Either A Blessing Or A Lesson.
I realize that taking the knee has been established as the the thing to do but it was never a good idea to be the symbol of protest when traditionally it's symbolized subservience and inferior rank worldwide. It runs counter to other men's liberation movements that embraced the notion of dying on ones feet rather than living on their knees and that's probably where some of the cringe comes from.Some YT people really get on my nerves. I’ve been watching some British tennis and commenting on the matches on another forum. Before the match starts the players and umpires have been taking the knee. Someone asked why are they doing this, and “this is just an American issue.” They find it uncomfortable and cringeworthy to watch.
Like are you serious right now, how the hell is this just an American issue? The racism in the UK is just as bad if not worse as it’s so covert. And goodness me I’m sorry that a show of solidarity is making you feel uncomfortable.
