Wrong about US constitution, ignorant about history

Re: “US ‘anti-racism’ protests are attacking foundation of racial equality”, Have Your Say, yesterday. 

JC Wilcox seems to inhabit an offensive world of his own making. As usual his argument starts with blatant falsehoods and warped assumptions, and goes downhill from there. He says that black (not white, we notice) players taking the knee insulted the US constitution. No they did not. Get your facts straight, Mr Wilcox. They were peacefully protesting against injustice, as is their right under the same constitution. His crude comments about their lifestyles ignores the fact that they were born from slavery, something they have no control over.

Time that you woke up Wilcox, not innocent protesters.
