I'll be the first to admit that he has a right to say whatever he wants, including this B.S.

So do I and let me exercise that right by saying, fuck josh howard.

I understand (but do not condone) where he's coming from.

With that said, I would NEVER say something like that personally and come on dude, just put your hand over your damn heart. Or at least keep your mouth shut and at least LOOK respectful. How hard is that?

What does being black have to do with the star spangled banner? Maybe I am missing something here, but is howard really smart enough to know that many black slaves fought for the British in promise of freedom?

If he did, then sure great. But I think Josh is just an idiot who ties the anthem with white people, and dislikes it for that fact.

Apparently the whole tone of the day on that video was one of "F Authority. We Gangstas Here"

He has the right to speak his mind, but I think a good point was made here at work. Why has he never indicated anything of this nature in all his years in the NBA. He's never attempted to take any sort of stand when the anthem is played at every game. Now he's suddenly Black and won't do it? "Don't be Black when it's comfortable"

You should know by now, that there's still a generation of Blacks bitter over Civil Rights and slavery and all that bullshit. Civil Rights I can get. Slavery? No way.

(I use bullshit loosely. Its not really bullshit)

Let's see.... you make millions of dollars in game checks and endorsements to play a child's game. And your response to is to be disrespectful of the country that makes that possible? If you're really that committed to this point of view, whatever the fuck justifies it in your mind, go play ball overseas, get paid in euros or rial or renminbi and keep it real. In the mean time, shut the fuck up.

The part that has me so pissed off is that he's not bad mouthing the current leaders of our nation or any specific facet. When you disrespect the anthem or the flag you are disrespecting all of the people who gave their lives so that you can live in a country where you're free to do whatever you like. Even if that means spitting in their faces with your clown ass behavior. No excuse for this level of ignorance. None.

Well said.

He gets to enjoy the benefits of this nation, but doesn't have respect for it? Makes no sense.

Colin Cowherd's point earlier today on this was; dumb people say dumb things. While I often dislike Cowherd, I think he's right on here.

In the YouTube/Cell phone camera age, any high-profile person should approach everything they say in public (and unfortunately private also) as if it would be plastered all over the Internet. To think the way Howard does is wrong and dumb IMO, to say it in front of a camera is beyond stupid or he's just a disrespectful punk (probably a combination of both).

I'm sure he didnt think about the many thousands of black people who sacrificed, suffered, fought and died for this country's freedom. He also didn't think about the thousands that sacrificed, suffered, fought and died for civil rights. He should also pause and think about the lives lead by billions of people in third-world countries and thank God that he lives in the U.S. and has the lifestyle he has.

I'd be more pissed if Dirk Nowitzki said "fuck this star spangled shit, I'm German."

Right I know that, but we are talking about the star spangled banner, written in 1814, and Civil war and Civil rights movement were alot later.

I guess I can see the song represents America, and it was white run at the time, but again I ask, did Josh howard protest for that reason? I think not. SS seems right that he thought it's gangsta he is not listening to authority.

Josh Howard can barley speak let alone speak for anyone else. Free speech isn't free and this might cost him, a lot.

America has made Mr. Howard rich without him having a real job. He SHOULD be very thankful he's an American.

Idiot. I hope he loses a lot of his money (and future income) from this asinine statement.
