Kneeling during anthem isn’t disrespectful

Kneeling in respect while the national anthem is played is not disrespectful. The athletes show respect with a hope that full consideration will one day be achieved for all citizens regardless of nationality, color, religion or gender as is the promise of our Constitution.

To declare these thoughtful and decent athletes as disrespectful of our flag is flagrant and biased information. The real disrespect was directed to our nation and our flag when several pro-fascist demonstrators, some of whom may well have been KKK or neo-Nazis, marched in Charleston under the Nazi flag, complete with swastika. Our current president referred to those demonstrators as “good people”.

How many citizens really want to join him in declaring neo-Nazis and other white supremacists as “good”?
