doesn't matter if he spends 365 days a year in the U.S., he is not an american, and kneeling during the american anthem wouldn't be right. there are other ways to voice your opinions regarding racial injustice and not just through social media. in fact during the austin drivers press conference would've been a good time to reiterate his stance but he chose not to.TAG wrote: ↑Sat Oct 21, 2017 2:57 amIn the US black males 18-34 have a nine times higher chance of being shot and killed by police than a white male the same age. Lewis spends quite a lot of time in the US and he's in the right demographics so yeah, he's nice time more likely to get shot by a cop while he's here too. Whatever he does or doesn't do is fine by me, his decision. The facts are the facts and everyone in this country should be aware of the issue and if they're uncomfortable about it, maybe demand change instead in the policing practices instead of the athlete's choice to protest.
the problem with entertainers and athletes everyone thinks they're MLK or Mandela or Ghandi on social media cause of all their followers. lets see how you do regarding your right to free speech when the checks are not coming in, lets see how much of a civil rights activist you are then. there's a difference when your a keyboard warrior civil activist vs true civil rights activist.
