The NFL Interview No One Is Talking About

Everyone thinks it is terribly disrespectful for NFL players to take a knee during the National Anthem, but no one has heard why they choose that particular stance to protest.  It isn’t meant to be disrespectful of the anthem or the armed forces or the flag, it’s meant to represent a flag at half mast.

Colin Kapernick and Eric Reid who began the protests actually consulted a retired Green Beret before deciding what stance to take to protest the militarization of most police forces in the US.

Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with NFL players protesting on the job, read the article and try to understand why they are doing it.

NYTimes interview with Eric Reid and I agree with Reid, kneeling is more respectful than sitting during it.

  1. When Colin Kapernick started this it was in reference to the BLM movement that blew up in his face and he turned it to the flag as the next excuse. I am sorry it has gone thru so many ‘stories’ but that’s what they were excuses to make it a different issue. Now Black players in not protecting a quarterback who was a vet and stood thru the anthem, they have thrown games {a crime} and caused a fracture of his spine. That I will Never forgive. The NFL is dying and the Black Panther salutes and the hiding in tunnels etc just make it’s death more quick. They started it as a race bait against the men in Blue. Sorry No PASS.
