2017 Letters to the editor stock

NFL players taking an knee during the national anthem is neither desecrating the flag nor the United States. It is a protest of racism.

If the flag had a knee, the flag would go on knee with the players.

The media is trying to change the demonstration to one about the flag.

Some people — and President Donald Trump — also are trying to twist the demonstrations being from being about racism.
