Should we all 'take the knee' when appropriate?

Why do so many people feel obliged to 'take the knee' when it's clearly become a form of moral blackmail.
''IF YOU DON'T TAKE THE KNEE'' YOU'RE A RACIST AND HATE BLACK PEOPLE,SEEMS TO BE THE MESSAGE.

I can respect people without getting down on one knee.

I will 'take the knee' in a Roman Catholic Church to show my respect for the Lord Almighty but not for another human being, regardless of colour or title, i.e., King or Queen.

Anyone who looks outside themselves for value is incapable of thoroughgoing respect. Your 'respect' will always be borne through proxy, indirect and superficial.

What a stupid thing to say. We all look outside ourselves for value and the problem with working to achieve the opposite is that we aren't the most impartial judges when it comes to our own character.

For example, we might not see the hypocrisy of say, lecturing somebody for having alt accounts while we also have alt accounts ourselves.

Weak minded people are not prepared to question the humiliating practice of getting down on their knees to show subservience to a figment of their imagination.

Let those who do not wish to get down on their knees develop a backbone to display their respect for themselves. No gods, no masters.

How do you reconcile agreeing with Kaepernick and loving your country?

Hello Jace:

The FIRST thing I love about my country are the rights granted to us in the Constitution.. I thought right wingers loved the Constitution... No, huh?

Here's how the 1st Amendment reads: "Congress shall make NO LAW respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech.."

See the part where it says we have freedom of speech? And please note that it says congress shall make NO LAW abridging that freedom..

What part of that don't you understand?

Well, loving only people who bend the knee to the leftist, draconian state isn't really "loving your country. It's loving the anti American concepts of people who hate your country.

What? Don't YOU bend your knee when the KKK marches by?

I've rarely seen overtly racist Conservatives, but when I have, they turned out to be Obama voters who attended Occupy Wallstreet, or Jussie Smollett's imaginary white supremacists that exist so much that leftists have to fake their existence through fake attacks...

Oh, and this crap too while you're busy spinning yarns and focusing on the nonexistent right that CNN told you actually exists that the real right has never seen or met....

The racist right wing exists so much that the KKK is endorsing the left because the right "isn't racist enough", and only Donald Trump can pass prison reform. Isn't that a daisy?...

Weak minded people are not prepared to question the humiliating practice of getting down on one to show solidarity with blacks who, quite rightly are deeply aggrieved at so many of their number being killed by police officers.

Let those who do not wish to get down on one knee develop a sign of their own to display their respect for the feelings of their black brothers.

ROFLMAO black people do not own taking the knee and white people do not need symbolic gestures specific to their race. Even for a white supremacist, this is taking 'separate but equal' beyond the point of stupidity.

A strong minded person does not draw upon narratives outside of themselves (i.e. race) in order to justify their worth. Their strength is their own and their worth is inherent to them; consequently, they cannot know humiliation. Your concern here is trivial and a mark of weakness itself.

It's disappointing, but also amusing to note that the benighted twits on this site have failed miserably in being able to express their opinion on the subject matter.

Instead they have slavishly gone down their predictable route of engaging in personal attacks on the debate creator and each other, two of whom are one of the same.

It is such a pitiful state that there are so few left on CD with the desire or ability to debate rationally and objectively but, just as pigs enjoy rolling around in their own shit so the low-lives on here can only get their kicks by wallowing in the intellectual gutter preoccupied with their burning desire of trying to degrade each other.

Man, man oh man.
