Bodhidharma, the 5th or 6th century Buddhist monk, once said, “The ignorant mind, with its infinite afflictions, passions, and evils, is rooted in the three poisons. Greed, anger, and delusion.” Richard Cecil, the 18th and early 19th century Evangelical priest, gave it to us like this, “The first step towards knowledge is to know that we are ignorant.” Then Grantland Rice, the sports reporter, put it where the goats could get it when he spit, “A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows the public opinion.”
Well playas…I’m trippin’ off of all the duns runnin’ around here mad at Colin’ Kaepernick and all of the other pro athletes for not standin’ for the National Anthem. What’s really blowin’ my mind is that all of these boyz are ignorant to the fact that the NFL and the Department of Defense has been runnin’ game on them since 2011!!!
Check this out bruh! Players in the NFL never even stood for the National Anthem prior to 2009! Before then they stayed in the locker room while it played. The NFL figured that it was good for business to become more patriotic so they did. That’s why you now see military day, Veterans Day events at game etc. Accordin’ to a 2015 Congressional Report the Department of Defense paid $5.4 million to NFL teams between 2011 and 2014 to stage on-field patriotic ceremonies. The National Guard even got in on this foolishness by payin’ the league $6.7 million for the same thing between 2013 and 2015.
How many of you boyz remember Roger Goodell returnin’ more than $700,000 in taxpayers dollars because the skeletons fell out of the closet on this foolishness back in 2015? Oh, y’all don’t remember Darren Rovell from ESPN doin’ an entire report on this foolishness? After the joint jumped out of the birthday cake butt naked the NFL made the decision not to accept anymore bread from the Department of Defense. Why? Because they looked bad and that wasn’t good for business.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Ninety-nine percent of you cats are just jumpin’ on the “I’m mad because Kaepernick is disrespectin’ the flag and the country” bandwagon because you heard some fool sittin’ in front you say it. If the players never stood for the Anthem until 2009 then why are you trippin’ about it. Why aren’t you mad at the NFL for makin’ a fool out of you for stagin’ some fake patriotism and chargin’ the government for it. How patriotic is that?
The NFL has so much power that they can charge the government millions of dollars to put the flag on display because they can.
I keep hearin’ all of these fools questionin’ Kaep’s sincerity but nobody is questionin’ the NFL or the governments sincerity. If you’ve got to pay a boy to put on a show to get people to be patriotic and the other dun has the nerve to actually take the money. Is it really patriotic ?
So before you start blastin’ Kaepernick and all of the other duns kneelin’ or sittin’ on the National Anthem. Ask yourself which is worse, Payin’ a boy to stage the patriotic acts, takin’ the bread to execute them or kneelin’ because the duns in charge aren’t sincere about the freedoms that they’re tryin’ to sell the dun that’s kneelin’? Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Spit: verb – to say
2) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
3) Put it where the goats can get it: verb phrase – to make it as elementary as possible. To put it at ground level so everyone can understand it.
