    This real talk on a subject that has been very divisive. It took bravery and deep clarify of and thought to give light to this subject with the historical reasons of racial bigotry and hate against another race simply because they were black. Afher hearing this speech are you still a races or you don't why you still refuse to and remain a racist. The answer is WAKE UP AND GET OUT.

    I cannot love this more than I already do! I completely agree with everything he said. I wish more people could look beyond the popular belief and get behind these players taking a knee. If you ever wonder what you would have done during the civil rights movement, it is exactly what you are doing right now. There still is not fair or just treatment because of skin color.

    The American Flag anthem song says stand beside her and guide her not get on your knee. But God said what’s right will be wrong in the last days. But until then we must respect the laws of the land. God Bless America🙏🇺🇸

    what's so amazing about this is I haven't seen no protest from these players on the off season when they weren't getting a paycheck

    It’s got nothing to do with the military but the racist majority and trump base have put that spin on it. Trump never served in the military and faked bone spurs as the reason when we all know he was a coward and afraid to serve. Taking a knee is to spotlight the injustice black and brown folk are subjected to on a daily basis in this country (police brutality, unequal education, housing, unequal hiring practices...). Everyone has not been as privileged as white america who turn a blind eye when it comes to these issues.

    This is so confusing why are people upset that nfl players choose peaceful protest? Its about awareness not disrespect of the flag. If everyone us citizen was required to serve in our military like isreal requires maybe then everyone would realize the true injustice and they would have the right to say what is patriotic or not patriotic. Why every abled us citizen does not serve this countries military is the real question. You your kids and their kids should be veterans or serving if not then your not a real patriot of america. Iv been harrased by white police or white men attacted or felt it was ok to touch me then i was threatened or kicked out because i spoke against these assults. That is injustice that took my rights of being a citizens that made me unsafe in my country.

    I am a Veteran and I will kneel to save the lives of my fellow Americans. The Flag can be replace if ruined. The Anthem will always be there. But Human Lives is irreplaceable! And I Am From Texas.
