10 Reasons Why I Believe NFL Players Should Be Allowed To Kneel During The National Anthem

“I cannot stand and sing the Anthem. I cannot salute the flag; I know that I am a black man in a white world,” Them are the words of baseball star and someone who changed sports forever, Jackie Robinson.

In 1972, Robinson published his autobiography “I Never Had it Made,” where Robinson revealed that he could never stand and sing the National Anthem as Robinson was a black man in a world that was not made for him.

Throughout this blog I’ll give out my 10 reasons why I believe kneeling should be allowed by these pro athletes and really anyone. Even though I stand during the Anthem.


These reasons aren’t in order of a “TOP 10” these are just 10 reasons I believe athletes shouldn’t be forced to stand during the National Anthem.

Let’s get this out of the way: People believe that these athletes are protesting the United States Flag/Military which is completely wrong.


These athletes are protesting something that needs to be focused on, racial inequality and police brutality.

9. First Ammendment

First Amendment reveals that it protects several basic liberties — freedom of religion, speech, press, petition, and assembly. Interpretation of the amendment is far from easy, as court case after court case has tried to define the limits of these freedoms.

    There are not any good reasons and you need to rethink the issue. It is their job to play football because they get paid to play. Other companies would not allow protesting on the job. If they want to protest do it on their own time their money they could afford to pay for tv time. I do not think the American people should see their flag disrespected. YOU ARE SO WRONG.

    YOU ARE WRONG ON ALL THINGS. They are at work because they get paid for playing. Companies do not allow others to protest on the job’s time. Why do American people have to watch these men who work in America and get paid outlandish wages disrespect our flag.
