    Very well said, Baloney.

    Many Whites just don't see racism until it smacks THEM in the face. Until then, there is no problem. We are all equal (said with tongue in cheek)!

    I have never purchased a football jersey. But I am thinking about buying a Kaepernick shirt. I guess I have to get his college jersey, since he no longer plays with a team.

    A bar in northern KY is allowing fans to come and burn NFL jerseys. I may call them today to ask when they plan to have a mass burning copies of the Constitution.
