lives that way.

    I don’t want my entertainment infused with race debates, politics, crime rates, LGBTQ stance, religion, pro life stance, or anything serious. We watch sports to get away from the grind, not to be reminded of it. What’s next? Are they going to deliver your bills at the movie theaters? How about a promotion exam at the club.

    • The athletes you expect to perform for you are human beings. They live in this world the same as everyone else.

      That comment ‘make good trouble’ and attributed to John Lewis just rocks my socks off. I respect and embrace the actions of sportswomen and sportsmen to use their professional sporting background as a basis to advance social justice for everyone.

    • Robert Alker – me too! Let’s show our respect with solidarity.

    We are one nation, under God. We are all one nationality – one people. Those who seek to divide us do so for their own not to help those who truly need it. We have accomplished so much in 245 years – think of another century of working TOGETHER as Americans to achieve even more. Trump 2020; Haley & Scott 2024!
