    How in the blue blazes is that considered racist?

    You know Kaeperknee (and the rest of the NFL thugs) wrongly appropriated taking a knee from the military ... someone needs to point to them just like these groups claim their stuff was wrongfully appropriated by a white person.

    On a serious side ...no mention of Kaeperknee, the NFL or such so GTH over it.

    It doesn't have to make sense, whatever they say we have to go by, so it's racist. NOT!!!

    I'm about sick of people crying RACISM everytime somebody disagrees with them!

    It isn't racist but a few segments of our society has determined that they will be non-stop butthurt for all reasons real and imagined.

    A coworker just pointed out to me that the best word for people like this is BIGOT. She defined it and I even checked Webster’s to see and damn if she didn’t hit it right on the head ...
    Definition of bigot (noun)

    :a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially :one who regards or treats the members of a group (such as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance

    Her pointing out that stuff like this actually goes beyond racism does make a good point ...

    The word "racist" has long since lost all credible meaning. Its noise now.

    I am not eloquent enough to put my feelings towards these bigots in written word without getting banned.

    If something offends a person they should grow a pair (figuratively at least) and move on. Unfortunately lots of people were never told their opinion doesn’t matter and no one cares.

    Because it hurts their "wittle feelwings" So it MUST be racist?

    This is the BEST part
    Susan Druckenbrod, a member of the South Jersey Women for Progressive Change, told the outlet that she spoke to an employee at the gun range and told them just what she thought of the billboard: “racist.”

    Druckenbrod said that when she contacted the gun range, the employee said “that’s nice” in response to her accusations of racism.
    I even sent them a note on their web page.

    WORD (how do you like that? :jester:)

    I put it in the same category as "environmentalist".

    I am about to post this on their web page and offer to send them the original PDF if they'd like to send them out to their critics

    Unfortunately not too far from the truth. The billboard is not racist, but it is designed to elicit exactly the kind of response that it got. The idiots up in arms over it can't help themselves and are oblivious to how they're hurting their own cause by devaluing the term racism. Their "outrage" is just adding to the noise which reduces the signal when actual racism occurs.

    Are you a mind reader now? How in the hell do you know what kind of response it was designed to get?

    Stand for the flag. Stand for the anthem.

    Kneel for the Cross.

    Kneel for the fallen. I bet these guys kneeling wouldn't be called racist to their face by those freakin' cowards in football gear or their liberal mindless idiots who support them for kneeling during the national anthem.
