Your article “NFL Protests: Stars Should Get off Their Knees and Lead a Constructive Conversation on Race” touches upon a recent event that has occurred not too long ago, involving an NFL player and the president of the United States. People need to focus more on stronger protests, rather than sticking to something simple that will probably not lead to much change.
