I am sick to death of white privileged Americans who feel compelled to raise a ruckus over non-violent protests regarding the lack of freedoms that other Americans do not universally enjoy.
Where is John Koster’s outrage (“Fans’ responses divided over NFL players’ anthem demonstrations,” Oct. 1 Herald) over the inequality and lack of justice that many Americans experience? Where is his outrage over the hundreds of hate groups in America? What comments did he feel compelled to speak out about when Michael Bennett was inhumanely tackled by police for “running while black”?
As a white privileged woman I find Koster’s and others’ negative attitudes infuriating and sad. Why is empathy often such a rare quality among human beings unless and until we find ourselves in a similar situation?
