A very straightforward solution to the NFL protests was brought up by no other than Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal. A simple solution that glorifies America, it’s flag and it’s people.
In a recent interview Barkley said:
“I’m sick of hearing about protests. It’s time for us to put some action (behind it),”
“I’m proud of NFL players for finally getting together with the owners (Tuesday), talking about prison reform and things like that. We’ve got to work with the police. I want these players — they’ve got so much money and so much visibility, they can go to the owners of these teams and say, ‘Hey, listen, let’s go to these communities and put some time and some effort in there.’ We have spent so much time worrying about who’s kneeling and who’s got the fist up, we have not come up with solutions. So I’m sick of hearing about the anthem protests.”
Communities being “abandoned” has nothing to to with race. However it has everything to do with politics.
In trying to help people, the Democrats wound up hurting these communities even more.
However, there is still something that can be done about this situation. The start is by actually helping people instead of only saying you would.
Shaq commented on Charles Barkley’s statement:
“I agree with Chuck. Enough talking. When are we going to do something about it? Let’s just get something done. Make this world a better place.”
Barkley ended by saying:
“We’re all in this thing together. It ain’t a black or white thing. It ain’t a cop against people. It’s all of us.”
Do you think this is the right thing to do? What do you think of Charles’and Shaq’s statement?
