The religious right looks like a bunch of choir boys compared to the outrage culture the Progressives have brought to society. They are at least 90% to blame for the state of things.

New Balance. The official sneakers of dads who get way too into coaching their kid's little league team.

New Balance are cut wider than Nike and most other athletic shoes. If you have a wider foot, New Balance is a great choice.

Can't go wrong with the 624!

I'm due for some new 624's, which will be my 4th or 5th pair since I started wearing to New Balance. I just picked up the 623, which is somewhat similar to the 624 but with some red trim, and I also splurged on the 8503v, which has great heel support.

I also have a black walking model that I wear when lots of standing is required in a dressier setting.

Nike's core, will tend to mature over time, once they get into the workforce for a sustainable time, get married, have families. The young demographic details don't shock me. Every generation goes through this, it's called "growing up".

It was a fantastic ad.

Nike did a great job in hiding him in it until late so the racists couldn't automatically dismiss the whole thing before they got hooked.

As opposed to Dad's who sit out in the left field corner and do nothing to help the team???

Sounds corny, but I'd say most kids first little league coach has the most to do with their future in that sport.

People who think everyone should stand for the national anthem are racists?

Not at all but race has a huge influence on the hatred that he has received.
It is a free country and don't forget whom suggested he kneel for the anthem instead of sitting.....a white Veteran.



If it were Tom Brady, or Rodgers or some popular whitey whom knelt for some social reason then it would have been a totally different outpouring of emotions.

You cannot deny that race has played zero in this backlash.

Kap should, and I hope he does, win his case against the NFL for collusion.

Actually, you are wrong. A lot of folks only think Kaepernick is misguided, while they truly hate Brady.

Fine. Some white guy that people like
Personally I think those who hate Brady do so because they are jealous of his success but that is a diff story for a diff thread.


I am telling you, if a Whitey woulda knelt for some sort of social injustice this would have been a totally different story and I don't think you can deny that.

I could care less honestly about the whole topic, but if a white player said the thinks Kap said about LEOs I would have had the same reaction. Do you really think I think Behar or Pelosi etc are ok because they are white?

A lot of people were critical of whitey Tim Tebow when he knelt to thank God.

Kap has a point though, way too many blacks, many unarmed, get killed by police when they shouldn't.

How many, exactly? And how do the numbers compare to unarmed whites who are killed by police?

So says the MSM. Read actual statistics and they show a different story. Look, are some LEOs racist? Sure, but I would say most only care about getting home safe and skin tone doesn’t make a difference in that regard.

True, and that was BS when people ragged him on that.

He got run out of the NFL because he just wasn't very good.

Kap got run out, and is still out, because he was black and protested. 16-4 TD/INT his last season is something teams should want as a backup, and a possible starter but instead he gets blackballed.



...and then Tebow got a shot in baseball when he really had no reason to other than the MEts wanting to sell tix in the MiLB.


Gotta go, will leave you racists to deny race had nothing to do with what Kap is going through right now.

The shame of Kaep's protest is he's taken a real issue, which is the gang mentality within police unions that prioritizes protecting its members above protecting and serving the public(leading to it being more difficult than it should be to get bad cops off the street) and turned it into a black vs white race issue that isn't supported by readily available statistics.

This isn't JUST an issue with police unions. There's the same problem in teachers unions for example. The difference being, a bad teacher does a poor job educating your kid, a bad cop can get people killed.

Kap blackballed himself. There were some teams interested in his services. No teams were interested in the baggage that comes with him. Backups are there to hold clipboards on Sundays and be ready to play just in case. Owners don't want the circus that follows Kap in a backup.

Kap made his choices and those choices came with consequences.

All that being said...I read your posts in the football forum and I know you to be fairly sarcastic to get people fired up or arguing about things. So I can't tell if you're serious in here or not.

I sure hope you're a White man because Black men can't use that word. It's a new rule.

You are way more likely to be struck by lightning....

The point is, way too many blacks kill other blacks.... that is and should be the point. It is easy to just kneel but if one really wants to make a difference the turn in the muscle, get these killers off the streets.... turn in your neighborhood criminals. Have protests in front of the gang leaders homes.....

if you have an issue with the police and how things are handled then encourage the black youths to get into law enforcement to make the difference. It is easy to kneel but he is not making a difference.

This a load of crap! It doesn't matter if he is white or black he was kneeling during the national anthem. People that where against would have been against a white guy who did the same for the same reasons. It is offensive to to people because it disrespect the military and people who gave their live for our country. Just like burning the flag, you can be white or black but the back lash will be the same.
