    Here are some great choices I would dig seeing:


    Geronimo


    Sitting Bull


    Tecumseh

    Just to name a few American heroes.

    Oh, and another bill you can't go wrong with!

    African American/Native American money combined! Yeah, baby!

    Do you at least tell the cashiers why you break 20$ sometimes?
    No I don't tell the cashier's why unless they ask which happened twice and I did explain briefly and they looked at me all baffled..  And you have to be paying in $50s or $100s to get $20 change, so doesn't happen often.  Use plastic card all the time now anyway. I pretty much don't worry about it anymore.  So you are correct I was wasting my time with that.    I'm a weak protester I guess, I do/did it for my friends and the genocide that Andrew Jackson presided over.. I've answered your questions, now you answer mine. What public protests have you engaged in to spearhead change that resulted in big change?
    Bumper sticker politics?  Do you wear a t-shirt that says something on it? What what tell me what you do so I can learn from the best.
    It's funny, you started off today by saying it was the silliest most ineffective protest you could think of.
    Then I told you to take it up with the Native Americans who do that.  And then you spin it back about my inabilities.  I'm wasting my time with this.
    This Bud's for you.



    what you are not understanding is no one is judging anyone for not protesting. we're simply stating that you didn't protest when you claimed you did. so whether pj soul or any of us disagreeing with you have ever protested or not is irrelevant. no one is judging those that don't protest. just stating our opinion that your protest (which you admitted not long ago wasn't actually a protest, so not sure why you are still harping on this) isn't a protest since it won't affect change. 

    stop internalizing everything. sheesh.

    Didn't know where else to put this but found it interesting. Backwards thinking.

    It’s essentially how trump got elected. A general statement of “I’m not racist but how much do minorities want?” Captures a lot of trump voters. The whites a victims myth.

    The tide is turning. According to a recent survey, now slightly more Americans believe that the players are doing the right thing by protesting during the anthem, and that the organizations should not force them to stand

    Funny how those who howl the loudest about respecting the anthem and the flag are totally fine when they are the ones "disrespecting" those symbols.

    Tomi Lahren wears the american flag for Halloween.

    she's as stupid as they come. I've said it before and I'll say it again: if she didn't have a pretty face, she'd be nowhere on tv. she's pretty and courts controversy, exactly what that idiot network likes.

    I don't think it will happen, but nice to see it won't be censored if it does.

    Surprising that they said they would not block it out.

    Maybe not. Blocking it would cause more controversy than not blocking it.
