Is kneeling during the National Anthem disrespectful? Today’s debate on social media because of the coverage of the NFL players and owners that are kneeling or not standing or not evening coming out on the field. Well here is one thought on the kneeling:So then, kneeling isn’t disrespectful at all. However, there is something going on the country that these people are concerned about and are sending out positive vibes into the universe for a full recovery? Recovery? That would suggest that at some point this “problem” wasn’t there. So if its racism or inequality that they are hoping the country recoveries from…well that would be so much as a recover as it would be a first time cure.
Personally, I don’t have a problem with protesting as long as its peaceful. How much more peaceful can you get than to just kneel or sit or stay away during something. This isn’t the first time there has been kneeling…MLK Jr. did it. This isn’t the first sit in either, 1961 Greensboro college students. At least there isn’t tiki torches, yelling, signs, or violence. Therefore, their kneeling, sitting, or staying in the locker rooms are all freedom to protest and covered by the First Amendment. So…that part is a non-starter. What we really need to be focused on and figuring out how to how is WHAT they are protesting.
They say it isn’t the flag, its not the veterans, its not the President…its the inequality and racism in the country. Now I’m not saying there isn’t all those things but I have to insist on definitions of the terms as they are being used here.
Inequality to gays? Females? Blacks? Immigrants? All minorities? If not all, which minorities? Married people? Single People? Gingers? I need more!!!
Racism against Blacks? Asians? All minorities? Some minorities? If a white guy is the only white guy in a company of 50 people doesn’t that make him the minority? Is it racism as a whole/ across the country? In pockets? In industries? I really need more!!!!
I need more information before I will pass my person opinion or judgement on the issue.
