San Francisco Giants Manager & Multiple Players Take A Knee During National Anthem

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO ACCESS THE ORIGINAL FULL STORY


The following article, San Francisco Giants Manager & Multiple Players Take A Knee During National Anthem, was first published on Flag And Cross.

If you’re a Los Angeles Dodgers fans, you didn’t need another reason to hate the San Francisco Giants. And yet, on Monday, they gave you another one – if you’re a proud American.

Manager Gabe Kapler and multiple Giants players decided to kneel for the national anthem before their afternoon game.

Here we go again.

From Mercury News:

Manager Gabe Kapler, first base coach Antoan Richardson and outfielders Jaylin Davis, Mike Yastrzemski and Austin Slater were among the San Francisco Giants who knelt during the playing of the national anthem ahead of Monday’s exhibition game against the Oakland A’s.

[…]

Members of the Giants team took a knee on the same Coliseum field where former Oakland A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell became the first MLB player to kneel during the national anthem to protest racial injustice on September 23, 2017.

WATCH:

If you thought kneeling during the National Anthem was a problem a year or two ago for the NFL, just wait until the upcoming season kicks off. Taking a knee is going to be the cool thing to do.

A number of players have already stated that they will kneel, including Cleveland Browns loudmouth quarterback Baker Mayfield.

But what if coaches start kneeling? Wouldn’t that set a poor example for their squads?

Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said in a video conference with reporters on Thursday that he is considering joining his players and taking a knee.

Rhule said, “I would consider anything as we move forward. I’m supportive of the cause. I’m supportive of the movement. I’m supportive of social justice. I think for every person, coach or player that will be a very personal decision. I think it has to be made at the right time and the right reason for everybody.”

LeBron James and many other athletes went after NFL legend Drew Brees, all because the star quarterback had the audacity to claim that he doesn’t “agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country.”

Words to unite.. A mentor of mine once told me that if you listen closely, the sound of children playing is the same no matter where you are in the world. The laughing, shouting, screaming, giggling… No matter what language you speak, no matter what your race, color, religion… the exact same. At some point we all change… The reasons… Our environment, experiences, education…The voices and influences around us. If you are reading this, you are probably one of those whose voice and influence is very powerful in the life of a young person. So when you ask what difference you can make in this world… It’s exactly that. Raise, teach, but most importantly model to young people what it is to love all and respect all. There is a saying in every locker room I have been in… Don’t just talk about it, be about it. Acknowledge the problem, and accept the fact that we all have a responsibility to make it better. “Your actions speak so loudly I can’t hear what you’re saying”

Growing up in the Bay Area in the 80’s, I was a Giants fan. Up until the roid era.

With this.. further proof I’ll never provide another cent nor time to MLB.

As for Brees.. the dude walked back his tweet whereas he & his wife are total wokesters now.

Baseball is now dead to me . I agree that there is racism in America and it’s against every race , to different degrees , but I don’t agree with this kneeling during the National Anthem .
