 Good morning 

Well I don’t usually do this – post videos – but sometimes it is just necessary.

Brave people need to be recognized.  There certainly seems to be very few of them around!!

God bless this brave pastor.  

Jason Whitlock: NFL showing a ‘failure of leadership’ on anthem, caving to pressure from Black Lives Matter

“This goes against every value that the NFL has built itself on,” he says contributor Jason Whitlock responded Monday to the NFL reportedly planning to play the Black national anthem before games, calling it a “lack of leadership” and a “failure of men to stand up and stand on the principles that they say they believe in.”

“When I look at what the NFL is doing, this goes against every value that the NFL has built itself on. Professional sports have built themselves on the celebration of Americana, the ideas and values that best exemplify America,” Whitlock told “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

He said that professional sports built itself on unifying America. Furthermore, Whitlock raised a concern that NFL players will be standing for the Black national anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” and then kneeling during “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

“The NFL will run off a nice fat chunk of its audience and will never be seen the same again because of the failure of leadership throughout the NFL,” Whitlock said.

The reported decision to play the song comes following the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd, which led to nationwide protests over racial inequality and police brutality. According to the ESPN report, the song will be played before “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

The NFL has not commented on the reports.

Whitlock said that Black Lives Matter is a “Marxist political organization” that does not stand for “Black death nor Black men.”

CNN’s Don Lemon scolds Terry Crews, says Black Lives Matter is about police brutality, not Black-on-Black violence

Crews has come under fire for tweeting that he wants to ‘unite people’ regardless of race, creed or ideology

CNN host Don Lemon lectured actor Terry Crews on Monday night about the meaning of the Black Lives Matter movement, insisting during an intense conversation that it’s about police brutality and has nothing to do with Black-on-Black gun violence.

“Black lives do matter, but, when you’re talking about an organization, you’re talking about the leaders. You’re talking about the people who are responsible,” Crews said as Lemon interrupted to say Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was once seen as extreme.

Crews then brought up a surge in “Black-on-Black” gun violence that left multiple children dead since June 20.

“The Black Lives Matter movement has said nothing about this,” Crews said. “Black people need to hold other Black people accountable.”

Aren’t we glad that a few folks are willing to tell the truth?
