To the Editor:
On my office desk I have plastic card holder that holds two football cards: 1975 Jack Youngblood on one side; the flip side a 1976 Harold Carmichael. Two Hall of Fame football heroes from my childhood. One played a Super Bowl with a broken leg. The other always played his best on broken teams. True professionals. True role models for an impressionable young child.
This past Sunday (Oct. 1) while some NFL players were taking a knee, I was taking a well-needed nap. Apparently I missed extremely rich and wealthy black athletes who carried out very emotional protests. So, were they emotionally protesting the constant gang violence and heinous gang murders that plague their very communities from which they were raised? The thousands upon thousands of fellow human beings that are shot, stabbed and violently slaughtered by viscous godless gang banger thugs each and every year?
You know the traumatic stories. The grandma who's violently shot or the pregnant women or even the precious children caught up in the constant evil crossfire. Were they protesting the sick no snitch mentality that runs rampant throughout those gang destroyed communities? Or protesting the ideology that those citizens choose to vote for at every local election which always seems to end with the same horrific results for those communities? Nope. Instead they are protesting law enforcement. Police officers who try to do their best while sacrificing their own lives and sanity to help keep some resemblance of law and order to those hellhole communities.
As always, my clairvoyance tells me you will never hear this opinion or my point of view on your TV or anywhere else for that matter. Even if 62 million people also agree. N.F.L. Now Fully Liberalized. Faithful 40-year viewer now gone fishing.
