Consider This...Convergence of politics into sports

(KWES) -

The recent convergence of politics into the sports arena has been polarizing to say the least. If this continues on it stands to make Thanksgiving dinner taste a little different this year. 

Many question, is this the right time and place, can meaningful dialogue occur as a result of kneeling during the national anthem?  

I am just as stunned by some of the President’s Tweets as I am athletes who kneel during the national anthem. 

Consider This… while all eyes are on this fork in the road, what should we expect? Is it reasonable to hope for some sort of action or progress in any direction?  Rubber meets the road when you put your nose down and take action to make foster change.
