This is what people are saying is tone deaf. It is not disrespecting the flag. It is expressing your constitutional right to protest and your right to freedom of speech. This comment lessens what the players are doing, trying to spotlight the abuse black people suffer everyday.
you're wrong, my friend. if you don't respect the american flag, then you don't respect the actual country...the ONLY country in the world that allows you to speak freely. that's just the way it is.
