CHH Community Comments On NFL Protests

On Sunday, social media exposed the division that is in the United States Of America.

After comments from President Donald Trump and NFL players protesting racism/racial discrimination/police brutality (by kneeling during the national anthem), people have developed fiery opinions on the NFL situation (whether or not players kneeling during the anthem is justified). Many are taking sides and disrespecting those with opposing views. It might be safe to say that America is culturally in a mess right now. Unity is needed.

Racism and police brutality is reality and serious topics that need to be addressed in the USA. The NFL protests started with then-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2016. Last year, he would take a knee during the Star-Spangled Banner to bring attention to racial discrimination. Kaepernick, who is considered a good football player, doesn’t have a job now. Many support the protests. At the same time, many feel that kneeling during the national anthem is disrespectful to the USA as a country (its flag) and fallen soldiers. Trump didn’t help with the tension when he called NFL players “Sons of b******” for peacefully protesting. This debate doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Some of the major hip-hop artists within the CHH (Christian Hip-Hop) community chimed in on the NFL protests on social media. Check out some of their comments below (Research further.)

    I wonder how many of these CHH artist’s would be all for protesting, if there were people protesting God or the church being tax exempt during the middle of their praise and worship service at their church. The Bible says there is a time and place for everything. As Christians we don’t disrespect one thing to promote another. We are called to be ambassadors for Christ. I wonder if some of these artist’s actually understand what is the real call of a Christian. The 1 Corinthians 10:23 says “I have the right to do anything,” you say–but not everything is
    beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”–but not everything is
    constructive. There are real fights out there and until Christians stand up for truth, nothing will ever change.
