NFL, if you kneel for anything, you stand for nothing: Ron Hart

The NFL has somehow opened its season and at the same time tied itself to the muddled message of professional malcontent Colin Kaepernick and the BLM movement. We are not sure what they are mad about or asking for, and we are tired of being preached to by hypocrites who do not understand their own sermon. Thus, many of us tuned out. TV ratings for the NFL opener were down 16 percent. The few fans in Kansas City booed the maudlin message that players are good while white fans are racist and in ne...

Alexander: Maybe walking, instead of kneeling, will finally make the point

We should not be surprised. Four years ago Wednesday, to the day, Colin Kaepernick first protested during the national anthem to bring attention to police brutality against minorities. Anyone taking an honest look will acknowledge that little has changed in those four years, except for the demonization of Kaepernick by segments of society that misinterpreted his action, in some cases willfully so. So after Jacob Blake was shot in the back seven times by a Kenosha, Wis., policeman Sunday while hi...
