TurtlegramSome of Mr. Oppong’s teammates, however, said they plan to join him in a kneeling protest at an upcoming game. Senior Joseph Bolay said about half of the team had agreed to take part as of Monday afternoon.

“All of us on the team fully support Michael,” he said. “We want to show that we’re behind him 100 percent.”

Hold on one second. I’m not a math major or anything, but I’m pretty sure “half the team” is not the same thing as 100%. If only half the team feels the need to participate in this publicity stunt, then your team does not “fully support Michael.” They half support him. The other half probably can’t stand him and just wants to play football. This is why schools need to put an end to this shit. Because they’re splitting teams apart. If you wanna talk about politics then join the debate club. Football games should be about football and nothing more.

What if one of his teammate’s has a police officer for a father and finds this whole thing offensive? Is he gonna be forced to participate in this? What’s he gonna feel like when he’s one of the only one’s standing? Are the kids who aren’t standing gonna call him racist? Are they gonna block for him on the football field? Football is the ultimate team sport. It requires the most unity. And all this selfish kid and his peers are doing is dividing the team, because…..Colin Kaepernick told them to.

And according to the Worcester Public Schools rule book, the school and coaching staff would be well within their rights legally to sit this kid down for pulling this stunt:

Participating in clubs and activities is a privilege, not a right. That’s all you need to know. This kid signed the student handbook. He agreed to these rules.

“Students are required to good citizenship” at school events. Students who don’t meet these rules can be suspended by administration as they see fit. End of story. The kid went out of his way to let the world know that he would not respect a flag because that flag represents a racist and oppressive government. That’s the exact opposite of good citizenship.

Also notice that the students removal is “not subject to procedural requirements” under Mass general law. In other words, there is no hearing or meeting required. You can suspend a kid from an extracurricular activity pretty easily. Whether or not you agree with that is irrelevant. It’s in the handbook and the kid signed it. He agreed to these terms. So all you wannabe lawyers out there whining about the constitution can have a coke and a smile and shut the fuck up, because you literally have no idea what you’re talking about.

    Has anyone heard from the SJW\Holy Cross professor lately? Is she still driving by DMHS from her safe space home on the west side? The boy from the football time is simply misguided in his actions. On the other hand Associate Professor Weiner is an embarrassment to her position, her employer, her family, the students in her classes and dare I say herself?

    What the hell is wrong with protest, as long as the kids are informed and have an understanding about the subject? This kid is kneeling during the anthem, not egging a police car.
    Maybe as adults we need to learn tolerance and critical thinking?

      Nah – let’s tear ’em apart via their social media postings, make stupid assumptions about ‘internet privacy’ (cause we never ever did anything stoopid ever), and behave like 14 year old dipshits. And don’t forget to show off your American Flag tattoo and stand Eyes Front every time anyone even hums the National Anthem! Way more fun than this thing you call ‘thinking’…

      Did the kid seem informed and understanding about the subject? No. He was just copying an NFL player.

      How is this kid opressed? Is he not getting a FREE education courtesy of the taxpayers? Is he being prevented from his own pursuit of happiness by not being allowed to play a sport he enjoys? Does he have a roof over his head and way, way, way more freedoms by way of life and liberty than a kid in ANY other nation on Earth? The United States is not perfect, but its the only country founded on an IDEA. Therefore, it’s the greatest nation ever formed.

    It’s obvious that these kids have not been American History nor have they taken any courses in Civics. If they do not have the common decency to stand for the National Anthem then they should not participate in any extra curricula activities. It’s a privilege to represent your school on an athletic team and they should act accordingly.

      They don’t TEACH Civics any longer. That’s the problem. Well, one of the problems.

    For the last 22 years I have played in the DMHS golf tournament. Over the years the money raised has help send kids to football camps they can’t afford. They have also paid for equipment the schools can’t provide, buses to games and other things. If half the team takes a knee during the national anthem I will no longer be able to support this team and I will encourage others to do the same. Mr Oppong and his friends need to realize that their actions have consequences

      Please call both the schools principal and the superintendents office to inform them of your decision

    They should disband the football team to give these fine youth more time for protesting.

    Hey, i guess if you can’t get attention because you are good enough on the field, why not find that attention some other way.

    As diva posted above, its a publicity stunt.

    Publicity (n.) the notice or attention given to someone or something by the media.

    Stop giving the attention whores what they want!

    Ok- let’s call this what it is- a publicity stunt! And guess what? It’s working. Too bad it’s for all the wrong reasons. Half of those players have no idea what they are protesting.. Maybe they should do community service at a veterans hospital for a day and then reconsider their positions. These kids are spoiled brats who have no idea of sacrifice or racial inequality. Grow up!

      Maybe they should spend time in some of these inner city neighborhoods and see how so many of these people sit around with no respect for anyone collecting their fucking welfare checks and laugh at the white liberals who are too chicken shit to call them out.. Cops are killing POS’s that happen to be black not respectful good people of color.

      That part of the handbook will be removed shortly. Since kids are craving negative attention, watch what happens with every other Inter-high team this and coming weeks, since they now know they’ll be no punnishment. However nothing is stopping the coach from a good benching. ” You like to sit? Have a seat ON THE BENCH!”
