TKC MONDAY NIGHT QUESTION: SHOULD KANSAS CITY CHIEFS CB MARCUS PETERS GET A PRIZE FOR NATIONAL ANTHEM PROTEST GIVEN GQ 'CITIZEN OF THE YEAR' TRIBUTE TO COLIN KAEPERNICK???
Today, an influential MSM cultural outlet offers accolades for a footballer who basically lost his career over his social justice protest against the national anthem. Locally, the similar yet far less eloquent activism of a Kansas City Chiefs player has been either politely ignored, obscured or unchallenged.
A look at the latest culture war battle . . .
Here's GQ honoring a controversial athlete the "Citizen Of The Year" title and their explanation:
Colin Kaepernick Will Not Be Silenced
Of course there's push back but that doesn't really represent the "mainstream" opinion of working sports journalists . . .
Fox News: Britt McHenry, ex-ESPN reporter, blasts GQ for naming Colin Kaepernick 'Citizen of the Year'
And so our question for tonight . . .
SHOULD MARCUS PETERS GET A PRIZE FOR HIS PROTEST???
If Mr. Peters could save the Chiefs from the annual football implosion that typically dashes the hopes of Kansas City fanboys . . . He might garner more support for his politics that are still heretofore undefined despite a really condescending interview without any tough questions.
Meanwhile, most Kansas City Chiefs fans seem desperate to move past the crisis of conscience that still looms over the NFL.
You decide . . .
