I will always stand for the flag. But something lost is that we can agree to disagree and still be civil. I will not support the BLM movement (See a BLM organizer in Chicago stating looting is ok because its reparations) but it does not mean I will be disrespectful toward it. 

As I said before I truly believe this is the greatest country in the world and part of what makes it great is our freedom to express our opinions.

Agree.  You have a right to kneel for the anthem, the same way Jimbo has a right to avoid anything associated with that act of protest.

I have mostly been trying to stay out of this conversation; but would like like to offer one opinion and pose a couple of question. My opinion is: EVERY opinion matters and everyone has a right to express theirs in a civil and lawful way.

My questions have to do with the phrase "Black Lives Matter."  When the movement was first taking form, many said why not change it to ALL Lives Matter. The response was, if you desire to make this change you DO NOT understand the issues. Well I guess, I still do not understand the issues? Secondly, many felt BLM should not only address police brutality, but ALSO the brutal shootings and killings going on in Chicago, Baltimore, Albany and many cities across this country. While giving some lip service to this, IMHO BLM seem to think black lives DO NOT matter when blacks shoot blacks?  The violence and deaths perpetuated by blacks upon blacks, FAR exceeds that done by police brutality.   I do not agree with kneeling during the anthem; but like I said every opinion matters and I might understand those who do kneel if they presented a more consistent stance.

The thing that frustrates me the most is that the sports leagues have acquiesced to a form of behavior that would very likely result in an employee being fired or disciplined from most other businesses.  I don’t know where all of you have worked in your careers, but I can tell you that overt disrespect at a patriotic event or any overt political displays and my a$$ would have been out the door. Tolerate it they did...now they are full fledged giving a platform. I can’t accept that. It’s wrong in my book and it’s not the way I was raised.
