BLACK COMMUNITY DECLARES WAR ON AMERICA: Black Seahawks To Piss On National Anthem As Group

The Seattle Seahawks hope to make a statement in their season-opening matchup versus the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

But some of the players might make a statement before the game even starts.

Following protests by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Seattle cornerback Jeremy Lane, members of the Seahawks might join together to address the issues that motivated Kaepernick to first sit, then kneel during the playing of the national anthem.

Linebacker Bobby Wagner said Wednesday that the team is considering a show of unity in order to promote justice and equality for all Americans, regardless of skin color.

“Anything that we want to do, it’s not going to be individual,” Wagner said ahead of practice at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center. “It’s going to be a team thing because that’s what the world needs to see. The world needs to see people coming together versus being individuals.”

Kaepernick sat for the national anthem during the preseason as a way of protesting what he believed to be the unequal treatment of minorities in America — specifically police brutality against African Americans — telling NFL Network he refused to “stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppressed black people and people of color.”

Lane followed Kaepernick’s lead ahead of Seattle’s preseason finale versus the Oakland Raiders on Sept. 1, while Kaepernick and teammate Eric Reid amended their protests to kneeling during the national anthem as a sign of respect to the military ahead of the Niners’ final preseason game.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told reporters he expected Lane to continue his protest on Sunday.

“We’ve talked some about it,” Carroll said. “He’s pretty clear what he did and what he was trying to express. I think it’s very simple, so we’ll leave that up to him. But he’s understanding the responsibility of it, I think, and shouldering it.”

Wide receiver Doug Baldwin, never shy about expressing his opinions, took to Facebook to discuss the issue on Sept. 4, using a parable to argue people were more concerned with Kaepernick’s method of protest than the issues he raised.

“I think that’s what the issue is here,” Baldwin said on Wednesday. “We’re missing the message in terms of what we’re talking about. It’s not necessarily about the messenger or about the protest itself. It’s about what we’re pointing to.”

Baldwin and his teammates have discussed a larger protest, but the 27-year-old said he wanted to get “all of my ducks in a row” before he disclosed any plans.
