It Was Never About The Flag

The response to an act of solidarity in the 2020 NFL season opener shows the real outrage behind player protests.

Prior to the opening kickoff of the 2020 NFL Season, team members from the Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans met in the center of the field in an act of solidarity, locking arms in silence to bring awareness to social injustices.

Only there wasn’t silence at all. The limited number of fans in the stadium chose to start booing their own defending Super Bowl Champions in response.

Colin Kaepernick, former NFL quarterback and activist, began these waves of boos when he knelt during the playing of the national anthem in 2016. Critics claimed that he “disrespected the flag.”

So what was the reasoning this time? The act of solidarity by the Chiefs and the Texans was supposed to be in pure silence.

That’s because it was never about the flag to begin with.

Kaepernick’s initial message behind kneeling during the anthem had nothing to do with disrespecting the flag, yet his opposers and critics would love for you to believe it was. However, the response to last week’s act of solidarity further proved, from the other side of the argument, that it still has nothing to do with the flag. It’s simply about selfishly avoiding the hard conversations with little to no care of whose lives are negatively affected in the process.

There’s an immense double standard that has brewed far too long in America. It’s okay to protest when you don’t get something of material value that you want. It’s quite alright to protest when you don’t want to wear a mask during a pandemic. But, don’t you dare protest about racial injustices. A league that is well over two-thirds black has been told, without outright saying it, that its perfectly okay to make statements and wear initials on their uniforms for the duration of an entire season when their multi-billionaire league owners pass away, but never for even a few seconds when its to promote racial equality and social justice.
