Letter: Enough

"The great power of this country is that we don't have that many rules when it comes to protest", Zazzara said.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick walks off the field after warm ups before an NFL preseason football game against the San Diego Chargers in San Diego on September 1, 2016. The controversy began last football season with Colin Kaepernick refusing to stand during the National Anthem in order to support the Black Lives Matter movement in its fight against police brutality. During preseason, when Kaepernick was not playing, his silent protest went unnoticed.

But what mainly diminishes "Taking the knee" is time: a kneeling campaign can not be sustained.

National Football League owners have so far been okay with all the groups and people Trump has gone after, but going after the National Football League crossed the proverbial line. But, after regretted it that he wasn't with his team rather than paying his respects to the flag he apologized to the fans and media for his actions.

Kalafer said that he encourages "peaceful protest" as well as "real, honest discussion" about issues of "social justice" in the USA, but believes there has been a lack of direction within the National Football League as to how the players should use their voices. Full disclosure, I'm one man, so I can't (and obviously haven't) been to every game for every school all at once, so if it did happen, I just missed it.

Several dozen NFL players, fewer than last week, chose to sit or kneel during the national anthem at the start of games on Sunday, a day after President Donald Trump again demanded an end to a protest he sees as a sign of disrespect for the flag. "He's fired. He's fired!'" "If a student chooses to remain seated or kneel during the national anthem, our existing practice allows students to express their First Amendment right to free speech so long as it does not significantly disrupt the learning environment". These protests have drawn criticism from fans, politicians, news reporters and former players. And some players will kneel during the National Anthem.

Evanston Township High School released a statement and read another as almost 20 players took a knee before their game against New Trier, who had one player kneel, Thursday night. "To me, this is something that has to change". Even singer Jordin Sparks, who got the limelight for her rendition of the Anthem, took a political stand. At London's Wembley Stadium, where the NFL's first game was played on Sunday, three members of the Miami Dolphins knelt as USA singer Darius Rucker performed the US anthem. During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking.

I feel that, as a true American, I must respond. All are symbols protesting racial inequality in America.

Things weren't going well for Colin previous year, who earned $14 million dollars (that part is good) but whose team ended the 2016 season in last place in the NFC West, with just 2 wins and 14 losses (not so good).
