They are simply (racist?) morons that chose to ignore facts, hands in the air was found to be a myth, and focus on feelings.

    Did these players hold up a sign with a derogatory statement written on it?

    That's the point. It would have to be all or nothing, and IMO "all" would make it a very slippery slope. If these guys got their time, theoretically any player now has the right to make any kind of protest or political statement. And that would be chaos.
