Then maybe they could take their privilege and actually solve some of the problems impacting those less than fortunate communities. 'Cause a raised fist doesn't stop gun violence, single parenthood, lack of respect for law enforcement, or a non-existent education ;.)

Pro-tip from normal American. Stop accusing me of being part of the problem.

Maybe they will go kneel on the streets of Chicago during the off-season.

This.

That's been my issue with this "protest" all along--- the kneeling was all empty rhetoric... something trendy... narcissistic.

If they want to help then volunteer to tutor some kids in the schools, go on a ride-a-long with a cop and speak to the police about their concerns with how they are doing their job, go out to the black community and speak to people about what they can do on their end to mitigate the risk of being shot by police, ,etc.

What, an NFL player is going to file a lawsuit so he doesn't have to stand for the Anthem? 03-lmfao03-lmfao03-lmfao

An NFL 1%er has 100% more privilege than all of us on this board combined.

Also the only person in communities of color with a voice that people will listen to.

RE: The fans have won the fight...
I've always found the player protests ironic given that the only racial disparity in the NFL is the over representation of African Americans in the league at the expense of asians and Caucasians. The only disparate impact of the NFL on african Americans is that it has made a ton of them millionaires. If they want to protest racial injustices outside the NFL then protest them on your your own time, not during during a game or even worse during the anthem.
