HuffPost: Athletes Not Kneeling for National Anthem ‘Are Standing for White Supremacy’


On Monday, HuffPost’s Jesse Benn wrote an article entitled, “White Athletes Still Standing For The Anthem Are Standing For White Supremacy.” Ironically, he published the article with a picture of the Cleveland Browns, showing some kneeling and others standing. In the center of the picture, a black athlete stood for the anthem. According to Benn’s reasoning, he too must have stood for “white supremacy.”

“See, for white athletes the anthem and American flag do represent freedom, liberty and whatever other amorphous American values one might ascribe to these symbols,” Benn noted. (What a patriotic sentence!) “So, from their view, kneeling would be disrespectful to the privileges a white supremacist nation affords them.”

The enlightened HuffPost writer summarized the argument against kneeling this way: “Kneeling during the anthem disrespects the flag and the soldiers who fought for your right to protest and blah blah blah patriotism!” Yeah, Benn. Teach those ignorant rubes! READ MORE
