Jesus knelt as part of the suffering and struggle He endured at Gethsemane on the eve of his crucifixion, with his posture serving as a sign of anguish as well as a mark of his true faithfulness. Other New Testament stories describe people who kneel before Jesus in supplication or lament. Their act of submission signals their faith that healing will come and their prayers will be answered. Kneeling as a sign of faith or lament is echoed outside religious contexts. We see someone kneeling when proposing marriage, as a gesture of love and devotion. It is also a sign of supplication, a plea for a new and deeper kind of relationship. We kneel because we honor the lives that were lost and we are faithful the God will be in the midst of the social reform we hope for! . . . . . . . . . . #westandwithkaepernick #therightsideofhistory #takeaknee #humanrights #citizenoftheyear #imwithkap #mycausemycleats #kaepernick #standforwhatyoubelievein #Manoftheyear #wekneelwithkaepernick #lovewins #respect #equalrightsforall #NFL #alllivesmatter #blacklivesmatter #vetsforkaepernick #Stoppolicebrutality #colinkaepernick #Teamkaepernick #BLM #proud #fortheculture #powertothepeople #stopracism #wekneeltheykill #hamptonroads

As a Naval Officer who has served in Pearl Harbor, the #pearlharbor memorial stuff is always pretty intense for me. You start imagining that happening on your own ship, seeing your friends and shipmates die, heroism, desperation, explosions, etc. You know what would really suck? Being trapped in a damaged compartment and drowning. I’ve cried at that museum a few times. And all the years I’ve lived in Hawai‘i, I’ve always missed the Pearl Harbor anniversary events. I was pissed last year that I was away on travel and that the admiral, in uniform, representing the US government, used his comments memorializing the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor to criticize private citizens expressing their constitutionally protected right to free speech ( #vetsforkaepernick). BUT, this year I finally wandered over on my lunch break and had a long and awesome conversation with a guy who was in the bowels of USS TENNESSEE (BB-43) that day, moored right in front of ARIZONA, and who later dodged death again when his transfer to a submarine that was lost at sea didn’t go through. He and the other boilermen got that ship ready to get underway, but they were trapped by the sunken WEST VIRGINIA. There are less of these dudes every year. And also today, one of the last survivors of the ARIZONA was laid to rest with his shipmates, interred aboard the sunken hulk (though I missed all the actual ceremony and memorial events).
♻️ @captainplanetmf ♻️ @rextacular - The false narrative of Blacks being savages has been going on for centuries and the so-called justice system is playing right along with the orchestra filled with wypipo globally. There's been a war against the seeds of Africa since the Europeans "discovered" the continent & wypipo have allied with each other, but at some point & time change has to take place. The coldest part of it all is they've been able to enlist OUR own to do their dirty work: Crips vs Bloods, African warlords killing off OURS, dope dealers, Gandhi, and on & on. Hell, they even used the Natives in amerikkka...all the way up until those people put their differences aside to unite against the common enemy. #message ✊✊✊ @kaepernick7 keep doing what you do....you're a hero! #vetsforkaepernick colinkaepernick marshawnlynch michaelbennett jessewilliams #blacklivesmatter #brownlivesmatter notmypresident notmypres notmyprez #oneblackfriend #rextezinowins #rextacular #goodnoose #equalbutseparate #slavericans #moors #blacksareafrican #africans #blackwomen #blackmen #blackisbeautiful #blackisthenewblack #melanin #blackpeople #blacks #latinos #blacksandlatinos #nativeamericans  #poc #samestruggle #betheinfluence #africanamericans #hispanics #sharethis @el_philthmoor
@Regranned from @rextacular - Firing dude won't have any serious negative impact on his life tho. Hell, there's a racist hiring manager or two that probably reached out to him for an employment opportunity. Remember Black people: whenever wypipo have a negative opinion about another race...they more than likely, 99.999% of the time [totally made up, but probably accurate statistic,] hate your Black a$$ too. #itsokaytobewhite @kaepernick7 keep doing what you do....you're a hero! #vetsforkaepernick colinkaepernick marshawnlynch michaelbennett jessewilliams @raylewis can consume a penis! #blacklivesmatter #brownlivesmatter notmypresident notmypres notmyprez #oneblackfriend #rextezinowins #rextacular #goodnoose #equalbutseparate #slavericans #moors #blacksareafrican #africans #blackwomen #blackmen #blackisbeautiful #blackisthenewblack #melanin #blackpeople #blacks #latinos #blacksandlatinos #nativeamericans  #poc #samestruggle #betheinfluence #africanamericans #hispanics #sharethis because #youarethemedia
🐸☕️ I have a feeling I'm gonna be waiting for a long time... here's my two cents⬇️ I stopped (voluntarily) standing for or reciting the Pledge of Allegiance several years ago, when I realized that it was all a fucking lie. This nation sure as hell has never even attempted to pretend to provide "liberty" nor "justice" for *ALL*. Not even close. You tell me to "respect" the flag? Call me when it starts respecting me. Do you people really have more compassion for a stripey piece of cloth that's supposed to represent this country (keyword: country; not just the troops🙄) than you do for the people that actually fucking live here?? Don't expect me to kiss the feet of a country that just recently started acknowledging that I am, in fact, a human being. And nobody dare call me "unpatriotic" or "Un-American" because I'm not conforming to the narrow-ass definition of what a "patriot" or "true/real American" is (though we never were included in that, either). I'll (willingly) stand for the flag once more when we are treated like full citizens in the land that we (and everyone else) helped build.
So, let me get something straight: Donald Trump beefed with a Muslim Gold Star family whose son died in combat, roasted John McCain for getting captured, made a black military widow cry when he was supposed to "comfort" her, insulted Native code talkers who had helped in WW2, lied about Obama contacting Gold Star families, lied about himself reaching out to Gold Star families, hasn't done shit to help veterans, claimed "bone spurs" to wriggle out of service, and constantly uses the military as a shield to deflect criticism... 😒😒😒 #RespectVeterans... Unless they are not white (or are a political enemy). #AmeriKKKa #hypocrite #hypocrites #hypocrisy #standfortheflag #standfortheanthem #takeaknee #taketheknee #imwithkap #istandwithkaepernick #vetsforkaepernick
Couldn't be more proud to support @kaepernick7 who is so incredibly deserving! ✊❤✊❤✊ . . Regran @msbone73 Colin Kaepernick made his truth known when he first decided not to stand for the national anthem. He had a lot of football left to play and a lot more money to make when he made his decision. It was late August, 2016. People who were anonymous in life had become famous in death. Philando Castile. Eric Garner​. Alton Sterling. Freddie Gray. They were tragic symbols of a society that had taken a terribly wrong turn. As the anthem played ahead of the 49ers' preseason game against the Texans, Kaepernick, San Francisco's 28-year-old quarterback at the time, quietly took a seat on the bench. It took two weeks for anyone from the media to ask him about it. Kaepernick explained that he was making a statement about inequality and social justice, about the ways this country “oppresses black people and people of color.” "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way,” he added. “There are bodies in the street,” he said then, “and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.” In the last 16 months, Kaepernick’s truth has been twisted, distorted and used for political gain. It has cost him at least a year of his NFL career and the income that should have come with it. But still, it is his truth. He has not wavered from it. He does not regret speaking it. He has caused millions of people to examine it. And, quietly, he has donated nearly a million dollars to support it. #takeaknee #VetsForKaepernick #supportblackownedbusinesses #StopPoliceBrutality @yourrightscamp @kaepernick7 #BoycottNFLSponsors @boycottnfl2017 #strengthinnumbers

