This crap of, "it's his right", that's some bull. I guess since we have a right to say whatever in the hell you want to, then don't get your briefs in a bunch when they exercise their own rights. MY POINT IS, JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN, DOES NOT MEAN YOU SHOULD. Show some damn respect, or kick rocks!

Why I stand up when the National Anthem plays (21 Photos)

Men and women died for that flag. Are there problems in our country- certainly, but standing at attention is a sign of respect for everyone who has served, bled, or died for that flag.


Lift Every Voice and Sing: "Lift Every Voice and Sing", known as the "Black American National Anthem" was performed first as a poem as part of a celebration of Lincoln's Birthday on February 12, 1900, by 500 school children at the segregated Stanton School. Its principal, James Weldon Johnson, wrote the words to introduce its honored guest Booker T. Washington. The poem was set to music soon after by Johnson's brother John Johnson.


"To protest against the flag, which stands for the United States of America, it's a disgrace. And if they don't like it they should go play football in Canada." Jim Riches, whose son Jimmy was a firefighter killed on September 11, responded to NFL players like Colin Kaepernick and Brandon Marshall who are choosing to protest the national anthem.
