Oppression or Privilege?

Is a football game the proper venue to disrespect veterans, patriots and families? Many Americans are outraged after emptying their wallets to support the NFL - and YET the NFL allows this un-American behavior to continue. What kind of message does this send to our children? Two former military professionals hold a thought provoking discussion on patriotism, racism, and American exceptionalism.

Feeling oppressed? Your spoiled, $3M a year salary can’t even comprehend oppressed. Or maybe your definition of oppression is $336K/year in child support? It may be in the case of now unemployed Antonio Cromartie. Cromartie happens to be the target of my wrath because I was there at Wembley Stadium in London last Sunday when this happened. Did Colin Kaepernick ignite a disturbing trend in the NFL that’s now spreading across America?
