NFL Announces Plans to ‘Promote Social Change and Address Inequalities in Our Communities’

During my morning Trap Line run for news items I have all these thoughts that go thru my mind.  This morning (much to my surprise because I could care less about all these professional sports and their antics) I kept having this thought that I need to comment about all these so called *professional* players promoting the art of PROTEST and DISRESPECT.  I ask why is it that they can put so much effort and time and money into role modeling to the younger people that if you don’t like something you PROTEST rather than go to the ROOT of the problem and solve that – saving all this anger producing hysteria.

In my mind we have a huge problem that began WAY back when the Black *community* decided that fathers in the home to raise the children they create with the woman they MARRY and form a FAMILY with is no longer important.  Now, so that this isn’t focused on RACE – this has happened in the other races and ethnicities too but the Black community is by far the most prevalent.  These so called PROFESSIONAL PLAYERS need to change their tactics and instead of teaching the young folks that PROTESTING things you don’t like gain you fame and fortune – or at least,  ATTENTION.  What that produces is more street rioters and protesters rather than problem solvers….  which then rolls into the cry about police brutality.  If you don’t want the *attention* of the police then DON’T participate in activities that cause the police to look at you.

If these *professional players* really and honestly want to make things better for the Black community then let them stop the kneeing and arm locking and the other theatrics they have been participating in for the media to blast far and wide.  All of which does NOTHING to improve anyone’s life.

I challenge everyone of these *professional protesters* who proclaim they are against Social Injustice to use all their energy going into the jails, prisons, public schools and all the other places where the young males can be found.  They should then begin to MENTOR them and educate them as to the better way to make things better in their lives is to MARRY the person before creating more babies and then walking off to repeat this same act over and over – making all those kids to survive without a FATHER  to head the *family*.  It is time to admit the failure of the illegitimate kids and fatherless homes.  Who better to do this than all those Black and White Sports *hero’s* these kids seem to look up to – at least for awhile.  Want to end the street riots – the protests – then redirect that energy to those young males that they need to learn how to pull up their pants, speak so others can understand them and refocus their energy to becoming ROLE MODELS by EXAMPLE of how to gain a good life by hard work rather than destroying everything around them…  then blaming the cops when they enter the scene for the lawbreaking actions.

This isn’t rocket science but it does interfere with the BLAME  GAME these Sport figures are blasting at each game.
Why isn’t the NFL mentioning this change of tactic?????  Perhaps after their bottom line becomes BOTTOMED OUT they will think of this solution.

Also, stop the welfare payments to these unmarried baby production factories.  Force those open legs to identify the Sperm donor or no $$$$. Require a marriage and the Sperm Donor living in the house (unless it is a rapist) being a FATHER to the child he helped create.

I will stop here but I am sure many of you understand what I am saying.  It is no secret that many of the Players have kids with some woman they aren’t married to and they are not heading the household so as to increase the FATHERLESS HOMES.

Let’s see these PLAYERS take a KNEE to promote FATHERS IN THE HOME.  That would open many eyes……  and it would certainly PROMOTE SOCIAL CHANGE AND  ADDRESS INEQUALITIES.

NFL Announces Plans to ‘Promote Social Change and Address Inequalities in Our Communities’

By Craig Bannister  |   CNS News

National Football League (NFL) owners, executives, players and union leaders announced Tuesday that they’re making plans to “utilize our platform” to effectuate “social change.”

The NFL and NFL Players Association released a joint statement after a meeting Monday that discussed, among other things, players’ National Anthem protests at games. The statement declares their joint plans to use the NFL’s platform to change society and “address inequalities in our communities.”

NFL.com reports:

A group of players, union leaders, team owners and NFL executives met Tuesday to discuss social issues and plans “to promote equality and effectuate positive change.”

“Today owners and players had a productive meeting focused on how we can work together to promote positive social change and address inequality in our communities,” the NFL and the NFL Players Association said in a joint-statement.

“NFL executives and owners joined NFLPA executives and player leaders to review and discuss plans to utilize our platform to promote equality and effectuate positive change. We agreed that these are common issues and pledged to meet again to continue this work together.

“As we said last week, everyone who is part of our NFL community has a tremendous respect for our country, our flag, our anthem and our military. In the best American tradition, we are coming together to find common ground and commit to the hard work required for positive change.”

The meeting included 13 players, 11 owners, NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith, NFL executive vice president Troy Vincent and commissioner Roger Goodell.

On Monday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell used his platform to promote Senate legislation. Goodell and Seattle Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin issued a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and three other senators in support of the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act of 2017.

The bill seeks to decrease the prison population by reducing the length of federal sentences for drug offenses. NFL players have cited excessive prison sentences as one reason for their protests of the National Anthem, ESPN.com reports.
