Josh Howard Is An Idiot- Won't Salute The Flag

The Dallas Mavericks Josh Howard doesn't care for the “Star Spangled Banner.”

On the court, Josh Howard is graceful and smooth, but off the court, he's a complete jackass! In the past, Howard has admitted to smoking weed, getting arrested for driving nearly 100 in a 55 mile-per-hour zone and throwing a party the night before a playoff game, but those aren't the only things this fool is guilty of; He doesn’t like the national anthem.

Granted, we are all entitled to our own opinions and whatnot, but at least back your opinion up with something of substanence. Howard is caught on YouTube at Allen Iverson’s recent celebrity flag football game telling the camera: “The Star Spangled Banner’s going on right now. I don’t celebrate that -ish. I’m Black.” Then he goes on to mutter something about Sen. Barack Obama before the camera is aimed a different way.

Sooooo, just because you're black, you're not supposed to salute the flag? Since when? Of course, I don't salute the flag everytime the National Anthem is playing because I know that my love for my country is in my heart and not just on my chest. But if you don't believe in this country, the country that has afforded you these fancy cars, big houses, and salaries that equal up to 20 middle class families, then get the hell on! Our soldiers are out there fighting everyday to keep us safe and to protect the current riddled situation that we are in. Don't make it worse by compounding statements such as these that should be kept to your damn self!
