Kansas City Dead-Tree Racial Etiquette

Possibly the silliest newspaper reader editorial we've seen in weeks. Checkit:

'Whitesplaining' why black athletes shouldn't sit during the national anthem

I was particularly motivated to share the concept of "whitesplaining" after reading a recent letter to the editor about NFL players choosing to kneel during the national anthem, not respecting the flag (as the writer understands it) and telling us "what the U.S. flag is."

What's left of the Star gets sillier and sillier every day.
It won't be long before they're in direct competition with the "ONION" without even realizing it.

I just read her opinion article and find it offensive. I'm tired of all these journalists, pundits, college professors and provocateurs of blaming white people for everything.

While there is no doubt there are still many inequities in our country that occur, what can't be denied is the progress that we've made. And the ONLY reason we have regressed is because of groups such as BLM and politicians who coddle to these groups.

You have a presidential candidate who parades mothers of black men and women on stage as a way of garnering votes. Here's the problem, one of them was Mike Brown's mother. Turns out he robbed the store owner, fought with the cop, beat the cop and tried to take his gun. BUT this is the criminal that is repeatedly put out there as an example of Law Enforcement over-reach.

IT's a FALSE narrative that the liberals and activists continue to push and no one calls them out.

You have over-paid athletes who want to make a political statement when they should be doing what they get paid a lot of money to do......play ball!! And you have so called journalists with agendas as does the gal who wrote this article.

And where is the outrage when you have a hurricane area that has been hit and video shows what......nothing but black people looting stores, in one case a shoe store and leaving with armfuls of shoes.

So spare me the indignation you use to perpetuate this fraud on so many people and do something about the crime in your urban core, do something about dropout rate of kids of color, or the unemployment because those in the urban core don't want to work,but, they will collect tax dollars to survive.

It's shameful that the KC Star continues this type of journalism and then bitch because they are losing money.

People on the right have been SCREAMING this nonsense non-stop for some time, now.

'This is a free country & if he doesn't stand for the national anthem, he will be lynched.' Doesn't that just about boil it all down for you.

Guess what? It is a free country, & if he, or I, don't want to stand for the national anthem, then we don't have to! This is in fact, the freedom that you claim our veterans fought for.

In the meantime it would help if white police officers stopped shouting unarmed black men in self-defense. "I was never so scared in all my life". How many times do we have to hear a police officer say that before we say, "Enough!"

Hey you West Vigina fuckwad, Michael Brown was unarmed but tried to take the policman's gun from him and got killed. End of story. Do you or do you not believe those facts?

Byron you stupid ass liberal, falsely labeling everyone you disagree with homophobes, xenophobes, and racists has cost you and your fellow idiots the Senate, Congress, the Supreme Court and the Presidency. You’d better come up with new strategy, it and your Der Fuhrer crap isn’t making anything happen.

I don't care who sits but here's my problem with Peters. He doesn't know why he is sitting and cannot explain why he is sitting. Have you heard Peters speak? Let's just say he isn't the president of the local Midwest MENSA chapter. Last year he tried talking about the 1968 Olympics black power salute and whatever his explanation was, it made no sense. I can't begin to explain what he was trying to say because he doesn't know. He was kicked off of his college football team, never got a degree and it shows. Guarantee because of his athletic ability he has had tons of help every step of the way and I question if he graduated high school legitimately. Odds are he didn't. I'll give Kaepernick credit because nobody knew he wasn't standing until the media pointed it out and he has given millions to worthwhile causes. I think it's bullshit he isn't on a NFL roster too. He's better than a lot of QB'S in the league. You can't tell me he couldn't start for the Colts right now. People that defend Michael Brown don't know what the hell they're talking about. Michael Brown is one less criminal offense the planet. If Brown was alive today how many people would he have killed, carjacked, or robbed by now? It's one thing to silently protect like Kaepernick it is another to find a reason to loot and riot as a "protest" for Michael Brown. Everyone in the Brown case, including his parents, are opportunists in the worst way.

Equal opportunity does not mean equal outcome. You must use your opportunity wisely, and make something of your life. "Whitesplaining" and "White Privilege" are just buzz words used to blame whites when blacks don't use their "Black Advantage" to become productive members of society. Not all blacks are like that.

Boons act like Boons because they are Boons AND because libtards give them attention and recognition for acting like fucking boons. If you are going to reward the behavior you are going to create teh monster. That fucking simple. Fans in places like KC don't help by blowing their paychecks at Arrowhead.
