That's deep. Nice!
or shallow to those that disagree  :)
When somebody thanks you for a favor you've done, respond "my pleasure", not "no problem".

What's the symbolism of taking a knee instead of sitting. I don't know enough about football.  In little league, it's what the kids do to show respect when a player on the other team gets hurt.  Is it possible that this was a compromise and he was showing respect for the symbolism while still protesting?
That was my immediate thought. But who knows with this guy.

I understand the connection. But I don't agree that the military is in any way the main theme or reason for respecting the flag/anthem.
Iknow nothing about this guy and his sit down.
However I do need to agree with CBC.
When we pleged allegience, wether in Kindergarden, or at our HS graduation, I just felt (proud) happy and lucky to be in a country that allowed us (and everyone else) the opportunity to practice relegion as we wished, and a country that allowed one to pursue their dream, and do all that they could to suceed.
My happiness was directed towards all my fellow countrymen, of all relegion, and mostly towards the govornment, who set up and enforced this system. Is the military a part of it? yes. But thats not what i was thinking about. (As I am older, my thoughts are the same, but maybe I also think of Baseball when I heat the anthem.)
No disrespect meant toward the military, but thats not what pops into my head when I see the flag.

How about donating 10 million to a cause that helps young black kids? That will grab some headlines and he doesn't have to disrespect anyone doing it.
Does this change anything

He should have done that first. Timing is everything.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Next time he should check with DDF first before making a fool out of himself.
Advice that would serve many people well.

The guy just donated a million bucks, if you still don't like him it's fine, but don't blame it on timing.
Live forever or die trying.

The only reason hes donating 1M is because he almost ruined his career buy doing something so utterly stupid. So now he has to spend extra time and money to fix the issue he just caused.
I'm not who you think I am.

How would a donation to BLM change anything?

Hint: BLM is a movement, not an organization
