    THEY don't care about facts. If you are a minority with money we just have to be happy they allowed us to get money and shutup.

    Not sure how someone can be mad at a person exercising their 1st Amendment rights. This is a different time where people are more "woke." While folks may not agree with his decision, who is he hurting? Exactly.

    Props to him. Honestly surprised it's him taking this stand.

    Will be fun to see him and possibly more athletes sit down all season long. Rare time I wouldn't be mad to see the 9ers go far in the playoffs just so he can do this on a global stage.


    Thread title threw me off as well.

    This is why its important for us parents to put our kids up on knowledge and not rely on the schools to do it.

    Do you think the pressure of all this will cause bad play?

    Or do you think the Niners or any other NFL team would have any grounds not to sign a QB of his caliber?

    Cuz if he plays great and isn't on a team next season the entire NFL is gonna have a problem on their hands that can easily spread to many other black players in the league.

    I think it'll be tough on him this season, his own teams fan base already kinda dislikes him.

    49ers are in a weird spot...especially with kickoff happening on 9/11. I honestly wouldn't be shocked if he's cut this week.
