    Only if he doesn't care if people have any respect for him.

    The good old ‘we value diversity so long as it’s our diversity’ trick.

    One of our standards is to embrace diversity and be purposefully inclusive, which cannot occur when ideas or perspectives are rejected because they are different. I can and do respect and empathize with the frustration others feel right now. That doesn’t mean I believe there’s only one solution to any of this. It also doesn’t mean I have my own frustrations with government, that my frustrations are just as important to me, and that I’d like to have that same empathy and respect from others though.

    I sat on a D&I panel for leaders about two years ago, where the panelists were asked to describe how,
    given random strangers, they perceived those others saw them vs how they wanted to be perceived. Almost every panelist responded along the lines of “others see me as a color/sex”and wanted to be seen as mother/father/successful/leader, etc.

    My response was I think other see me as just a person and thats how I want them to see me. I used that to open up a conversation with the other panelists and audience about unconscious biases and how one can be their own worst enemy when it comes to embracing diversity and being purposefully inclusive and how life experiences, political beliefs, etc influence you to be a hammer and only see nails.

    Lots of good conversations came out of that challenge.

    The only opinion allowed today is appeasement. As long as you are not white, who depends on the day.
    Ain't that the truth.

    If we can kneel during the anthem at football games, can we play football at funerals now?

    Athletes have as much credibility with making political statements as say a singer or some other entertainer does - that's to say...none.

    Shut up and entertain, your politics mean absolutely nothing to me.

    I wouldn’t mind seeing the NFL have the same kind of season as the MLB & NBA.

    One of the few positives about the beer flu is these folks sitting at home realizing their insignificance in the world.

    Haven't watched the NFL since the owners decided to capitulate to virtue signalling. In my opinion, if you apologize for what you think is right, you're no better. If you don't have the guts to stick up for what you believe, then keep your mouth shut.
