Fair and equal treatment
What’s so hard to understand? It’s not about the flag. It’s about what every American should expect – fair, equal treatment. When any American believes, correctly or incorrectly, that they are not receiving fair and equal treatment, that’s a problem – a problem too many Americans would rather ignore/deny than address.
If their beliefs are true, the problems need corrected. If they are not, there is still work to do. If taking a knee is what it takes to jar America out of its complacency so be it. What’s more important, how we treat a cloth symbol or how America treats a human being?
