Do an of you remember the Dred Scott and what it meant for this country?
Abraham Lincoln wasn't fooled. He understood it perfectly.
Here's a quote from a speech he gave in direct response to the Dred Scott decision:
..." to  be sure, it would be a considerable backing down by Judge Douglas from his much vaunted doctrine of self-government for the territories; but this is only additional proof of what was very plain from the beginning, that that doctrine was a mere deceitful pretense for the benefit of slavery...."

This day Sept 15 1963, the Birmingham Church was bombed killing four black girls. Let's fill in some more history and pay homage to what happened that fateful day.

Did you know there were six people that died that day?

Who is Sarah Jean Collins? Why is her story important for that day?

Let's deal with this head on. Here's the untold story about the national anthem. And here's a part of the story Colin Kaepernick is show casing.
The entire irony of those criticisms about Kaepernick exercising his freedom of expression coming from those who claim to be patriots is laughable at best.  The argument that blood was spilled for this constitution and country out one side of their mouths and the venom spouted because a person actually uses that right, is sheer unmitigated hypocrisy. 
But then again its always been the last refuge of a scoundrel to wrap himself in the flag with zero understanding of the meaning.

Seems that Sanford Fl has a history of deadly racism before the murder of Travon Martin.

The story of the Peekskill NY riots. As with many riots, it was the white community that participated in it, ginned up and foster by the white false media, (sound familiar?) and with little to no interference from the police.

The riots that prevented Paul Robeson from singing:
