President Donald Trump is definitely not very happy about these protests, saying that the players are disrespecting our flag and should be suspended or fired. People against these protests also believe that by taking a knee during the anthem the players are disrespecting the military and all of the sacrifices they make for our country. There have been several veterans, though, who have spoken out and said that they agree with and are on the protester’s side. Others say they will never watch the NFL again, because they do not want to support anything disrespecting America. NFL players have the freedom of speech and protest rights so they are able to speak out against

The current debate over kneeling or sitting in protest during the National anthem ignited by Colin Kaepernick in 2016 has escalated to become a nationally divisive issue. Colin Kaepernick, quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers refuse to stand during “the Star Spangled Banner” Aug. 2016, to protest against racial injustice and police brutality in the United States. These athletics that chose not to stand for the national anthem because there was a message they wanted to send. Needless to say, an individual has a right to believe as they so choose. Kaepernick along with many others feel that not standing for the national anthem is a peaceful way to protest and release their feelings.
People who oppose this way to protest tend to say you have no rights to kneel during the anthem. They also say that kneeling during the anthem is not showing any pride for the America. Someone even went as far as saying ‘They are spitting on the graves of everyone killed on 911. That may not be their intention but that is reality. (Expletive) you and (expletive) them.
Why do you stand during the National Anthem, some people stand out of pure respect, other people sit because they are “oppressed”. Colin Kaepernick started a controversial protest during the preseason football game on August 14th. Many people agree that it is for a good cause, but he is not choosing the right time to protest. People believe that standing during the National Anthem is a sign of respect and gratitude for your country, but people like Kaepernick chose this time to sit or kneel to get people to look at the oppression towards minorities in the country. Kaepernick told a reporter, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people, and people of color.” Then he continued to say “To me,
Not showing respect to US flag may mean disrespecting US Army. Therefore, lots of people in America state that Colin Kaepernick, quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, shouldn’t make his protest in that manner. In contrast, Colin Kaepernick should have protested in his manner for the following reasons. To begin with, the action made by Colin Kaepernick was a really effective way to attract attention. After the game that he first started his protesting, lots of reporters dash to Kaepernick and tried to interview him even though there was no interview.
In past protest, people have made signs and have marched, in today 's situation people are burning the American flag. It should be illegal, right? The sad news is that it is one hundred percent legal. It should be illegal to burn the flag because it is a symbol of America and freedom, it is disrespectful, and it is an important part in history. What would happen if someone tried to rip up or burn the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence?
As Donald Trump said when addressing the Colin Kaepernick situation, “You should find a country that works better for him, let him try.” So if you do not like how America is treating you, just move to another country. If America is the country that does not give the respect you want then just move and try another country to see if they agree with your opinions. So quit your National sports team and move, no one in America will care and will support your decision because you are standing up for your beliefs without disrespecting America. Or speak out, make fundraisers to raise awareness about the situation so that will make everyone in America join and support you and help out the country then cause a whole troubled situation that will spread worldwide and cause a lot more controversies than it really should be. Now those people with color that are kneeling during the National Anthem will not get much better treatment because of how you are disrespecting our country.
Symbolic interactionist perspective in the article is the “flag” it symbolizes patriotic for the country and the “national anthem” shows how we fought for our freedom. Kaepernick believes that the flag does not represent that for his people. Kaepernick states the reason why he is so willing to sit is because of all the police brutality throughout the Caucasian, Hispanic, and African American community. Kaepernick said “I am not going to stand up and show pride for a country that oppresses black people, and people of color. To me this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way.
A number of Americans have recently suggested that the protest of football player, Colin Kaepernick was extremely wrong. At first glance, it does seem a little rude, and even offensive to people, but his reasoning behind doing it was strong. He refuses to stand up and represent a country and flag that still oppress people of color. America is regressing with equality and control over citizens, that’s not always the citizens fault, if people are treated poorly or a group is being attacked, people are going to react accordingly; and he has the power to speak out and stand up for the people that cannot. Yes, there are other ways that he could have protested and voiced his opinion, but either way, no matter how he did it, people would have gotten
They don 't want another racist shooting to happen. The flag is to racist to sell or for it to be displayed. A lot of people think they are cool with the flag and that they are cooler and all of that other stuff. Some people will use the flag as a gang sign and people treat the flag like it is trash and it doesn 't belong in America. The british people use this same flag but they use it for different reasons.
The national anthem is a time for patriotism, not politics. Pro athletes have gone to far because they should respect people who fight for their freedom, they could’ve taken a different course of action, and it’s a time for patriotism, not politics.

The people who are against immigration want it to get rid of it or they want it to be extremely limited in our country. One person who talked about how limiting immigration and stopping people from coming to the United States is a good change for us is David Goldman. In his article “President Trumps Immigration Ban is Magnificently Right” Goldman says that Trumps 90-day travel ban is “callous towards individual Muslims but merciful to American citizens, who have the right to go about their business without fear of mass terrorist attacks.” (Paragraph 3). Being against immigration because of the fear or extra crime and terrorism seems to be one of the main reasons for people in the United States to be against it. In the last election it was one of President Trumps main areas of focus.
The argument is that evolution goes against intelligent design making the theory of evolution very hard to teach in a public setting. In the famous book “Inherit the Wind” Bertram Cates teaches evolution in his high school biology class and the whole town treats him like a criminal for going again the Bible, Christianity, and creationism, they even go as far as asking God to send him to Hell. In some aspects, Evolution is thought of as a religion as well, again, making it illegal to prohibit it from being taught. So representing both sides would benefit the public greatly because it would be unconstitutional to do
