Four black NFL players are attempting to have the NFL make the month of November into an “activism awareness month” to protest police in America. A 10-page memo was sent to the league with their demands and was endorsed by Seattle Seahawks’ Michael Bennett, Philadelphia Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins, Eagles’ Torrey Smith and former NFL player Anquan Boldin.

Bennet has sat during the anthem for every game this season and has been raising his fist in a black power symbol to protest policing of black people in the United States.

The memo also blames the police for the shooting and death of Trayvon Martin. The only problem here is that Matin was not shot by police but by a neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman.

Oh well, who cares right? Blame the 'pigs!' Throw in some accusations of racism and pressure the NFL into doing your bidding or face the liberal cries of racism.

The memo reads in part, “Since 2016, police have shot over 300 men and women in this country. Some of the names and stories are familiar—Jordan Edwards, Trayvon Martin, Alton Sterling, but hundreds of others are not.”

Alton Sterling was shot by police while trying to draw his gun during a struggle with officers. The officer who shot Jordan Edwards was fired and indicted.

Sterling was shot by police after he attempted to pull out a gun on police officers while engaged in a struggle. The officer was indicted and fired. It may be important to note to people of all races and religions that pulling a gun on a cop may result in immediate death.

“To be clear, we are asking for your support,” the memo continues. “We appreciate your acknowledgement on the call regarding the clear distinction between support and permission. For us, support means: bear all or part of the weight of; hold up; give assistance to, especially financially; enable to function or act.

“We need support, collaboration and partnerships to achieve our goal of strengthening the community. There are a variety of ways for you to get involved. Similar to the model we have in place for players to get involved, there are three tiers of engagement based on your comfort level.

“To start, we appreciate your agreement on making this an immediate priority. In your words, from Protest to Progress, we need action.”

Well, folks what do you make of all this? Just another chapter in the demise of the NFL by continual accusations of racism against the police?
