Thanks for reading and for adding your voice. I really appreciate it!
I think that’s an interesting idea. Obviously, with how deeply-held that tradition is in our sports culture, most people have met that assertion with great opposition. I think it’s at least worth taking a pause to consider.
Ultimately, I do think it is a good thing, in general, to have civic pride. I’m not sure that I would support doing away with the National Anthem in sports altogether. However, I support these protests because I don’t think civic pride should supersede standing up for justice.
Thanks again for your response!
