    If you live next door to me, I could care less what you are. Leave me alone and I'll do the same. Once you figure out your neighbor is not the enemy, and they do the same, that's when you have a good neighbor.

    This isn't about race for me. I'm not a racist. If a group of white athletes had a cause they were protesting on the field and were kneeling during the national anthem I would feel no different. Football use to be a place to come to get away from the everyday grind for blue collar workers. Now its just political BS. The NFL shouldn't be a platform for this type of behavior.

    if the issue has made it to the football field maybe that means it’s serious enough that it needs to be addressed.

    I would like to ask these guys what they are protesting and why and ask them to defend their position
    Racial injustice?
    sure we are not a perfect country, check out some of these other nations where this type of behavior would get you executed
    No opportunity?
    these people make more money in a season than most of us will make in two decades if not a life time
    They need to take an inward look at the problems in their community
    what are they doing to fix those problems, what are they doing to help the poor education system and lack of opportunity
    sure there are problems but this is not the place to "protest"
    too many people have sacrificed too much to allow them to make a damn fine living playing children's games
    and yes the NFL, MLB, NBA, etc.... are huge businesses, that one of the first rules of business is to not piss off your customers

    NATIONAL ANTHEM

    Players, coaches and other staffers locked arms on the sidelines during the national anthem. Many fans at Lambeau Field cheered and chanted ''USA! USA!'' while a large American flag was unfurled at midfield before the anthem.

    Packers players released a statement this week saying they would intertwine arms before the game as a show of unity. They asked fans to join in the stands and at home, though it didn't appear that many fans locked arms. Many people in the crowd held up small flags during and after the anthem.

    Of course there would be little participation, it's a juvenile request. Those players can try to assert their relevance on us all they want but in the end they are only as relevant as we let them be. They are not the sun, the air, the water or the nutrition we all need to live and they will soon realize it. Whether or not they figure it out fast enough to save their careers has yet to be seen.

    I have a couple of questions for you:
    1) Do you think that blacks have it worse today than they did in ehhhhh say 1975?
    2) Do you think that this recent behavior on their part is shrinking, or enlarging the racial divide?
