National Anthem

So as many of you know, there have been many celebrities that have been kneeling and protesting in the name of black lives... But how many of them really even care about black lives beyond the spotlight received from rebeliousness? Recently I watched a video of the rapper Eminem preaching his hate for president Trump, calling for his fans to "pick a side". This had my gears turning on how much these rich multi-million dollar celebs REALLY care about much beyond media coverage... do they care about any of us.. including black lives... or is there another agenda? If they do... why haven't many of them taken their millions that they have shoved so far up their behinds and ever even donated to a black charity... or any charity for that matter. Why don't they actually help black lives rather than stirring the pot and causing further division? A valid question, I'd like to hear all of your thoughts on this matter.

Right, it seems all about propaganda and division, all words but no action.

Bingo! kind of... Everyone wants to solve problems with the wrong actions. Spot light actions, which cause more conflict and harm then good. They could be using their resources to make a point and a change, but instead, they'd rather make everyone crazy.

@Mr_Anomaly But it doesn't take a great mind to realize these spotlight actions don't really work.

I agree! Peoples desires to be in the spotlight right now are far surpassing the will to honor ones country. In my opinion, it is shameful. People have the freedom to protest... but why in that way, when the best way to protest is to unite, people are deciding to increase the strength of the divide.

I think they are just doing it to be "trendy." Eminem doesn't care about black lives. Eminem is no better than Trump. I mean, this is the same fool who raps about raping and killing women...including his own mother. Eminem's rapped about far worse stuff than anything Trump has ever said. He's a big phony. Same with the football players. Now they are just protesting against Trump. It has nothing to do with black lives mattering. Maybe it originally did when one guy was doing it. Now they've just all jumped on the bandwagon. These people are millionaires and have no clue what life is like for the average Joe.

It's as if they even forgot what they were protesting for and now it's become a sick twisted joke lol. It's just become an anti-trump thing haha.

@Mr_Anomaly , people I know personally have decided to boycott the NFL by not ever watching the games and that is because they think the players are just rich jocks who want to make a name for themselves.
