In a statement released by the court's public information officer, Ginsburg said she had been "barely aware of the incident or its purpose" and that she should have "declined to respond" when asked the question by Yahoo's Katie Couric.

To be fair (?) I doubt if she remembers anything that happened three minutes ago.  She's so old she has the memory of a goldfish.

Great to hear from you with yet another personal insult, not like I expected anything else.  Was concerned that you were ill or something.  (no :ph34r:)

More white people are killed by cops than blacks.

 

 

Well, I would fucking hope so since 76.9% of the population is white. And 13.3% is black.

Considering those numbers, if more blacks were killed by cops, it would be a even bigger problem.

But as it is, 13.3% of the population ends up being 25% of people killed by cops.

 

 That means black Americans are 3 times as likely as white Americans to be shot and killed by police officers.

 I am upset with NFL players not wanting to stand during the Pledge of Allegiance. (Now cheerleaders are joining the protest, too. Gee!)

I am also tired of ESPN pretending they are MSNBC or CNN. I don't need ESPN or Hollywood movie stars to tell me how to think. 

This season, I will boycott ESPN and all NFL games with the exception of the Bengal games. I turn the TV on at kickoff. I don't listen to the pregame or post game hype by ESPN or CBS talking heads.

I get my Bengal news here.

Is anyone else boycotting the NFL, or am I the lone wolf?

 

 

 

Educate yourself. 

Informed opinions are much more valuable and respected than uninformed opinions.
