I think kneeling is fine. I probably wouldn't give a shit but I have a problem when people that disagree are insinuated to be backwards redneck racists. Hence the criticism hurled at NASCAR. That makes me want to defend the people protesting the protest.

Not "real hard" to defend at all.

I think they should stand up salute the flag. How many have tried living in a different country? We're incredibly blessed and lucky to live here. Stand up and show some respect!
Or they could exercise the freedoms we have that make it the greatest country in the world.
They can and are. and I'm going to consider them ungrateful. Nothing is sacred to them

It's about as sacred as the napkins it's plastered on or boxers sweaty nuts dangle in with the flag on it. The whole thing is silly cherry picking by people who want something to complain about. I don't think kneeling is the best way to get their point across, but it clearly is working since so many people are talking about the topic at hand.
