  1. Possible reason for NFL ratings going down...

    Very few would say all (most) cops are "bad". The issue herein is a woeful lack of accountability when such an officer emerges. We cannot change the way police treat blacks without changing the way they treat everybody. Do that and everything should fall into place. I know a cop's job is dangerous. According to statistics, however, being an attendant at a convenience store/gas station is far more dangerous. Neither police nor gas station clerks should be whipping out guns at the first sign of possible trouble. Cops get away with it, clerks do not. We should at least hold cops to the same standard as a 3rd shift attendant at a gas station.

    I want to go on record saying; I think police have WAY too much power and discretion for the application of violence. I just happen to believe that they abuse all people, not just blacks. Blacks just perceive it that way due to Americas obvious history of racial abuse. Something has to change, but nothing will if we keep up this false racial narrative. If you or anyone else wishes to indulge, there are some stunning statistics out there that show police abuse toward whites being well in proportion with said behavior toward blacks.

    I know some people may think my comments are racist, and that grades on me. Maybe it's my clumsy words....dunno. What I do know is that my daughter has a black boyfriend and, despite him not appreciating my homemade beef stroganoff, he's a good dude and I have no quandary. I just wanted to watch football for the first time in two years. Boy....did I pick a bad day to do that. I hate celebrities whom make political statements. Let's call it a pet peeve. Catch a TD, act in a film, but keep your opinions to yourself, celebrities.

    Being stuck in the past will literally get you nowhere. That was a different time. Countless thousands of white kids walk around town with $100 jerseys that have a black mans name on the back of it, and their parents bought it for them for Christmas. Little white girls have posters of hulking black men on their walls and their parents think nothing of it, nor should they. These heroes from another age are ghosts.

    I bet I couldn't name 6 Colts players on the team. I never thought I would say that. Which is at the heart of this thread; Why are so many people tuning out? Racism, real or perceived, has no merit for discussion within the realm of sport. I just wanted to watch football. I don't care about their personal political all.

    This is what I miss about the forum.

    I was trying to get back into football and then today happened. I give up. Congrats NFL. You turned me off like a woman with a beard.

    Rosie O'Donnell is a great example of the hypocracy I wish to highlight. She is ardent anti-gun rights . Yet, she has armed body guards. I can't afford such an entourage. I can afford a Glock, however.

    That's highly dubious. Somehow Madonna and Johnny Depp now sound British when they talk. They may have lost connection with what really matters, would be my point. Years of being praised like gods has an affect on a persons perceptions.

    Oh. I see. That explains a lot.

    Ya know...celebrities with countless millions of dollars and charmed lives probably aren't the best people to speak for the common man. To them, the most important issues aren't jobs, the economy, taxes etc. To them, the most important issues facing everyday people are issues like transgender bathroom rights and black criminals being shot while running from the cops afte the commission of a crime.

    I just showed you a vid of a white kid being murdered and nobody gave a damn. But we care about Mike Brown, a violent assialant? Why? Because he was black? We are all judged on appearances. Maybe the real problem is the gangsta culture which has our youth emmulating thugs by wearing their pants down to their knees? Present yourself as such an be judged accordingly.

    I'm not sure you're intelligent enough for my time. That being said...... They make excuses for the failures of black men in America. That is how you should have comprehended my statements above.
  14. Possible reason for NFL ratings going down...

    I didn't say I experienced "racism". What happened 200 years ago is moot. This started over the Micheal Brown shooting. A violent thug who committed numerous felonies leading up to his death. The nation reeled, fires burned, cops were attacked. Kapernick took a knee. One week befiore Micheal Brown was shoot, another young man was blown away by a cop. This kid did nothing wrong. Cop was black. Victim was white. Not sexy. You didn't hear a word about this, did you? The colors were all wrong. No racism here, no story. Take that hook out of your mouth before they reel you in. If Dillon Taylor was Black, then it's a racist shooting. Right?

    I'm white as well. Yet I've been profiled and treated harshly. Sporting long hair for most my life (buzzed it years ago), Iknow what it's like to have people judge me for appearnce. When I struggled from week to week as a young man, I was indeed under the scope of suspicion. I was poor. Police don't (typically) racially profile. They profile poor people. There's a cop sitting at a red light. He/She decides to run a registration check on a vehicle in front of them. There are 2 to choose from. One, a well dressed black man in a 2017 Toyota and the other a grundgy white man driving a rusted out 1996 Buick Skylark. The cop will choose to run the plate of the Buick 100 times out of 100. Poor people are much more likely to have warrants, drugs, be intoxicated or have a suspened drivers license. The issue is the financial disperity between blacks and whites, not simpley the colors involved.
