Many today use the “N” word affectionately between brother’s and sisters in the African American race. Many people use the word bad to mean good and I understand that symbols/statue’s represent totally different views so maybe I can see kneeling before OUR national anthem in a whole new light as well. Maybe kneeling is a symbol of praying on behalf of our country and those that we’ve lost defending it’s freedom. Kneeling is done in many a prayer service as one supplicates themselves to a higher authority maybe in someway they are doing this for our country as a whole when our national anthem is played? The truth is I’d rather see all the players follow # 1 (below) but until that occurs if there is any chance I’ll watch said sport my vision will have to focus on this image instead.
