Having thought about it, I think what these professional athletes are doing is both thoughtful and courageous. Both Dr. King and Gandhi urged noncooperatiin as a method to make it clear that oppression and racism must end, so these athletes need to be encouraged. We can all put our salted peanuts away and realize these players want the killing to end. We need to tell the NFL and businesses like Republic Urban, colleges like SCU, to act to end racist actions or no cooperation. It is about life and liberty so I will take a knee to salute them and call out people for not treating people like people. Time for us all to pay attention and support these efforts.
