"Nothing" worthy of being proud about? Nothing at all, huh? Then I would leave if I were either of them.

Boot, meet ass. Ass, meet boot.

Elite College Students Say America 'Not Worth Being Proud Of'

Two students at one of America’s most elite liberal arts colleges recently decried America as not offering “anything worth being proud of.”

In an opinion essay for The Oberlin Review, student field hockey team members Kennedy Kline and Ua Hayes boasted of taking the knee during the National Anthem at their most recent field hockey game:


When our field hockey team stood for the national anthem Saturday, it didn’t feel right. We didn’t feel proud to be standing for America because we didn’t feel that America offers anything worth being proud of.

Both Kline and Hayes are students at Oberlin College, currently ranked the 26th top liberal arts college by U.S. News and World Report. Comprehensive tuition is $67,917 for one year alone, not including expenses like travel and books.

Citing America’s history of slavery, Kline and Hayes justify their actions by claiming that their "blackness" supersedes their identity as Americans. Despite being college-sponsored athletes, both argue that they are “are always Black first and athletes second.”

Standing for the National Anthem, they claim, is something they just can’t do:


Simply standing for the flag because it’s what we’ve been conditioned to do isn’t enough for us anymore. Because we can’t stand for all of America, we kneel.

In an interview with PJ Media, Ua Hayes, a freshman at Oberlin, said that Trump’s presidency was the deciding factor behind her decision to take a knee:


The fact alone that Trump is president is enough reason for me to never stand for the anthem.

Be willing to bet we don't all have the same reasons to not be proud of the US. People who think like this dolt would be at the top of MY list.

I think ONE WAY tickets back to Africa should be offered to any of these "black first" racist jerk offs, and if they turn it down, then ask them to recant their anti American garbage, and if they don't, DEPORT the sons a bitches whether they want to go back to Africa or NOT.

Sickening sons a bitches. If I had the power to make that happen, I would, and the progtards could wail and gnash their teeth kicking, screaming and frothing at the mouth calling me a racist all they wanted, but I wouldn't give a flying fuck to a rolling doughnut... I'd deport them too.

Give up their citizenship.
Destroy their Social Security Number.
Empty all bank account sources.
Use their only cash on tickets out of the country.
Promise to NEVER RETURN, and sign a Federal Document
https://www.expatinfodesk.com/expat-guide/relinquishing-citizenship/renunciating-your-us-passport/misconceptions-about-renunciation-of-a-us-passport/
1) Once you have filed renunciation you are still required to file US tax returns for the next ten years
Although this used to be true it is no longer the case. Now all you do is file a final return for the part of the year when you were still a citizen. That final return also includes Form 8854, which lists what, if any, exit tax is due.

2) Upon filing for renunciation the IRS will take half of your wealth
If you have a net worth less than $2 million and don’t meet the IRS income test after giving up US citizenship, you automatically owe no exit tax. If your net worth is over $2 million, you are what the IRS calls a “covered expatriate,” meaning you MAY have to pay exit tax. But you also may not, even if your net worth is $200 million or $2 billion.

So how can you tell what you would owe, if anything? You pay exit tax on unrealized gains as of the day before you give up your passport. In other words, it's as if you sold all your assets the day before you expatriated and paid whatever applicable tax would have been owed (long-term capital gains, ordinary income, etc.). If you own illiquid assets when you expatriate such as private companies or real estate, you'll need to get a fair market valuation done to determine what, if any, gains you would have had IF they had been sold. Here's a critical caveat in the calculation: You get a free pass, called the “exclusion amount,” on the first $626,000 in gains. If you're married and your spouse expatriates with you, the exclusion amount doubles to $1.252 million. For example, you and your spouse could expatriate with a stock portfolio showing $1.2 million in gains and not owe exit tax on it. Even if the portfolio tripled in value shortly after expatriating, you could sell it any time and owe no taxes.

To recap, if upon giving up US citizenship you own assets with unrealized gains of less than $626,000, you will not owe exit tax, no matter how wealthy you are. If you are required to pay tax it's less tax than you would have paid if you'd stayed in the U.S. and sold the assets. Plus, if any asset you pay exit tax on continues to rise in value post-renunication, all those additional gains are yours.

3) Renunciation means that you will never be permitted to visit the US again
When you give up US citizenship you do forego the right to enter the country. However, providing you have a passport from a country that allows you visa-free entry to the U.S., then you can enter the country just like any other visitor; you simply apply for a tourist or business visa at a U.S. embassy or consulate. It's called a B1/B2 visa, and it typically lasts for ten years.

4) Upon giving up US citizenship you lose your pension, Social Security and Medicare
This is not true. You’re still entitled to these after you expatriate. With Medicare you obviously have to be in the U.S., so this would be limited to visits there.

5) People who renounce their passports are required to attend interviews to justify why they wish to relinquish citizenship
You will be required to make an expatriation appointment, fill out forms, sign the “oath of renunciation,” and hand the official your U.S. passport. Providing you attend the meeting with the appropriate documentation and behave courteously, it’s an easy and mechanical process. For full details concerning the process for giving up US citizenship please see our guide to renouncing us citizenship.

Send them back to "Their" roots they are so proud of (Paid flight and good riddance)

I'm just trying to picture these spoiled, coffee-colored blacks in Africa. Their pansy asses wouldn't last a week. The nearest warlord would let all his boys rape the women repeatedly then kill them. The men and children would be killed outright. Joke's on THEM. Black Africans think African Americans are an inferior race because they have mixed blood.

If the local warlord doesn't kill them, the nearest radical Islamic sect will.

SHould some make it past THAT initiation, women are chattel. They have ZERO rights to anything and can be killed just for the f*ck of it.

Yeah, run on back to Africa.

imagine colin kaepernick in somalia.They would kill him and strip every single thing on his body off and sell it. He could explain his "Rights" all he wanted until they shot him or chopped his head off and put it on a pike. Then the little kids and women would walk by and kick and/or spit on his head.

People here think they have it so tough. THAT is reality in the REAL world they think they know all about and don't know shit.

OMG the outrage over what two teenagers think! You guys are propaganda sponges.Teenagers vote. YOU are the propaganda sponge if you believe even HALF the shit you defend on this board.

Speaking of ... WHAT outrage? Commenting on a thread is "outrage"? Or the behavior of those you defend is the outrage? I'll go with the latter. Otherwise, I'm cocked back in my recliner with a Coke and a laptop posting on a message board where I don't have to convince those who agree with me and have no hope of convincing those that disagree.

But if you think I jest, haul your little ass right on over to Africa and explain all your "Rights" and "freedom" to the nearest village chieftain. PLEASE take stream it so we can watch for as long as it may last :)
