Should the NFL suspend white supremacist Drew Brees for his racist comments?

    No, because he DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING RACIST! He only said what many Americans feel, keeling during the Anthem is disrespectful to the US flag and the United States. 

    What is truly terrible is anyone who have a legitimate position that goes against the BLM movement is ignorantly labeled racist now! There is no debate, just summary execution. It wasn't that many years ago that, not openly being patriotic was considered anti-American. Normally those who are oppressed in some way see  wisdom in an open flow of ideas, not turning it around 180 degrees when they get the power!

    • You seem to care more about an old snot rag than you do about human life. Are you one of those who chant the pledge of allegiance every day and talk about the, home of the brave and land of the free, people? I dib, dib, dib and I dob, dob, dob? Do you still think John Wayne was a war hero.

    No he is not racist just like every human being sometimes our wording comes out wrong not all black sport figures support kneeling just like some white sport figures do support kneeling. The national anthem stands for what all do the freedom to choose to stand or kneel

    What racist comments? For supporting his country and honoring those who fought for it? Those who attacked him should be suspended. I actually got a Twitter account to tell him personally that he has nothing to apologize for. Liberals find racism everywhere.

    Racism is acting on the belief that one's race is superior to another. Nothing in what Brees said clearly meets that definition. His words while ignorant and offensive to many, were not necessarily racist. 

    Calling someone racist when there is no clear irrefutable evidence of racism makes the race problems in America worse.

      Telling the unvarnished truth is not "ignorance."

      What evidence are you citing that most white nfl players are republicans or conservatives?

    No.  We should eliminate the phrase "white supremacist" from the English language since so many morons use it that it has lost all meaning, like "racist" and about 50 other words and phrases morons use daily.

    The complete NFL and the NBA should all be banned and put out of business.

      I don't think we need to end all sport, but it might be reasonable to end tax breaks and subsidies for professional sports organizations.

    It's a sad day in America when an individual can't explain why he supports a tradition honoring America without being publicly ostracized.  It's also sad that an individual can't exercise his freedom to express his concerns about injustice without being ostracized.  But, Drew really should have kept his mouth shut because his statement at this point in time doesn't help things.

    Hell no, he's merely stating an opinion on respecting the nation and it's flag.  If that's racist, then we probably have over 200 millions racists in the country.

      Ever hear “All farm animals are equal but pigs are more equal” Animal Farm by George Orwell. We are experiencing exactly that now.
