NFL Players Protesting National Anthem

 

The past few weeks in America hasn’t been great or even close to good. Half of the United States is furious with how this nation has become. NFL players and their organizations have been protesting equal rights and that everyone be treated the way you want to be treated.

President Trump recently told the whole Golden State Warriors organization that they weren’t welcome to visit the White House for winning the Finals. What President Trump did, caused numerous threats. LeBron James said, “it was an honor to go to the White House, until you showed up. Trump called the Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones, reportedly four times before their game Monday night about the whole protesting. All of the Cowboys organization took a kneel and locked arms during the anthem. Jerry Jones said after the game “our players wanted to make a statement about equality.” Jones ended up saying that “they were very much aware that statement, when made or when attempted to be made in and a part of the recognition of our flag, can not only lead to criticism but also controversy.”

Colin Kaepernick

Michael Bennett is the defensive end for the Seattle Seahawks. Michael has been protesting in the past year or so, that the United States and their people need to treat everyone whether they be black, Hispanic it doesn’t matter, whatever ethnic race you are, you should be treated with equal rights and everyone be treated equally. Mr. Bennett said, “I challenge every American, to treat a person like human beings, that’s the first step. The second step is to recognize and see somebody as an equal human being when you recognize them.”

President Trump ranting

The August of 2016, Colin Kaepernick started protesting police brutality and the inequality that people of color in the United States face. He did all this by initially sitting for the National Anthem, but alternated into a kneel. Colin Kaepernick is still a free agent for National Football League. President Trump said, that the NFL owners need to fire the “sons of bitches” that are “disrespecting the flag.” With the words that our president said caused numerous of problems in our country. Half of the nation hates the other half. The United States needs to come together and become one, not two half’s. Disrespecting our country is disrespecting our soldiers who put their life`s on the line every day to protect our life`s.
