#StopMakingExcuses

Excuses…
The tools of the cowards
I can’t stand for this issue because xyz
Making excuses as if movements don’t happen in numbers
The front line surely isn’t for everyone but does that mean silence is the answer?
Surely not
The world needs Black people
The economy needs Black people
We allow others to be a martyr for our cause but don’t back them up
This is bigger than Colin Kaepernick
Bigger than your season tickets or NFL League Pass you purchased on television
For the people giving big names excuses for not stepping up
Where do you stand?
Or does the white man got your tongue?
He cut your legs off by your knees?
The knees Kaepernick bent to try and make a better place for you and I?
The sacrifices he knowingly and unknowingly brought upon himself for equality
You can’t expect all these people to take a stand, they have a family
What good is raising a brown family when your innocent son or daughter can be shot in cold blood without the appropriate consequences
We wait, we feel disconnected when the Sandra Bland is not our family member or friend
We wait…
We feel disconnected when the John Crawford III isn’t our family member or friend
When will the sacrifice be seen as more than money and less about just feeling uncomfortable?
Us boycotting the NFL won’t make a change
Worried about making money in fantasy drafts …
Living in a fantasy world where your life is worth less than a dog
Really sit and think about the impact we can make
The power of word of mouth and the stance we all need to take
Stop making excuses it won’t get us nowhere
If there’s no signing of Colin Kaepernick then I don’t care
So many Black players, no Black owners
Slavery at it’s finest
They control the money, so we feel they “own” us
