…Because #BlackLivesMatter and cops are bad.

The disrespectful stunt has now spread to high school football games.

Americans are sick of the disrespect promoted by race activists and Democrat politicians like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

A new poll by Rasmussen finds that one in three Americans plan on boycotting NFL games over the disrespect to the military, police and US flag.
Suck it NFL.

A sizable number of Americans say they may give the National Football League a pass this year, thanks to the player protests over racial issues.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that nearly one-third (32{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322}) of American Adults say they are less likely to watch an NFL game because of the growing number of Black Lives Matter protests by players on the field. Only 13{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} say they are more likely to watch a game because of the protests. Just over half (52{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322}) say the protests have no impact on their viewing decisions. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

But as with most questions involving race, blacks and whites have sharply different reactions. Twenty-eight percent (28{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322}) of blacks say they are more likely to tune into an NFL game because of the protests, compared to eight percent (8{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322}) of whites and 16{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} of other minority Americans. Whites are twice as likely as blacks – 36{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} to 18{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} – to say they are less likely to watch this year, and 29{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} of other minorities agree.

San Francisco back-up quarterback Colin Kaepernick began the protests in late August when he refused to stand for “The Star Spangled Banner” before a pre-season game, citing racial and police brutality issues in America as the reason. Americans were almost evenly divided at that time over whether a professional sports organization should punish an athlete who refuses to stand during the national anthem prior to a game or match.
