Any Racist Salutes By Any Athlete During National Anthem Should Be Forbidden

 

This past Monday evening I was going to watch the Los Angeles Rams and the San Francisco 49’s NFL football game. I had caught the last few moments of the previous game between Pittsburgh and Washington so I decided to stay on channel  and watch some of the next game. I had forgotten about the fact that the backup quarterback for the 49’s would be a focus point during the Anthem, you know whom I am speaking of don’t you? The man who has chosen to stay seated during the Anthem as a protest about how non-whites are treated here in America. Even though I believe that he has the right to make this silent statement I personally do not believe that any American should disgrace our Country in such a manner. A person, especially a person whom makes millions of dollars per year playing a game in a country where only this Country would do that for them, really has much validity in their protest, especially in such a manner. For those of you who are unaware of this young quarterback he is a person whom is half black via his Dad and half white from his Mom and even his Mom spoke out against what he is doing earlier this week.

 

Today this article is not about what the SF quarterback did or did not do Monday night, it is about something totally different that I witnessed during the Anthem. I am a person who is against any and all hate and against any and all racism, as racism is hatred and they are both a sin that should not be encouraged in any way. This article is about some of the other SF players who were standing, and giving the “Black Power” salute. I watched the game up until SF took a seven to zero lead on Washington then I went to bed. During those few moments of broadcast time I did not hear the broadcasters say one word about the players who did this very racist display of hatred. To me a blatant racist salute should not ever be tolerated in any event ever. The cowardliness of the TV broadcasters not commenting on these players doing this is sickening. I have a total belief that if at an NFL game this weekend some of the white players pull out KKK hoods and put them on during the Anthem that all of the media would go crazy, it would be the number one news story, as it should be. Doing a black power salute during the National Anthem just like the wearing of KKK hoods should be grounds for being thrown out of that game at the very least. Black racism is a disgrace to the black race just like white racism is a disgrace to the white race. Racism is pure ignorance, no matter what a person’s color is and this ignorance and hatred has no place in any Country and darn sure not during any Country’s National Anthem.

Racists Black Members Of The American Military: West Point Graduation Photo

 

A few days ago a picture was released of the first 16 black women to graduate from Americas best know military college at West Point. What these 16 women chose to do is absolutely not except-able for any military personnel especially for any Officer and upon their graduation they are awarded with the rank of 2-LT. These 16 people chose to show their “blackness” to the world and this action is nothing but racist. They all chose to have their graduation picture taken with their clenched fist salute to ‘black power’. This type of action is no different from if white Officers gave the Nazi salute or decided to wear white hoods for the picture. As a former service connected disabled soldier I take great offence to such racism in the ranks. This is something that the military can not tolerate especially among their officers. I totally feel and believe that the Army absolutely must right now discharge these 16 racists with ‘undesirable’ discharges. The Army must do this right now to make an example of them for the sake of the military as a whole. A huge part of being an Officer is the respect factor and I do not know of anyone who has served our country in the armed forces that has any respect for a racist being among them. I have no doubt that if the Army decides to take the cowards way out of this situation and not discharge these racist right now and any of them find their way into a combat unit they will be executed the first day they are in a combat situation. Respect, these racist 16 have no place in our military and the “Brass” had better grow a set of balls and do their job which includes getting these racists out of the ranks right now. If the ‘Brass’ does not do this then they have tainted the institution of West Point beyond repair as well as the reputation of the ‘Officer Class’. Why would anyone ever volunteer to serve in an Army that has racist trash as their commanders?
