Please tell me something. Do you read the posts here daily?


Have you ever seen someone make a post where they are making comments that would lead you to believe they favor white kids over black kids? I see posts where people are excited about the athletes accomplishments and successes and color never comes into the discussion. Did you see this board and how excited they were Zay had a TD catch last week? Yes, black lives matter but so do other lives as well. Until we stop dividing ourselves with such rhetoric we will always be divided. I long for the day when we are all Americans and not black Americans or Hispanic Americans or Caucasian Americans. If you are an American you are an American. Period. Any subtitles are divisive. We are all in this together and these organizations pick out the weak and separate them for political and monetary gain. The people that post here are sending in money for all of the kids to have athletic scholarships. The demographics on the team seem to indicate this crowd doesn't need a blm sticker on a helmet to tell them black lives matter. We support the Pirates. If the players want to be political activists when they are off the field they have that right as American citizens. It's not that difficult to understand.
