And I am not addressing you ma’am.
African American has nothing to do with it.
How did we even get into the race issue?
Someone must have been losing the argument and had to go to To familiar territory.
That wasn’t my intent to imply he was/is a racist. Just drawing a parallel to Athletes who fight for rights that are often counter to the current social institutions.
@Sheriff Joe - I apologize if it came across poorly.
Don't apologize. He is a liar and a racist by his own admission.
Now that the name calling has begun I will be the first to apologize when I am in the wrong.
In hind site, my post should have have a little more clarity in that history tends to paint a better picture of those who fight for what they feel are social injustices versus those who attack them mid plight.
I did not in anyway mean to imply you were racist.
Yah....cause I do it all the time, right!?!!
Thank you and we are all good.
Now I am sorry for jumping to conclusions.
The Federation is not taking a political stand. The Federation didn't tell these ladies if they had to sing or where to put their hands, they let the players choose. That's apolitical. Why are some underestimating the intelligence or the capabilities of the ladies on the team and say they are blindly following Rapinoe. These ladies are well educated, hard working, and tough as ####. They know what they are doing individually. It's not easy to get 23 strong willed women on board. They are united for a common goal and they know how to get there. Regardless of whether I support their position, I support them as a team and as individual human beings. I support the fact that they understand they only have a short time on the platform and are trying to make the best of it - smart ladies. Pink headbands and pink hair - breast cancer awareness! May all our children, and us too, have the insight and strength to try and work towards a better future in a nonviolent manner. God Bless America and her great Soccer USWNT.
I think you need to address the rainbow jerseys and explain how that is not taking a political point of view. I happen to agree with the political point of view, but that's not the point. I agree this time, but what about next time.
I don't think you are being honest with yourself. If they were advocating views that you despised, there is no way you would be writing that. Seriously, if one of the ladies was advocating anti-semitic, racists, or homophobic views, would you really be calling her smart to use US Soccer as a platform to do it? I think not.
I don't necessarily agree with the political point of view, but couldn't have said it better myself.
All this is starting to make me sad now.

US women's soccer player on video at NYC parade: 'Hide your kids, hide your wife, and lock your f***in' doors ... I'm comin' for all y'all b***hes'
'We got the key to the motherf***in' city'

Megan Rapinoe — the biggest star of the U.S. women's soccer team — raised more than a few eyebrows by saying prior to the squad's World Cup win that she's "not going to the f***ing White House" to celebrate with President Donald Trump, but she's far from the only player on the team who drops f-bombs for public consumption.
Goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris has gained quite a bit of notoriety through her Instagram stories chronicling the team's off-the-field antics. SBNation called Harris' story of the post-World Cup locker room celebration "nothing short of phenomenal. So good, in fact, we decided to rank the best moments from her story because it was just that amazing."
The outlet noted moments during which Harris said, "You're f***ing welcome for this content, bitch!" and "This content's f***ing gold, bitch!" along with video of star Alex Morgan twerking — as well as Harris yelling for Rapinoe to "get her ass in the f***ing locker room."

U.S. Soccer on Thursday didn't immediately respond to TheBlaze's request for comment on the video.
That’s nothing compared to the things that I have heard and said in a college football locker room. Were you ever an athlete? I caught my 10 year old swearing while playing Fortnite with his friends.
Stop trying to act like people don’t talk like that. It’s pretty tiresome and your agenda is transparent.
I know people talk like that. Did you see the team on GMA with all the little fans in the audience?
Would you like them or your little kid hearing their language?
BTW, they are in a mutha fuckin parade not a fuckin loca room y’all.
How fucking embarrassing and why is she trying to sound black?
What agenda am I promoting?
Yes, Rapinoe was the MVP. Ask England how difficult it is to make 3 PKs. Lavelle was masterful in the Final but inconsistent throughout the tournament. More attention should be given to Naeher's play. While she didn't have many saves, there were several crucial stops that kept the US ahead. And because she did, we don't hear a peep about Hope Solo. Thank goodness.
If you choose to watch mass-hysteria-media then don't complain about the coverage. By now you should know what you're going to get if you turn it on.
I know it’s the time and age of social media. And as overjoyed I’d be with winning a World Cup or as frustrated with closing the gaps on pay equity. But, I wonder how often individuals regret their posted videos, instagram posts, etc? My rule of thumb is to never take a picture with alcohol in my hand, to not post/record anything on a public forum like Facebook that can put you into a precarious position. Or post while inebriated on this site.
The safest rule of thumb -- assume everything you ever write (private, public, social media post, email, text) will one day be printed on the front page of the local newspaper for everyone you know to read.
With your real name attached to it.
My rule of thumb is not to post anything you wouldn't want your mother to read.
