Drew Brees back tracked because of pressure from his athletic friends. Caucasians have to be secret in their true feelings because if they openly say anything it's racist.
Drew does not work for the president... Drew doesn't fear harassing tweets from a guy hiding behind a fence or ppl who want to get in his head to chastise him for being a man and recognizing he made a mistake in how he said what he said. Takes courage and guts for a leader to apologize in public to his men and not do it behind closed doors ... If Drew has re evaluated his choices because his values dictate he follow his heart and consciousness OK doesn't mean he green lights kneeling at the playing of the anthem for himself nor does it mean he is offended by others choosing to kneel..nor that either choice is on purpose to ignore truths and tragedies . It's for him maybe just as respectful to stand focused cause that's how he respects not just the flag but all who have died to give drew opportunities... And that includes black lives..... Equally... He is just following his personal convictions just as those who kneel are following theirs.. Maybe for him being white to now kneel is like him kneeling on a neck... Pretending to be who he is not... He kneals in huddles often what's that tell u not cause he is thinking bout it but because he knows he is only as good as the team that surround him... And it focuses them to become one team.. Leaders are not perfect and great leaders are unafraid to adapt overcome and reflect upon what it is that can make them not just great leaders but good men or women consistently... That drew apologized demonstrated he is listening... Adapting reevaluating and making choices that reflect his values and ethics both on and off the field........ It's called personal growth.. Not reactionary tribalism....... If the president thinks he can bully tweet drew and destroy his career or make him miserable and that's gonna widen his base... Well again the emperor continues to wander about behind the fence naked and afraid......... The public knows his shtick...... Pick a fight distract get reactions shred constitution a little more tweet golf tan eat sleep repeat... The movie is the same fox rerun...... Twitter never asked to be ur official news outlet on line... Or to for u to use em for white house announcements...... Like hiring and firings and replacements for press briefings... U like any other user n consumer of Twitter are subject to its private platform terms and conditions.... It's not censorship its that box u checked on term and agreement clause without reading it...... N u know it... The user agreement contract between business and consumer.. ... Didn't u learn about business law at wharton... Damn that school standards must be going down.... If u didn't sure ur buddy mark at twoface book can splain it to u...
Who is he to tell dree Brees and American citizen to not back down... Mr Brees makes choices based on his values and he reflects on his choices and like any real leader is is unafraid to grow and change and even apologize... Real men and true leaders reveal greater strength thru compassion and empathy for those they lead and with respect to their social consciousness.......mr Brees isn't your tool... Mr Brees is the captain of one fine team and he is a role model for thousands n thousands of kids who know character and integrity sportsmanship and courage and ethics in action on and off field... Something that's not displayed by a man who squanders the greatest power in the world to provide hope every where... Far far beyond some cult that yokes to their every cruel action and word..... Sacrificed nothing for anyone or cause... Start packing come Nov tome to exit the white house you have disgraced
