    I will add that, there is NOTHING inherently "racist" in acknowledging that slaves existed.

    To claim that the protests are over the wording of the verses of a poem that the anthem is derived from...verses that NOBODY has ever sung at a sporting event I've been to refutes what Kapernick said was the reason he wouldn't stand for the anthem...that police brutalized black Americans. THAT is why he protested. I'd bet every dollar I own that if you'd asked the entire NFL players community prior to this becoming an issue...not ONE of them would have even known that there WERE more verses to that poem!

    I certainly didn't.

    In any event, there is nothing racist in that additional verse. It simply states "slaves". It doesn't say that blacks are genetically inferior, etc.
