America’s moral compass is broke and she is just refusing to fix it. You don’t have to go far to see what’s wrong with America today just look at the Colin Kaepernick situation. Freedom of speech is a lie you only have freedom of speech if you go along with the masses and what they believe in what they say and not how you truly feel.
Colin Kaepernick is being black balled for taking a stand against police brutality not against the military nor is he anti-American but somehow damn near every media outlet has turned it into everything except for what it really was all about police brutality what also makes this hilarious is the media never call the issue by its name they will say his stance or his cause never say what it really is about police brutality against minorities.
American has a funny way of telling certain people what to say how to think. I remember long time ago there was a guy in Germany that Americans said was evil he was telling people what books they can read and how they should think this man was Adolf Hitler. My question to America is what makes you any different than Hitler if people don’t have democracy the freedom of choice and their freedom of speech.
One of the people who spoke out against Colin Kaepernick was Giants owner John Mara. Mara said that Kaepernick’s protest was a reason the Giants didn’t consider and bring them in for a workout. Now some may question Mara morals and integrity see the John owner had no problem with Josh Brown the place kicker on his team when he had domestic assault charges against him.
Brown had 20 different incidents that police was called to his house for domestic disturbances but yet somehow he only received a one-game suspension in fact the Giant’s didn’t cut ties with him they rewarded him with a 2-year contract worth two and a half million sound like someone’s moral compass is broken.
The NFL has denied any collusion or black Ballin against Colin Kaepernick but it’s so obvious that even Stevie Wonder can see Colin Kaepernick has been ostracized for taking a stand against police brutality.
One of the oldest tricks of White America is when somebody of minority speaks out against something they usually go in list a person of color to try to discredit them this year fools are cooning Jason Whitlock and Steven from Django I’m sorry I meant to say Ray Lewis to hear them talk about its his performance that’s not getting him signed onto team and not the real issue is Ludacris Colin Kaepernick had 16 touchdowns last year and only 4 interceptions .
Kaepernick wasn’t even the starter last year he took over for Blaine Gabbert but yet Heckle and Jeckle (Whitlock & Lewis) want to say he’s not in the NFL because of his performance you put up those types of numbers in any form are good from the NFL to Backyard Football.
I have been playing watching and talking about football for over 40 years. I haven’t missed a live game since I was 8. But this year I’m taken the Blackout Challenge against the NFL and all NFL apparel.
Like Colin Kaepernick or not the First Amendment says he does have the right to freedom of speech. To see quarterbacks like Ryan Fitzpatrick Geno Smith EJ Manuel and Even Blaine Gabbert the one that Kaepernick replaced as the start get opportunities to play in NFL is plain silly. The NFL has a stop bullying campaign maybe they should practice what they preach.
Only in America where a black man takes a silent protest that will put people in an uproar but a white woman can hit her ex-husband in the head with a golf club not received no jail time or no sentences and be rewarded with 750 million dollars it must be the complexion for the protection. Colin Kaepernick stood up for us so we should be able to stand up for him America’s moral compass is broke. If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.
Our freedom of speech is freedom of death you got to fight the powers-that-be.

Two years ago I had a real talk moment with myself and I didn’t like the answer that I got. Have you ever been fed up with grown ass people who has nothing better to do then keep some type of drama going like an episode of Love & Hip Hop.
That was me two years ago just tried of the drama an gossip same old daily routine. For me it serve no purpose to give my point of view on someone else situation especially if the person didn’t ask me for my view on the matter nor am I doing anything to make their problem better.
If I’m minding my own business and taking care of my own affairs that doesn’t leave me with a lot of time to be worried about any body else life or situations I’m too busy securing my own peace of mind and happiness…

Who you are? Now that should be a question that everybody should be able to answer right? Who you are is defined by your words your actions how you treat people the way that we were raised and the way that we were taught and the lessening that we learned.
Have you every meet a person for the first time and they told you they was a bad person of course not people will sell you a fantasy if you buy into it. But to really learn a person or to understand someone you have to watch and listing to their words actions heart soul and mindset to get a full insight into the type of person they really are.
How you were raised has a lot to do with how you think today and the way you view certain situations or people in life. The way that you were taught and the lessons that you learned (or not) your environment and the people who surrounded you this is the very fabric of oneself and the person that you are today.
We as people are quick to say that we know somebody (I have known so and so for over 20 years) but unless you have kept in constant contact with this person and y’all have been honest with each other over that period of time 20 years is still a long time and in those 20 years you don’t know how much growth that person have had over the years. People mindset changes people perspectives changes over time every individual is different and has a different mindset the real question now is who is the person that you are talking to today.
If someone walks up to you and ask you who you really are this is one question that shouldn’t be a mystery or some type of enigma. This is one question that you should be able to answer at any time or at any given moment and answer it honestly but we know with some people honesty is not the best policy.
We can pretend deceive lie but the real person always come to the surface eventually their true representative will make a guest appearance no matter how much they fake the funk what lies you tell in the dark the truth shall come to light.
From politicians who claim they are for the people and the community but really in it for their self and they own personal gains to the so-called religious and sanctified people who really do more judging and criticizing of people then they actually do praying consoling and has mercy for the people. Good person always shows who they really are by their kind words and their unselfish acts who you really are will always come to the surface like creamier once you poured it in coffee. No matter how many lies you tell or false images you try to create for your self who you really are will always show up eventually.
