Never underestimate the ability of Americans to miss the f*ckin point. This never was about the flag, it’s about young, African-American males getting shot at a rate 21x the rest of America. They took a knee to a three-hundred year old drinking song with racist lyrics. And now elected officials want to deny funding to teams, and even cities where players are protesting. And while Trump successfully wedges us against his insane base, Puerto Rico suffers, North Korea escalates, and Americans worry about pre-existing conditions. Just shoot me.
