NFL players explain

submitted by Blake Proctor

In a recent polling of 585 NFL players, nearly all of them were unsure of exactly what they are protesting regarding kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem. Here's a sampling of responses to the question:

“What are you protesting by kneeling during the National Anthem?”

“Pretty sure it's agains tNazis - especially the white ones.”

“We're protesting America becoming capitalistic instead of equal.”

“I'm protesting against Trump saying black lives don't matter.”

“We're against global warming and the police.”

“We're showing the world that we care about, ah, things such as.... such as... ah, freedom from suppression”

“Me and my fellow players are protesting the Constitution of Independence because of what it does to people of color.”

“We are displaying our right to stand up by kneeling for our beliefs.”

“We are protesting Trump, because he, you know, be keeping the black man down.”

“Myself is kneeling to show that just because I'm American don't mean I got to act like one.”

All above comments are from National Football League players with 4 years of an American College “Education.”

Average player salary $1,900,000……is this a great country or what!
