Seahawks get in on the act

It appears that numerous players want to get in on Kap's act. All of this is truly disheartening. With all it,s faults, the United States is still the best country to be born and raised in, regardless of one's race. 
Over the course of our history have we made huge unspeakable errors, sure. However we cannot rewrite history, hopefully learn from it. My personal goal of changing the type of person I was has taken the last 30 years of my life and I still have faults needing a lot of work.
 My point being true change takes time and considerable effort. Instead of divisive actions such as Kap's, wouldn't we all be better served as God created us, in His image. Aren't all of us created as equally beautiful in God's sight? Many will scoff at my reference to our Creator, and that's fine with me. 
II feel that things will not get better for any of us as long we concentrate more on name calling and belittling each other. Each community, black, white, Asian, etc. need to look at our own faults before we point our fingers at the faults of someone else.

Kap refusing to stand for anthem.

Recently a lot of discussion has occurred regarding racism in the U.S. I believe that racism is taught at an early age. As a white male who has lived in several major cities I have experienced first hand the problems walking while white ┬ácan cause. I also was a gang member in my youth and if you were not white, you entered our area at your own peril. It took years of self examination an work to change who I was. We all need to take a good hard look at ourselves in the mirror. We were all created in God’s image and need to understand that. Each and every life is extremely important. I feel that if you can’t bring yourself to understand this very basic tenant of our existence, than Woody Allen was right that we are only here to suffer and die. Each of us needs to do our very best to overcome the decisiveness actions like C.K’s have only made worse. It only comes across as disrespect to others and any larger point he may be trying to articulate gets lost in the noise. Can we all, as proud Americans work to re establish our respect for human life, please, before it is too late?
