I spent the last few days engaging in conversations about the recent NFL “protests.” One the one hand, I’m glad I did it, even if it made me less productive at work! I do believe, broadly speaking, that having conversations about injustice is a positive. It’s our civic responsibility.
On the other hand, I was really disappointed by the level of denial by many of those I interacted with. Most frustrating were the “Yes, BUT…” folks:
“Yes, I believe in their right to protest, BUT…”
“BUT their way of protesting is upsetting people!”
They couldn’t let go of the “BUT.”
