The NFL protest ramped up over the weekend after President Trump told supporters at a rally that he would like the NFL to fire the “sons of bitches” who take a knee during the national anthem.
As a News Director, it is my job to represent both sides of a controversy. Having said that, I will pose my thoughts today in the form of a question. Actually, a few questions.
Is it an Anti American protest or a way to speak out against anti racial inequality?
Is there a better way for the President of the United States to send a message about flag respect without saying he’d “fire the sons of bitches?”
Is there a better way for highly paid NFL players to fight for equality than to kneel during the anthem?
When a team refuses to come to the field has it gone too far in this protest?
What do you think about all of this? I’d love to know.
