Benjamin Franklin once said, “We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.” Richard Cecil, the Evangelical Anglican priest, gave it to us like this, “The first step towards knowledge is to know that we are ignorant.” Then Anna Quindlen, the author and journalist, put it where the goats could get it when she spit, “Ignorant free speech often works against the speaker. That is one of several reasons why it must be given rein instead of suppressed.”
Well playas…the more we allow idiots to express themselves on social media the more we expose the ignorance in America. On Sunday night before the Colts/Texans game. Indianapolis tight end Dwayne Allen kneeled at the end of the National Anthem to say a prayer like he’s always done accordin’ to him because I’ve never paid attention to it. Shortly thereafter, boyz on Twitter went nuts and started sendin’ him hateful messages etc.
So ole boy felt it necessary to put this video out on Colts. com to say, “For every game of my career, I have taken a knee toward the end of our anthem. To say a prayer for every man that steps on the field. Because of recent events, I explain to you why I’m kneeling on the field. After reviewing some of the comments over the social media platforms, I realize sometimes a few will spoil the bunch. It was a vast majority that was expressing words of hate. Not love. Not devotion. And not pride for our great nation. What I want most is for this world to be a better place for everyone who lives in it, for this country to be a better America for everyone that lives in it.”
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! First of all, that man shouldn’t have to explain to folks what and why he’s doin’ what he’s doin’! He was simply sayin’ a pray but if he had chosen to kneel the entire anthem it’s his right and freedom to be able to do it. It blows my mind that people run around this country callin’ themselves Americans and don’t know what the First Amendment actually says and means. Half if these duns have never even heard of the First Amendment until boyz started protestin’.
Let me break it down like an O.G. at a neighborhood BBQ. The First Amendment prohibits the makin’ of any law respectin’ the establishment of religion, ensurin’ that there is no prohibition on the freedom of exercise of religion, abridgin’ the freedom of speech infringin’ on the freedom of the press interferin’ with the right to peaceably assemble, or prohibitin’ the petitionin’ for a governmental redress of grievances. In other words playboy, it is Dwayne Allen’s individual right or his ability to come together with other people to collectively express, promote, pursue, and defend their ideas, if that’s what he was doin’! The right to freedom of association is actually recognized as a human right, a political right and a civil liberty.
So how are you goin’ to call yourself a diehard patriotic American and not know that bruh? How are you gonna holler at a boy about bein’ American and bein’ patriotic when you don’t know what the freakin’ constitution actually says about bein’ American! That’s like tellin’ a boy that you’re a diehard Michigan fan and you don’t know the first verse of “The Victors” nor do you know what a boy is talkin’ about if they walked to up you and said “Go Blue!” How are you tellin’ me that you’re a Notre Dame fan and you have no idea where Notre Dame is nor do you know what “Wake Up the Echoes” is.
Can I really be a good standin’ member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. if I don’t know critical information that all brothers are supposed to know? If a boy walks up to me and says G.O.M.A.B. and I have no idea what he’s talkin about I’d look like a darn fool. And that’s the edited version.
So when people blast Dwayne Allen for doin’ him they look like those same darn fools tryin’ to tell him how he’s supposed to act in this country. The First Law of God says to Love Thy Neighbor! That’s a universal law not just an American law bruh. If Dwayne Allen decides to stand on his head freakin’ head durin’ the National Anthem he has a right to do so because the First Amendment says that he does. 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.
