POLL: Should NFL players protest during the National Anthem?

2 min read

More than 200 professional football players around the NFL kneeled or sat during the national anthem during week three of the season, according to the Associated Press. The NFL players did so in protest of President Donald Trump’s criticism on Friday of players who protest police brutality during “The Star Spangled Banner” by refusing to stand or conduct other acts of defiance and stated those players should be fired. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick started the kneeling movement last year when he played for the San Francisco 49ers, refusing to stand during “The Star-Spangled Banner” to protest the treatment of black people by police. Kaepernick became a free agent and has not been signed by a new team for this season, according to the AP.
