"More NFL Players Say They Will Now Sit During The National Anthem As Well"

More: http://dailysnark.com/nfl-players-say-will-now-sit-national-anthem-well/
Colin Kaepernick made the decision to not stand during the National Anthem as a protest to the racial climate currently in the United States where he feels as if “black people” and other people of color are being oppressed.

The 49ers QB explained his actions Sunday saying, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder. This is not something that I am going to run by anybody. I am not looking for approval. I have to stand up for people that are oppressed. … If they take football away, my endorsements from me, I know that I stood up for what is right.”

After seeing and hearing Kaepernick’s actions and words, other NFL players seem to have followed. One of those specifically, Eagles’ linebacker Myke Tararres. The rookie said Monday he planned to join the protest and will refuse to stand during the national anthem.

“We’ve got an issue in this country in this day and age, and I feel like somebody needs to step up and we all need to step up,” Tavarres said. “We’ve got that right. There’s just a lot going on that people don’t want to talk about, and I feel like us as athletes, we’re looked at as role models. And I feel like with Colin Kaepernick, he’s doing a great job for standing up in what he believes in, and most people may not like that, but that’s his opinion, he’s entitled to it, and I respect him for doing it.”

"'White Lives Matter' Stages Armed Protest Outside NAACP Headquarters"

More: http://www.thenewcivilrightsmovement.com/white_lives_matter_group_stages_armed_protest_outside_naacp_headquarters

"White Lives Matter" members waving Confederate flags, bearing firearms and yelling through a bullhorn staged a rally outside the NAACP headquarters in Houston on Sunday.

White Lives Matter member Scott Lacy told Click2Houston.com that group chose the location because the NAACP is "one of the most racist groups in America."

Lacy also happens to be a member of the Aryan Rennaissance Society, a Texas-based neo-Nazi group that has described itself as "the leading force behind the WLM movement," according to the Southern Poverty Law Center:

The ARS describes itself as a "network of dedicated White Separatists diligently striving to impart a New Racial Consciousness to Aryankind.” It hopes to create “an Aryan oligarchy based on genetic aristocracy” to “enhance the Race.” The overall idea, ARS says, is to protect threatened white people from genocide and the “bastardization of the white race” through interbreeding.


I knew somebody would pull this. It was merely a matter of when.

"Twitter Mocks Trump’s Affinity For Phrase 'Many People Are Saying'"

Donald Trump’s latest unsubstantiated allegation against Hillary Clinton is that her use of a private email server as secretary of state resulted in the death of an Iranian scientist who provided intel to the U.S. As Twitter users were quick to point out, the tweeted accusation came couched in one of the GOP nominee’s favorite phrases: “Many people are saying.”

Trump frequently relies on this vague construction both to promote his own products and to air far-fetched conspiracies while distancing himself from the source. He claimed in 2013 that “many people have claimed” his cologne “Success” was “the best scent,” and in early 2015 that “so many people” have told him he should replace Chuck Todd as the host of NBC’s “Meet the Press.” In May, he used the wording to suggest that there was something “very fishy” about the suicide of former Clinton administration counsel Vince Foster.

Like his other frequently-used phrase “There’s something going on,” it suggests an ominous association between two subjects but isn’t clearly sourced enough to be discounted for lack of evidence.
