When (right/ conservative leaning) Americans suddenly forgot about the very public, peaceful and courageous protest by Jessie Owens winning the Gold medal for America in Nazi Germany and holding his fist up high to symbolise the exact fight for freedoms in the midst of great uncertainty that these people associate with their flag.

Where were blacks when the national anthem was written?? ENSLAVED. This song is not about us and this song is not written for us. So why should we hold it so high lol

Ok so I think everyone has their right to kneel. But I also think it is disrespectful kinda because ur supposed to stand with ur hand on ur heart to respect the country and flag. But u do have the right to protest Peacefully. And what happened to those people who were killed is horrible. It should have never happened. I'm on conflicting sides of this. But all I'm gonna say is don't tell a person they don't understand because we aren't black. U arent the only ones who were beaten and made into slaves. Poor white people where made into slaves, and native Americans were made slaves, had their land taken from them and were killed. I myself am white but I am also native american. I love everyone and I was raised to not be racist and treat everyone with respect. Our country isn't perfect but u have a lot more freedom then other countries do and u should appreciate that. Some countries don't allow women to drive or go to school. Some have arranged marriages. We all should appreciate what the soldiers did for all of us. Because without them , blacks, poor whites and native Americans would still be slaves. Women wouldn't get to work or drive and have the same freedom as men. We came a long way. We all should just love and accept each other. But I'm just say, respect your country, flag, and the soldiers who fought for ur rights.

I don’t care if you kneel as it’s important to those who are Black or African American during this horrible time of racism as it isn’t disrespecting the flag, it’s honoring it in a way to show what it happening in America

Kneeling for the Anthem=Disrespect for America. Men and Woman have fought and died from 1775 all the way till now. If an athlete kneels kick the athlete off the team. You have no right to kneel for the anthem.

Its just a flag nothing else i could give 2 shits about honestly if it ain't making me muneh
Americans really are just dumb cunts, no wonder the world hates you. Listen to that inbred redneck talk, "I-I-I-ITS ARRR CUUUNTRY MAAAN". Racist, Stupid, Obese, Fragile, Flag loving Gun nuts and being led by a old orange cripple. (why this obsession with your hate and violence soaked flag?)

So the flag represents rapist,murderes, and thieves and u should stand up because your buddies or family members died to defend murderes and thieves because thats what cops are doing and getting away with it where's the justice for all on that, some i assume are good cops. Some politics are riping off citizens but people say it disrespects the flag so thats the answer to all of this. Wow smart and hartwarming nah...more like selfish and ignorant to listen.

Never will I agree with this approach. The flag is a representation of America and it is especially meaningful to the military. There are other ways to protest. Kinda crazy a few things get caught on video and it blows up so much. I see it as disrespecting the military, regardless what it’s meant for. It’s a respect thing.

So....kneeling during the national anthem is disrespectful to the flag, but kneeling at church is a sign of respect to God? Kneeling to propose it's a sign of respect too. Way I see it, kneeling is a sign of respect, they're protesting, at the same time showing their respect to the flag/country.

IT doesnt matter who fought in did when this discussion is being had, it doesnt embody those fallen soldiers or represent them or what they individually fought for decades ago. And to use that as an excuse to stop one from protesting is sad and idiotic.

Only people dont get it and are against it for the most part, are rednecks, and narrow-minded idiots, no matter their skin color. The one man said despite whats going on in the country respect the flag and the country. Wow i cant debate with logic, with someone like that.

Dude with the ping hat just like he sees the flag stand for him is his brothers and sisters in military, just like ten flag means like that for him, the flag means something different for everyone just like what some of the stuff the military gets sent for is at necessary. I’ve heard it from some military vets themselves that some of the stuff they go for is questioned. Flag for African americans can mean the slavery their ancestors endured during those hard times!!!! The disrespect for those that have the freedom to free speech.!!!

If a person wants to kneel they are protesting against police brutality or racism but at the same time they are disrespecting the flag and everyone that has fought and died for our freedom. THE FLAG IS NOT JUST A FLAG. It is their right but when it comes to doing something and disrespecting another is should be something that is seriously considered.
P G (10 days ago)
flag defenders suffer from "Symbol/Reality" confusion. They fail to realize the flag is a symbol of a body of land with borders. It's illegal to burn or defame the flag, but perfectly legal to destroy, pollute and burn the land it represents. But this is a country full of people as well. When you respect the symbol a the country, and then turn to murder its peoples via police force, it's flat hypocrisy

Personally I don't get America. being in the UK this kind of racism would get you literally sent to jail I mean you say that black people can't do something as simple as taking a knee and respecting there flag. I mean there are black people who are in the service in America it makes no sense

If this is not about the flag, military or ppl who served then use another platform to make ur fkn point! Tired of niggaz saying- I’m doing this for my people. NO UR NOT!!!

Would you take a knee for the 100,000 Christians killed annually.... for being Christian? How about the millions of people currently in forced labor camps in North Korea and China (communism doing what is does)? Or maybe, all those farmers in South Africa being murdered at the blessing of their government, to steal their land (only to hand it over to entitled people guaranteed to ruin everything just like always)? If you’d kneel over ALL injustices, and not just those in the social trend “look how good I am” category.... kneel all you want! You’re not a fake!!! Otherwise..............

I would never do this every if I don't like the president because I have family who are in the armed forces but at the same time I understand that it is within their constitutional right to do this and they should not be silenced or kicked off team just because they do it they have the right to do this but I would never do this I support America even though I don't like Trump and I do disagree with some of the things that Trump is doing

We live in a country where your considered racist if u like your country, why is it racist to not support kneeling? It’s ok to protest but if u say in other ways besides kneeling whys it wrong? Why don’t players fly out the main justice departments and protest there?
GhettoFights1045 (13 days ago)
This is so sad that we are still going through all this racism bullshit. I can’t stand seeing people in these comments talking to eachother like this. It’s as if we’re two sides of an argument that just won’t stop. It’s one thing after another 😞

So you can get mad at a football player kneeling during the anthem, but you can't get mad at all the school violence/shootings that are happening around the world? *Freedom of speech.* *Freedom of Petition.* Are you telling me we don't have those freedom anymore? What on earth is America becoming. Wasn't it the land of freedom? Now people are being murdered, raped, assaulted, abused and no one is doing anything about it. Yet people are burning shoes just because a football player decided to kneel during the anthem. You guys care more about disrespecting the flag than the innocent people who are getting killed or injured by the people who are supposed to keep us safe. Nobody should ever feel scared of going to school. Nobody should ever feel scared when walking outside. There are other big problems in this country than a black male kneeling during the national anthem.

I think it's really poor of these coaches to kick these players off the team and lose their future because of them kneeling during the Star Spangled Banner. This is one of the most peaceful ways to protest I've seen, despite me only being 15, and I don't think it should lead to such extreme consequences.
