Mistaking a victory sign for a middle finger.

America is an ongoing project that is slowly heading in the right direction and I love that. One of our problems in our country is the relationship between Blacks & cops. With that said, I also have some problems with Black Lives Matters, as do others. When athletes took the knee, I respected it, but felt conflicted. I’ve seen serious change in our life and steady improvement in race relations. Frankly I didn’t even notice the knee gesture, until Trump politicized it & it ceased to be an act of support for Black Lives Matters & became a protest against a crazy guy — who I think is unfit for office. The sad part is this gesture of respect for a country that I still believe in, has turned into a gesture against a nutcase.
