Rules can be broken. Especially when an American champion feels so strongly as White Privileged American! I had tears of hope when I heard him!👏👏👏👏

Bravo for this brave America. I’m pretty sure he know backlash will come his way from the racist portion of America and say he’s disrespecting the flag as a deflection from the real issues.

Trump doesn't place his hand over his heart most of the time, it's not an issue unless someone else does it. Kneel on!

"Fuck racism, fuck the mistreatment of anyone and fuck smoke and mirrors"... said that proudly from two feet! It's ok to kneel if you like in protest but it's just as ok to stand and protest, I prefer standing as to help clarify my message rather than cause unneeded controversy
