    Kneel for the cross?
    I'm Jewish, so I have serious issues with that idea.

    Stand for the flag?
    I grew up with radicals and communists, they taught me that I don't have to stand if I don't want to.

    I sat all through 7th grade in protest of the inclusion of the words "under God" in the Pledge. My small-town teacher thought I was weird. Then we moved, and the Pledge was said while I was changing for PE, so it didn't matter anymore. Later schools didn't say it at all. I still have issues with the Pledge in particular.

    Until I get off my probationary contract, I will stand, but I say watermelon, watermelon instead of the words

    Oh, yeah, I meant to also mention that at least two of the members of KISS are Jewish too, so I don't think they will be kneeling for any cross either.

    And everybody knows that KISS stands for Knights In Satan's Service.

    I have to ask, do you understand what the protests are actually about, why players are taking a knee? I assure you it has nothing to do with the military. But I would really like to hear from you what you think the protests are about.

    Well, you never know.
    Wouldn't be the first time humans got something really wrong...
    (ex. Flat Earth, Earth center of Universe, Earth on a turtle/etc...and so on)

    IF you believe in that beginning context, that is...
    Scientists say one thing...
    Others say otherwise

    So many choices
    Even the scientists aren't fully correct...yet.

    But it's a either way or all ways
    They all have something to consider and learn from

    That's not really true. I'm 42, and never in my lifetime have my personal rights or freedoms been threatened by another country or organization.
