Colin Kaepernick tells CBS he'll stand for anthem if given chance to play again

I guess "oppression of black people" is no longer bigger than football.

obv i know this isnít the case anywhere, but cost is definitely region based. i bet you pay out the ****ing ass for rent in big cities in California. does that suck? hell yeah it does. is paying everybody 5 dollars more an hour gonna fix it? no chance.
Don't wish to be pendantic (yes I do) but you obviously meant "not the case everywhere". I only point it out because taking it as you wrote it completely changes the sentiment of your sentence.

So you're mad that workers have to live under the poverty line so people who make money through glorified gambling can live like Kings right?

you're twisting my words a bit. you play with the hand you're dealt. i have a ton of sympathy for people who do everything they can to make things work and still can't figure out a way to make it happen. fortunately, in the area i live it is rather easy to make a good living without much else than a strong work ethic. i have very little sympathy for people who would rather spend their time whining about not having enough money than trying to go out there and change it.

i guess the bottom line for me is, i would love to see everyone make enough money to survive on, but from where I'm looking (again, obv very different than your guys' situations) I also want people to be paid according to their value and commitment and not just for showing up and doing a half-assed job.

obviously capitalism throws a wrench into this whole concept because you have people being born into incredibly wealthy families and not having to do anything for it, but chances are that's a result of someone in their bloodline busting their ass to try and give them that opportunity.

is their a system like family allowance in the US like there is here? the government should step in for the single mother obv. the batlord? **** him.

btw i'm not advocating that family allowance fixes these problems, the system (here at least) needs to be reworked in a major way.
