In the article, ¨The NFL and the Anthem¨(btw) I learned that many NFL players began a silent protest during the national anthem by kneeling dont while it plays during a football game it all started with the 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Their is a huge controversy and the NFL has made some rules like nfl players have to be present during the National anthem. The minute this became public many people had a say in this.

Many have different views on kneeling or not kneeling even in other sports like basketball players started kneeling and started to be more political. SOme of those players being Lebron James and the whole BLM things. These silent protest are happening because of the injustices that are happening to Black americans in the united states.

What do you think players should do?
