Black Conservatives Say Players Kneel and Protest at Their Peril
"The NFL has a choice to make, and it's an easy one: political activism or sports," says Project 21 member and U.S. Air Force veteran Stacy E. Washington. "There are ways to sway a community; defiling a national symbol associated with honor, service, sacrifice and bravery isn't one of them. If the NFL continues to indulge the players, declining ratings and lower attendance at games will become the norm. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the team owners must man up: choose the fans by ending the protests." More on NFL athletes kneeling during National Anthem...

CEO Resignations From Trump Business Councils Reveal Leaders' "True Colors"
Justin Danhof notes: "President Trump deserves credit for trying to put together a group of business leaders that included CEOs from across the political spectrum.

Amazon, Apple Called Hypocritical for Bowing to Chinese Censorship Demands
"Liberal social justice CEOs such as Apple's Tim Cook and Amazon's Jeff Bezos like to champion human rights and stand up to local and federal governments here in the United States when it is politically expedient and the stakes are low. But when faced with pressure from a regime such as China that actively squashes the most basic of human rights 3…4 such as the right of free speech and expression 3…4 they seem all too willing to show their true colors and help keep the Chinese people in the dark," says Justin Danhof...
