Kijuana Nige, the ex-girlfriend of Miami Dolphins coach Chris Foerster released a video of the coach snorting drugs, what seemed to be cocaine. She did so because, the owner of the team, Stephen Ross, who previously supported the players’ protest, changed his tune.
Will Trump be as hard on this drugs snorting Miami Dolphin coach as he was on the players protesting the national anthem for an existential issue?

The Miami News Times reported the following.
This past Sunday, Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross abruptly changed his tune on the NFL player protests. Ross, who’d previously supported players kneeling to raise awareness of police violence and racial inequality, told the Miami Herald’s resident Kaepernick-basher, Armando Salguero, that since President Donald Trump had made the protests “about patriotism,” he now disagreed with the move. Coach Adam Gase then forced three of his players to stay in the tunnel during the National Anthem rather than protest on the field at Hard Rock Stadium.
A few hours later, a Las Vegas-based model named Kijuana Nige took to Facebook to blast the organization for the move — and to fire back in the form of a video that allegedly shows offensive line coach Chris Foerster snorting lines of cocaine inside the Dolphins offices before a meeting.
The media has allowed Donald Trump to spin this protest into something that it is not. It is not a disrespect of our soldiers. It is a rather simple concept. America continues to wrong a segment of its citizenry and then expect complete loyalty to the symbols of their oppression. Have Americans forgotten the documented disparity with which people of color are treated by police in particular and the criminal justice system in general? Have they also forgotten the second verse of the Star Spangle Banner? Here it is.
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
When history is taught from one point of view, it does a disservice to us all. America as a country has been growing and enlightening itself to live up to its codified ideals. Unfortunately, Trump is appealing to an uninformed populace that ultimately put our country in danger of falling into a soft civil war seeded by profound ignorance.
