Symone Sanders is a well known CNN commentator. Here comments… usually less than logical.
The other day, Sanders stated, “White people do not get to tell blacks folks or anybody else what is an acceptable form of protest.”

She was replying to her colleague Ben Ferguson’s criticism of the national anthem protests by NFL players.
Here is part of the back and forth:
FERGUSON: As long as the NFL is consistently coming out there disrespecting this country, I expect the President of the United States of America to not attend an event where people are disrespecting the United States of America and those that gave the ultimate sacrifice. I don’t care if you’re Republican or Democrat. …
You have a duty, an obligation as President of the United States of America to leave a situation where people are basically giving the middle finger to the men and women that have fought and protected this country.
SANDERS: No one’s giving the finger, that is false and you should be ashamed to be perpetuating this lie. There are veterans and folks who are saying that these players have a right. No, you don’t get to. Ben, white people do not get to tell blacks folks or anybody else what is an acceptable form of protest.
FERGUSON: Not everything’s about race, Symone.
SANDERS: Maybe not for you, it is. But for folks who are protesting police brutality, it absolutely is about race.
