Default Fans are behind DE M. Bennett in sitting during national anthem

Will this help the racial situation? Or will it do more harm than good. Some fans think it might help by not standing. But I have my doubts..

Yet this is but one attempt at trying to solve our national racial problem...

Fans to join Seahawks DE Michael Bennett in sitting during national anthem

SEAHAWKS Wire .. Lindsey Wisniewski, 4 hrs ago.

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett won't be the only one to remain seated during the playing of the national anthem this season.
Bennett, who sat alone in protest of racial and social injustices during the team's preseason opener against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, received many comments on Twitter that fans will be joining him in his protest this season.

For sure some of the fans are brain dead... All things considered.. But this is spreading I believe.
Sure this racial thing needs to be settled but IMHO doing this will cause more harm than good.

Many in the black community say that the white race needs to sit down and talk this out between themselfs.
Well just by going into our membership one would know we have few racist, if any among the whites at PW.

Those that are for the most part are not to bright to start with. And the real racist are the top money winners and some are in govt. Yet among the average people in this country the real racist are in the inner cities among the black community.
And I mean to cause no harm. But the truth needs to be said and faced to help solve this problem.

What are your thoughts on this subject.

My thoughts are: Listen up, idiots. Politicians get paid for their political views. You get paid to entertain. When politicians no longer represent me, I vote them out. When you cease to entertain, I tune you out.

No more NFL for me. I'm watching girls college softball.

Lurpy, once again I must have missed what you were getting at.

I went with the title. Bennett sitting, and the article, fans + Bennett + sitting.

If you are asking if this will help. Hell no.

Does that make it clearer jimbo. See I used this to start a conversation. Just follow the words used after I get by the title.

I went with the title. Bennett sitting, and the article, fans + Bennett + sitting.

If you are asking if this will help. Hell no.
Does it help you understand now jimbo? Gee I am trying to get a decent sharing going here. The title is the lure. My words are the start of more...

Then if you want debate, start with what you want to debate. I'm not good at guessing games.

A lure? What's that about?
