These NFL players say they are not standing for the flag  because they have a problem with “police brutality” – is that a continuation of Obama’s policy when he was in office and when he formed the “pigs in a blanket” Black Lives Matter group.  I sure smell a rat here.  Obama used the Police to divide the country.  The following incident was only one of many incidents that Obama created.

Remember this incident:

Barack Obama today phoned the white policeman he said “acted stupidly” in arresting a black Harvard professor in his own home and invited the officer to visit the White House as the president attempted to defuse a growing race row over the incident.
Obama revealed he made the five-minute phone call to Sergeant James Crowley shortly after police unions demanded an apology from the president for saying the police in Cambridge, Massachusetts “acted stupidly” in arresting Henry Louis Gates on charges of disorderly conduct after the officer responded to a report of a suspected burglary.
The president said he should have chosen his words more carefully but stopped short of an apology. “Because this has been ratcheting up and I helped to contribute to ratcheting it up, I want to make it clear that in my choice of words I unfortunately gave the impression I was maligning the Cambridge police department and Sergeant Crowley and I could have calibrated those words differently,” he said.
Seeking to lighten the situation further, he said at the daily White House briefing that he had invited both Crowley and Gates for “a beer here in the White House”.
However, the president also said he felt both men could have handled the situation better.
Earlier, Steve Killian, president of the Cambridge police patrol officers’ association, denied that race was a factor in the arrest and demanded an apology from Obama and the state governor, Deval Patrick, who is African-American and had described the arrest as “every black man’s nightmare”.

“Cambridge police are not stupid. It is a great department. I think everyone that knows us knows that,” said Killian.


Why are they protesting against the flag and the country.   Football, the flag and the country have nothing to do with police brutality. It is time for them to air their grievance within the proper frame work.

When 70% of the people who get arrested are black, in cities where 70% of
the population is black, that is not racial profiling; it is the Law of Probability

People go to a game to relax and these players are taking that out of the event because they are using it as a political platform.

So, my household has stopped watching any NFL games.
