Conservatives are making this image go viral but there’s a problem!
President Donald Trump and his supporters had successfully turned the black athletes’ simple act of kneeling during the national anthem in order to protest against police brutality to a hatred against the people of colour. It seems now Trump supporter has not contended with Trump’s bigoted remark.
Now an image is going viral on Conservative circle attacking black NFL athletes. The image depicts the Seattle Seahawks rejoicing as they burn a flag inside their locker room. The problem here is that the image is photoshopped.
The original photo:
The image clearly shows that the racists would go any far to get out of their way to roil up hatred against black athletes, while the original image only shows a team joyfully bonding.
Earlier, the Seahawks remained in their locker room during the national anthem in protest. This made them the prime targets for right-wing lunatics.
It’s disturbing to see even when some users clarified that the flag burning photo was photoshopped, Trump fans didn’t seem to care. They only cared to spew more hate.
One man even went as far as to say, “Exactly that’s what I’m saying it may be fake but if it wasn’t they would still do it.” These radicals don’t seem to care about reality, they just want to remain angry at people of colour and spread hate against them.
Trump needs to stop focusing on athletes practising their constitutional right to free speech and get back to figuring out how to actually govern the country.
