    Taking this to a whole other level.

    He certainly has the right to say whatever he wants, but I am surprised at the level of vitriol and hate directed toward the U.S,A.

    It is not a perfect country...for sure,

    Is this the best way to correct injustices or is it igniting racial tensions and building a huge wall and exacerbating divisions in this country.

    Does NFL still want to align itself with this messaging?

    It is very sad.

    He’s probably just looking forward to Cuba’s national holiday.

    Minorities and women have suffered oppression in this country for the vast majority of its existence. Some might even argue all but you know I have low expectations for a lot of the old myopic grandpas here.

    Sorry if you find that fact inconvenient. Wait, nope checked and turns out I'm not sorry.

    This isn’t a new take by him. He’s been saying this for years.

    You can use how Germany spent its time atoning for WWII and the Holocaust (6 years) as a direct contrast with how America has behaved as a nation after 350 years of slavery/Jim Crow. It’s no wonder the country that has spent the last 50 years trying to pretend we were past it all and to move on still has significant racial issues up to today. And this isn’t just an American introspective, our own enemies know you can divide this country quite easily over race and it’s been documented in intelligence briefings.

    Not really surprised there are some people that don’t care much for a holiday that celebrates the partial creation of a document that didn’t do anything for them.

    Oh well

    Wow he has zero chance of getting another job in the nfl

    Having said that it might be balanced to update history texts with accuracies around Columbus causing genocide, eradication of Native Americans, slavery of black humans, chinese railroad workers, and japanese internment camps. None of these were covered in the school texts we had decades ago.

    The holiday should be redirected to a celebration of what the country can be, with contributions by all people, balanced between liberty and democracy, the individual and the community.

    Hell, I should start writing Biden’s speeches. :haha:

    Why are we talking about a former backup for the 49'ers on this Patriots board?

    Its interesting because if the USA did not revolt, african Americans may have been freed sooner.

    I said the same thing 3 years ago when he first started his crusade and I'll say it again.

    He needs to leave the country.

    He's a fraud and has zero interest in making this country better.

    So please provide some of your brilliant insight to a question that has me confused.

    Why do so many people want to migrate from Africa to a horrible, racist country like the United States to be brutalized?
