Recently there has been not quite a bit of controversy regarding the NFL and some players kneeling during the national anthem to show solidarity for unarmed black men who have been killed by police. Some say this is an insult to the country and the NFL should be boycotted. Others say they are simply exercising there free speech and that there job shouldn’t prevent them from being politically active. Personally I think its great these athletes are using there prestige and influence to get people talking about an issue that moderate Americans generally ignore. Frankly I also find the whole its disrespectful argument silly and trite this isn’t North Korea we don’t have to stand when the anthem plays.
