Mayor misses the point, adds to division
The La Plata mayor misses the problem and adds to the division.
Colin Kaepernick and Nike’s target demographic group do not seem to understand what they want to accomplish. Wannabes just want to be noticed and be like Colin, but they don’t do anything to improve the root problem. You can’t just demonstrate you don’t like the USA or law enforcement in your communities. You just fuel the hatred and division in the country. Try doing something constructive.
President Obama ignored his opportunity for greatness by healing the country’s division. Colin may have been demonstrating his displeasure with both presidential candidates (like most of the country). However, his demonstration has escalated to a bigger division. We now have a large group of young people who will never understand patriotism or serve their country.
In my younger years we were proud to be patriotic. What happened to love of countr y? I’m in my upper eighties and don’t like the hatred for the country. My father, uncles, brother, myself, cousins, son and grandsons all ser ved, and I’m disappointed with these hateful demonstrators. James Hill, Welcome
