America, Donald Trump, and Philadelphia Eagles: No Players Knelt During The National Anthem at Super Bowl Lll @balleralert No Players Knelt During The National Anthem at Super Bowl LII- Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sunday night, the majority of America tuned in for the Super Bowl. As P!nk started to sing her rendition of the national anthem, you may have noticed not one player kneeled. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The big game was held in Minneapolis and the opposing teams were the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you watched as the anthem was sung, Patriots stood with their hands over their hearts, as did the Eagles. Back in 2016, ColinKaepernick proudly set off the movement to kneel during the anthem to highlight and protest police brutality, oppression and the social injustices that have most recently plagued our country. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since then, many players have continued Kaepernick's protest, even in his absence. Despite the backlash from NFL sponsors, owners, and Donald Trump, the protests lasted throughout much of the season. However, during the biggest night in sports, players stood for the anthem, putting an end to the longstanding controversy- for now, at least. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ironically, before the game though, Trump released a statement calling for America to "proudly stand for the National Anthem." Trump also held a Super Bowl party in his West Palm Beach, Fla. golf course before flying back to Washington D.C. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Eagles beat the Patriots, 41-33.

Alive, Children, and Family: Let's Talk: Why Is It Important For Blacks In High Positions To Stand Up For Their People? @balleralert Let’s Talk: Why Is It Important For Blacks In High Positions To Stand Up For Their People? - blogged by @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You would think that in 2017, the slave mentality of some people wouldn’t be present. Well, guess what? It’s here and it’s up to us to stand up for our rights. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We can protest as much as we like but there are some people in this society that don’t give a damn how blacks feel. Everyday we are constantly reminded that our opinions don’t have any type of substance and we are tired. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are so many black people that are in higher positions that have a platform to stand up for us as a whole but refuse to do so. I’m sick and tired of hearing, “I don’t want to lose my sponsors” or “This is my job and I have to do what I’m told.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is pure BS! That’s slave mentality. You like being mistreated by “the people” at the top. Our ancestors did not care whether they had a job to fulfill or not. They spoke up every chance they got and we must do the same. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We cannot let this celebrity in chief continue to degrade us and treating this country as a damn dictatorship. This country is supposed to be moving forward but we keep getting knocked backwards. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you have a platform speak up. Your children, significant others, and family are looking up to you for guidance and support. Don’t let them down by being silent. Speak the hell up! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don’t let us continue to be degraded on a daily basis because of the color of our skin. Our ancestors fought for our freedom and we must continue to keep the legacy and hope alive. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are counting on you, so do what’s right. Stop thinking with your wallet and start thinking about how your boss only sees you as “his slave.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are your thoughts?
