    no, kneeling for the national anthem is not wrong at all.

    And no, the Confederate flag has a whole lot more meaning than just slavery attached to it, so know what you are talking about before being so stupid.

    I don't expect a black person to honor the national anthem for when it was written, a declaration of independence of a nation where slavery of blacks were legal. So why would "chills" go up their spine when hearing it. The confederate flag is an old southern symbol of anti-government sediment and oppression of slaves, that's all it is. To put a different spin on it is just wrong. So it is hypocritical. Why would a black person honor Thomas Jefferson?? He owned 600 slaves, had a 6 children with one of them. So the declaration of Independence was to declare freedom from British rule and to continue to own slaves and abuse them. If blacks were to honor anyone, they would want to honor the Quakers, that believed that slavery to be wrong and thus way ahead of the curve.

    Confederate flags are just an old symbol for an old institution. The anthem is the current symbol of respect for our country. There is a big difference. (imo)

      but to a black person who knows real history the national anthem meant only a declaration of a nation full of white people and blacks in slavery, so I don't blame them for not honoring it.
