The NFL this season has been littered with controversy. Most notably the National Anthem. Many African American players have chosen to kneel during the anthem as a way to protest color inequality in the United States. This has obviously caused plenty of problems for the league. Thousands have weighed in across social media, some saying this is a good thing for the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

Kneeling for the National Anthem on the #NFL field good.
Honoring fallen police officers on the #NFL field bad.

Colin Kaepernick is one of the athletes that kneels during the anthem.

Others believe it is disrespectful to kneel during the anthem that represents all of the people who have died for this country, and those who fight for it.
