Who is thinking up this absurd crap, that somehow two letters on a sticker tell us whom it represents?....

If that was negotiated someone got screwed. Royally.

I'm not totally against this idea. If a white player puts a decal of a white person shot by a black policeman how will that be perceived? Or is that not part of the discussion?

Perhaps we could also advertise churches on the helmet as well.

As long as we have football I don't care what's on the helmets or uniforms.

Wow. The NFL is so brave. Can a player put H.K. on their helmet for Hong Kong? Asking for Lebron and the NBA.

They're wearing helmets in the NBA now? Cool.

All of the things we do EXCEPT actually doing something to address/fix the problem. Admitting a problem is cool. Acknowledging there's a problem is good. One could argue it's a start. One could argue it's part of the process. One could argue it's progress. But, kneeling, black anthems, stickers, and painting streets just seems like meaningless placating to me. It could also just be my frustration at nothing real getting done to address the problem. A problem some refuse to even see as a problem. Equal rights. Police reform. Accountability. It's really not that hard.

It needs to be renamed Ex-con lives matter! People who obey the law don't normally get into confrontations with police.

This isn't necessarily true. Cops think they are above the law and harass people on a daily basis for whatever reason they want. The age of cell phones has shown that. It has to get boring quite a bit being a cop. They will look for any reason to find someone suspicious.
