Out to dinner with friends Sunday night and got embroiled in the whole ‘Take a knee/NFL Bullshit.”

For the record, I hate football. It’s a boring game played by a bunch of domestic abusers giving each other traumatic brain injuries. I'm paralyzed with the not caring. The fact that the NFL is classified as a non-profit, which allows for the stadiums to be built at taxpayer expense to enrich team owners, mystifies me.

SO – if someone uses their constitutionally protected right of free speech to make a point AND it makes racists mad enough to stop watching football on TV, then I see it as a win-win.

AND FINALLY – if you are ignorant of the legacy of institutionalized racism in this country, understanding of peoples of colors horrific experiences at the hands of police and white people in general, or current events, then you need to work on your stunning lack of education and empathy. YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM.

WoW!! It felt great to get that out of my system.
