NFL players’ protest is a miserable failure
The flag and national anthem represent a variety of meanings to a variety of people. Many people see the NFL players taking a knee as a protest against something that is extremely important to them, which totally clouds the image of what is actually being protested against. Simply put, the professional athletes are hurting their own cause. Being a child of the ’50s and ’60s, I lived in an era of protest, so to speak. This particular protest is the most ineffective and failed protest I have ever witnessed, and needs a different platform.
