    I have said good riddance to the dying generation of old racist whites whether family or family friends if they are overtly racist and bigoted. Don't need their old crusty "who moved my cheese" attitude. Let the old 70 year old racists ******* stop watching. I doubt many of the advertisers care.

    I disagree with the message but I will still watch the sport. This is America and they can display whatever they want if the league rules allow it. I am not 70 and I am not a racist, so your comment is astoundingly shallow.

    I did like the idea of giving them a list, because many people aren't creative enough to think of something good to put on there. I am disappointed that they didn't allow guys to submit their own ideas though. I can't remember which Raptor it was, but he wanted "Am I next?". I thought that was a great idea.

    What part of the message do you disagree with? The NBA wants equality and itís on every Mavericks player jersey. Do you disagree with equality? Iím curious what part are you confused on.

    Where is the disconnect? These are positive messages or am I missing something?

    You guys will probably think I'm kidding, but mark my words... one day, when we are taking a s--- and realize we are low on toilet paper, we will order toilet paper and somehow... some way... picking the brand of toilet paper will be highly political.

    My theory, a marketing genius will put "Black Lives Matters" on toilet paper and then other companies will quickly mark every sheet of toilet paper with "Black Lives Matters" out of fear that if they don't conform, the world will see them as NOT thinking Black lives matter.

    We can't seem to separate politics from sports/entertainment anymore. It'll leak into ever facet of our lives (as if it hasn't already). The most trivial non-political details of our lives will transform into heavily divisive politics. Something to look forward to in the future!

    I have a problem with kneeling during the anthem, first and foremost. I all of this is a non-issue if it's not an election where the Democrats lost the previous one. Philando Castille was an upstanding Minneapolis citizen, and there was barely a whisper when he got wrongly killed by a police officer, Jorge Floyd was a career criminal and he was made into a martyr(he didn't deserve to die and the police officer that killed him clearly deserves everything coming to him). That's just for starters, but I could go on for a page or two.

    Imagine thinking BLM ISN'T a political movement (albeit, with many worthy causes).

    The second Black Lives Matters really believes and acts like all Black lives matter, instead of selective outrage/focusing heavily on secondary issues, the second they become a universally legitimate movement. I actually think one day Black Lives Matters will stop with their selective outrage and truly encompass ALL Black lives... maybe I'm too much of an optimist though.

    If anyone sold toilet paper with the words Black Lives Matter in every sheet, racist pricks around the globe would buy it and use it.

    Think about it, Einstein.

    Yep, and black people would buy it, use it and say it's not racist because they are black. It's so sad, it's funny what our society has become. We deserve the leadership we have, is all I can say.

    You're asking for too much from the plebeians , blm has vilified cops. Cops lost funding so now homicides are up in major cities (I'd wager mostly black criminality and suffering too), iirc we lost a sex crimes unit here. Brilliant

    I didn't think I could lose more respect for harden but the mask fiasco did it for me. Dude didn't even know the branding during a blm event lolol.

    Thx for the 24% increase in murders nation wide BLM and dunce athletes/celebs

    So all lives matter then? Or change tp to another product, you get his point tho right. I applaud the companies not bending the knee to these off movements.

    Einstein was a fraud and a plagiarist btw
