A member of the U.S. fencing team knelt on the podium during the national anthem and medal ceremony Friday at the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru, saying on Twitter: "We must call for change.”

Race Imboden, an Olympic medalist and part of the men’s foil team that won gold at the Pan American Games, wrote on Twitter that he was honored to represent Team USA at the event, but his pride was “cut short” by “shortcomings” of his country.

“Racism, Gun Control, mistreatment of immigrants, and a president who spreads hate are at the top of a long list," he wrote in a series of tweets. "I chose to [sacrifice] my moment today at the top of the podium to call attention to issues that I believe need to be addressed. I encourage others to please use your platforms for empowerment and change.”

I saw his interview on TV, and he was really interesting. He wanted to say that even some white privilege males don't like some of the things that's happening in our country. Now the orange head guy will see people he thought liked him, really can't stand him.

Notice his silence on these that are stated and the Magen Rapinoe led US Women’s National Soccer Team. He was extremely vocal on the black NFL players but ain’t got a damn thing to say about whites kneeling and protesting.

 He’s even more mute about them pilgrims wearing MAGA hats during the anthem at his KKK rallies. His hypocrisy and that of his ilk is sickening.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
