Dean James III% AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

Well, unfortunately the new popular thug tradition of disrespecting the National Anthem and America in general has reached it’s way to the NBA. Yes, and I will now be boycotting them along with the NFL.

A black singer named Denasia Lawrence took to center court to sing the National Anthem at a Miami Heat preseason game and opened up her jacket to reveal a “Black Lives Matter” shirt. Then she took a knee and proceeded to perform…

I don’t know about you but I’m so sick of this garbage.

The part-time Miami Heat operations employee posted her video and statement on Facebook, saying she wanted to recognize the “war on black and brown bodies,” claiming that minorities are being “unjustly killed and overly criminalized.”

Here’s her post in it’s entirety:

When I took the opportunity to sing the national anthem at the Heat game, it was bigger than me.

Right now, we’re seeing a war on Black & Brown bodies— we’re being unjustly killed and overly criminalized.

I took the opportunity to sing AND kneel; to show that we belong in this country AND that we have the right to respectfully protest injustices against us.

I took the opportunity to sing AND kneel to show that, I too, am America.

As a social worker, I’ve worked with youth, families and veterans, and everyday they all teach me the value of fighting against injustice— that all are treated equally no matter their race, gender, sexual orientation, or physical abilities.

I didn’t get paid to sing the national anthem; nor was this moment about any sort of fame. Black Lives Matter is far larger than a hashtag, it’s a rallying cry. And until our cry is rightfully heard, protests will still happen and demands will still be made!

The Miami Heat identified the singer as Denasia Lawrence. The team said of her gesture, “We were unaware of it ahead of time.”

FOX reports that the anthem issue has been a major topic in the sports world in recent months, starting with the decision by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to not stand for its playing. Kaepernick cited racial injustice and police brutality among the reasons for his protest, and athletes from many sports — and many levels, from youth all the way to professional — have followed his lead in various ways.

“All I can say is what we’ve seen in multiple preseason games so far is our players standing for the national anthem,” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in New York earlier Friday, at a news conference following the league’s board of governors meetings. “It would be my hope that they would continue to stand for the national anthem. I think that is the appropriate thing to do.”

The NBA has a rule calling for players and coaches to stand during the anthem.

Yeah, well I doubt the NBA can control these people. Only time will tell.

Until then, I won’t watch.

While I do miss watching football to some degree, I won’t really miss watching basketball very much.

It’s just not my thang.
