I really wish that Texas would secede from the union,and then kick everyone that isn't a Native Texan out of the state the very next day.

Let's just start everything over!
I agree with Texas seceeding; however, I'd argue that although I (and many, many others) am not a native Texan, I am the kind of citizen you'd want in 'your' state compared to many native Texans who give two s#its about the principles of freedom and liberty.

I didn't know there was a black nation. I thought a nation was a place and didn't depend on the color of peoples skin.

They can play what they want, I stopped watching NFL a few years ago. When businesses and especially their employees publicly weigh in on political or social issues then they should expect positive AND negative feedback from the consumer. Every company I've worked would have terminated me for openly expressing my views on company time or as a representative for that company.

Athletes and actors exist for my entertainment. Once they go beyond being an entertainer, I lose interest.

I could see this happening 100 years or so ago but now days it would be more like a Lil wayne or Drake song. Becoming less and less a fan of big time sports. I really don't care, just seems like an attention and money grab tactic.
After 20+ years of playing fantasy football, and longer following the league, I’m done.

This is a sport where:
70% of the league is black.
Players get 48% of league profits.
Minimum salary is $500k.
...with the gall to lecture me on racial injustice.
