There is a phrase that my grandfather would say “You Reap What You Sow” It simply if you palnta seed or an idea it could sprout into something.
Well seems Al Mackey’s seeds are bearing some growth now. He and others have been saying for quite sometime now how racist anything connected to the Confederacy is. I am not denying racism at all, in fact I have said many times in many different places that racism existed under the United States flag also.
Now I don’t follow sports figures much, and this is the first time I am really aware of a sports figure protesting the national Anthem or the US flag. That being said I want everyone to know that Mackey’s attempt to spread hate by using racism as vehicle is working. Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the National Anthem and raising the flag, because of the treatment of people of color, is proof that Mackey’s message is getting across. Read one of many stories here. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/san-francisco-49ers-colin-kaepernick-refuses-stand-national-anthem/
Good Job Mackey.
