So Shaydee: #TakeAKnee

Big Mama also always said an OLD, DOTARDIC, RACIST, SEXIST leopard never changes its spots. 

I tried to do what that old sage that I miss in the White House Michelle Obama said and go high. But now like Joseline Hernandez from Love and Hip Hop when she was having that baby — I CANNOT.

As a veteran (yep, SoShaydee served her country for EIGHT years), I fought for the rights of Colin Kaepernick and all other professional athletes to take a knee in response to injustices against Black people in this country. As a matter of fact, I even fought for Trump’s rights (sadly) to tweet nonsense everyday about NOTHING. Can’t pass a bill in Congress WITH A MAJORITY to save his life but got enough time to pick a twitter fight with professional athletes.

Interesting that he feels like he has the right to do everything including grabbing women by their crotches but how dare Black people exert those same rights

As someone who fought for this country, I wish I was able to pick and choose who is granted what rights because I would rather the entire NFL take a knee during the national anthem, than Trump being able to call NFL players SOBs and their parents the B word. Interesting that he feels like he has the right to do everything including grabbing women by their crotches but how dare Black people exert those same rights? And he didn’t even SERVE this country because his big toe hurt but got so much to say.

Trump is more threatened by rich Black men who have power than he or some other white man has not given them, thus his appeal to Roger Goodell: “You better get those Black SOBs back in line….tell them to stay in their place. Tell them to stop speaking out on the racist treatment of Black people in America and police brutality against Black people and play ball.” I know some of you guys think the #POTUS is not racist and/or want to defend your questionable voting decision but, Big Mama always said if it walks like a racist, talks like a racist, it IS a racist. Well, she said it about a duck, but it holds true for everything else.

Forcing Black people to accept your monuments to the Confederacy is not being proud of your heritage.

I find it quite interesting that Trump has such harsh words and vitriol for Black athletes who don’t stand for the anthem, but had words of praise for white supremacists in Charlottesville calling them “very fine people” even after one of them rammed his car into a group of counter-protesters killing one. And all this under the guise of patriotism. Forcing athletes to stand for the national anthem or the flag is NOT patriotism – it is communism. Know the difference. Forcing Black people to accept your monuments to the Confederacy is not being proud of your heritage. It is reminding Black people what it is in this Country long after slavery ended.

Just know though, that I am only venting this Sunday morning (the same one Trump woke up to still tweeting about the NFL. But let’s be clear — he’s good with the white NFL players, it’s the Black ones he takes issue with). I am NOT SURPRISED by what Trump thinks about Black NFL players or Black folk in general (see Big Mama statement above). He STILL has a problem with Black people in 2017 and it’s the same problem he had in the 1970’s when he wouldn’t rent to us.
