Michael Bennett, the Seatle Seahawks player who has just signed a $30 million NFL contract has taken the protesting too far. As well as just kneeling down during the national anthem, which is his right to do, no matter how disrespectful others might see itas., he has now taken to starting a new trend when tackling white layers.
Each time he sacks a player (only while players, mind you) he raises his fist in a “black power” salute. This is a racist and ethnocentrist sign that is all about the supremacy of one race. By doing it when tackling only white players, he is making a racist statement that has no place on the football field.
According to Freedom Daily:
The black power fist is an infamous symbol of racism that black hate groups have used for decades. The Black Panther Party uses this gesture frequently, whose leader Khalid Muhammad called on his followers back in 2012 to kill all white babies, in a disgusting terroristic tirade that you can read in its entirety here.
Consider if a white player made a hand gesture that signalled race supremacy every time he tackled a black player, perhaps the Heil Hitler salute? Would there be any question of its inappropriateness? Or would it be shot down by every area of the media and a full apology demanded?
These protests are no longer about racial equality, don’t be fooled. They are about hate, division and power. And every American needs to stand up to this regardless of skin color. Withhold your hard earned money from those who push hatred and division.
