Kneeling for what?

Don't be fooled. The point of the entire movement is being co-opted and shifted. None of this surface level kneeling has anything to do with #Kap and the murdering of innocent Black men, women and children by law enforcement. These players and owners are taking the easy way out by galvanizing against a popular, common target in Donald Trump but this has never been about Trump. In doing this, the owners resurrect their images and appear in tune with the movement and sympathizing with the proletariat while being absolved of having to answer for their prior stances. Shame on all of the players who felt enough "courage" to kneel against Trump but not for the killing of men, women and children that look just like you and the player who served as the catalyst for the entire movement.
