    That was "BEFORE" the playing of the National Anthem, not during, correct?

    Correct. If they can do what they want publically before the anthem, then Pence can do what he wants to after the anthem. Equal rights, correct?

    I think it is perfectly fine and well within their first amendment rights.

    The first two times Colin did it he sat on the bench. He then met with a veteran who encouraged him to kneel to show respect to the flag while also showing his displeasure at police violence. It’s not mocking and the people kneeling are still showing respect while protesting police violence.

    People get mad when blacks march, when BLM protests, when players kneel. People got mad when blacks sat on the bus, sat at lunch counters. Why don’t you tell black people how and when they should protest if you think you have all the answers.

    MY thoughts are that if you're ignorant of the fact that your words or actions are deeply offensive to someone - once it's known to you that it IS - the onus is on you whether you do it again.

    If you do or say something deeply offensive to say, someone's religion - if you KEEP DOING IT, THAT I can't overlook.
    I have a good friend who is a little short - and I used to make comments in what I thought was a friendly way to tease him about it.
    He mentioned to me that it bothered him. Twenty years on, I've never done it again.

    As someone observed - if you step on my foot, you might have made a mistake and it can be dismissed.
    If you KEEP STEPPING ON MY FOOT, I can't forgive it, because you KNOW it offends and choose to do it.

    I keep hearing how the players are saying that you don't understand what we feel and think -
    And it goes both ways - if you can't bring yourself to understand how this offends others, don't expect anyone to try to understand you.

    Its not like VP Pence is not connected to Indiana...
    So it’s been planned since May.

    Trump says in his tweet “I told him to leave if the kneeled.”

    He knew ahead of time they would kneel.

    He flew there that day.


    Using logic it is clear that it was a preplanned PR stunt and a waste of tax payer money

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Ok well using your logic blacks are saying it’s disrespectful the way we are treated by police.

    Yet you and many Americans have no problem ignoring that. Despite dashcam, video and other overwhelming evidence.
