Minutes ago, three Philadelphia Eagles players raised their fists in protest during the national anthem in, ironically, Soldier Field. These NFL players have chosen their side, and it is not a side friendly to police officers, and white people in general.
The raised fist logo may represent unity or solidarity, generally with oppressed peoples. The black fist, also known as the Black Power fist is a logo generally associated with black nationalism and sometimes socialism. Its most widely known usage is by the Black Panther Party in the 1960s. A black fist logo was also adopted by the northern soul music subculture.
Now before people claim I am overreacting here, if these NFL players were taking shots at the military, people would be rioting in the streets. Rightly so. The fact is these pampered pricks are celebrated when they protest against the police because in the grand scheme of things, cops don’t matter. Not in politics, not in sports, and not in public.
Fuck Malcolm Jenkins, Steven Means, and Ron Brooks. Fuck the Philadelphia Eagles, and fuck the NFL. I am done with you forever.
