Respecting the flag — this seems to be a hotly debated topic at this time. The NFL players have brought this issue front and center by refusing to stand during the playing of our national anthem. My question is why?
I would think that if any minority group in this country should be upset by this disrespectful behavior it would be African-Americans.
It took the lives of over 350,000 Union soldiers to free them from slavery while fighting beneath the American flag. Disrespecting the flag does not help their cause. Protest all you want after work but do not disrespect your flag.
