NAACP: Jerry Jones' anthem comments are 'tone-deaf,' violate Cowboys' constitutional rights
[link to sportsday.dallasnews.com (secure)]


The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) issued a response to Jerry Jones on Tuesday after the Cowboys owner said he'd sit players who don't stand for the national anthem.

"This is not an issue about our flag, this is an issue about police brutality, racism, and the ability of members of the NFL whose communities are disproportionately impacted by police misconduct to peacefully say enough," said NAACP interim President and CEO Derrick Johnson. "This is not simply a Black issue due to the number of white people also killed by police, but we know historically that when justice occurs for African Americans, all other members of our society benefit as well."
Jones was the first NFL owner to declare that players will be disciplined for protesting during the anthem when he did so Sunday after the Cowboys' loss to the Green Bay Packers. He said Tuesday that his intention is to remove the Cowboys from the debate.


"I want them [the players] to have the ammunition to tell anybody that asks them to do anything otherwise or demonstrate during that period of time, that 'I don't get to play if I do that,'" Jones said. "This is a workplace issue. I don't want there to be any misunderstanding as to where I want the personnel of the Cowboys to be when we're at the No. 1 workplace we have, which is the field and the sideline on gameday. I want to do everybody a service, as I should in leading the team, and let's be really clear about what our expectations are."
The NAACP's senior director of corporate affairs said Jones not only is being insensitive toward his players, but also he's violating their constitutional rights.

Somebody should tell that group of snowflakes that Jerry isn't preventing anyone from exercising their constitutional rights. He's merely providing consequences as an employer when they do it on his dime.

That's his constitutional right as an employer.

They can kneel all that they want. They just don't get to play. He could fire them legally and rightfully if he wanted. Too bad for those snowflakes.

1st Amendment Legal Expert on Jerry Jones - "He's a private employer so he's free to make any rules he wants that infringe on free speech,"

When are these racists gonna learn that your employer can fire your ass anytime he or she desires when you don't follow company policy!

The Obama effect still going strong.
