Browns QB Baker Mayfield to kneel during anthem

snip:

"It’s about equality and everybody being treated the same because we are all human. It’s been ignored for too long and that (is) my fault as well for not becoming more educated and staying silent.

If I lose fans, that’s OK. I’ve always spoken my mind. And that’s from the heart."

'Time for a change:' Cherokee Nation removes monuments dedicated to Confederate soldiers

snip/

Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin Jr., in a prepared statement, said both monuments, placed on capitol square nearly 100 years ago when the property was a county courthouse and owned by the state, needed to be removed because "it was time for a change."

“We’ve suffered for centuries with too many others telling our story for us as they see fit,” Hoskin said a news release. “It’s difficult to tell our story when we have non-Indian-driven monuments talking about the Confederacy, when they greet people as they come into our Cherokee Nation museum. It was time for a change.”

Lifelong, older white AZ repubs protest and will vote for Biden

"I think the last three to six weeks have been a turning point," says Tom Rawles, 70. "We can always fight over the issues. But we need to cut out the cancer that is infecting the body politic of America."
That cancer to their party, the couple says, is Trump.
"We'll support Biden not because we agree with him on issues," Linda Rawles says, "but he's a decent, kind, sane man.
I've considered myself a Republican since I was 13. We're not at home in our party. We're not Democrats. We don't have anywhere to go."
