    Oh, and I forgot about how it worked when people said kneeling during the national anthem would stop because....tRump.

    LoL
    Calling people racist just how weak and stupid the name callers are.

    The only changes made by BLM have been senseless destruction, looting, and divisiveness.

    Kneeling during the national anthem just makes people look like dumb asses. It accomplishes absolutely nothing other than to show everybody that a lot of professional athletes are spoiled, pampered, easily led, disrespectful and unappreciative of the nation that gave them great wealth and prestige for playing a child's game, as well as just stump stupid.

    Assigning racism to everything that has the name of a color in it is dangerous. Not everything was born from racism and one could argue is a conceded and narrow way of thinking. It's not always about black people. This radical way of thinking could be viewed as an underlying attack on white people and an effort to wipe out everything white. It will only fuel more division.

    Removing statues and renaming things changes nothing. Systemic racism doesn't exist. It's just a power grab.

    I disagree, I believe it exits. We should acknowledge how it started but the conversation shouldn't end there. At some point saying that the devil made me do it loses it's weight.

    The concept of "systematic racism" is just a cliché at this point. Impressionable people who fail to examine issues and think for themselves cling to these clichés and slogans.

    What facts and data do you base your belief on?

    Well I can only point to the categories in which systemic racism is defined, wage gaps, poverty, education, professional positions, and the justice system.

    We can debate what defines systemic racism or we can discuss those who have played a role in it and how it is not going to go away anytime soon until blacks decide they have also played a role in keeping it alive.
