More disgusting BS from a pro athlete who doesn't mind accepting the money this country affords him ...
|As the national anthem plays in the background, Howard approaches a camera and says: "'The Star Spangled Banner' is going on right now. I don't even celebrate that (expletive). I'm black"|
There ya go Dawg - "if you're 'to good' - you can't play". Don't 'celebrate' the land that you live in? ....then get out! If it's not 'good enough' for you, then you can't play! Go be proud somewhere else. Go make your millions somewhere else.
Reminds me of an incident involving Mississippi native Chris Jackson (Mahmoud Abdul Raolf, his muslim name) when he played for the Denver Nuggets. He refused to recognize the National Anthem during a game. He was scolded by Hakeem Olajuwon who told him: "Even though you converted to the Muslim faith you must still honor your country. Never forget where you came from."