@Regranned from @msbone73 - Thank You for your Service and Sacrifices!!! #takeaknee @Regranned from @biasedmediagrp - Thank you for your service! #Repost @sing_83 ・・・ kneel nēl/ verb: be in or assume a position in which the body is supported by a knee or the knees, as when praying or showing submission. "they knelt down and prayed" "I promise to support and defend the constitution of the United States..." Today is a day in which we recognize those veterans who have and are currently serving. One thing we all have in common is that no matter what branch of service we served, we all took the same oath to protect and serve the American People. These are very trying times that I never thought that I would have conversations about with my children when it comes to race. These are stories I heard passed down by my parents and the times they went through. Though progress has been achieved, we yet have a way to go. There is no greater country than that of our United States. America has been and will always​ be great, rather than defending our patriotism let us listen and try to understand one another and continue living as the land of the free and home of the brave! As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them -JFK #HappyVeteransDay #ThankAVet #ThankYouForYourService #OneTeamOneFight #AirForce #VetsForKaepernick #ItWasNeverAboutTheFlag #TakeAKnee - #regrann - #regrann

#LavenaJohnson baby girl we haven’t forgotten about you! We need answers #Repost @therealremyredd ・・・ The Department of Defense statistics are alarming -- one in three women who join the US military will be sexually assaulted or raped by men in the military. The warnings to women should begin above the doors of the military recruiting stations, as that is where assaults on women in the military begins -- before they are even recruited. But, now, even more alarming, are deaths of women soldiers in Iraq, and in the United States, following rape. The military has characterized each of the deaths of women who were first sexually assaulted as deaths from "non-combat related injuries," and then added "suicide." Yet, the families of the women whom the military has declared to have committed suicide, strongly dispute the findings and are calling for further investigations into the deaths of their daughters. Specific US Army units and certain US military bases in Iraq have an inordinate number of women soldiers who have died of "non-combat related injuries," with several identified as "suicides." 19-year-old US Army Private #LavenaJohnson, was found dead on the military base in Balad, Iraq in July, 2005 and her death characterized by the US Army to be suicide as a self-inflicted M-16 shot. On April 9, 2008, Dr. John Johnson and his wife Linda, parents of Private Johnson, flew from their home in St. Louis for meetings with US Congress members and their staffs. They were in Washington to ask that Congressional hearings be conducted on the Army's investigation into the death of their daughter, an investigation that classified her death as a suicide despite extensive evidence suggesting she was murdered. #VeteransOfAmerica #VetsForKaepernick #veteran #USveterans #military #America #USNavy #nationalanthem #BoycottTheNFL #SocialInequality   #boycottnfl   #BlackLivesMatter   #NFL #Football #lebronjames   #policereform #stephencurry #trump #donaldtrump #MLB #NBA #therealremyredd #blackmedia@crackedrosecoloredglasses_us
