    Find out why disrespecting the American flag is so controversial


    The American flag represents the most free nation in the history of the world and that alone should be something to stand for.

    Joy Villa breaks down how the NFL’s kneeling controversy has been misguided, misdirected, and all-around ungrateful.

    Joy is always right on the money she is a great singer and so pretty it's great to see some people still get what respect is. Looked beautiful during the grammy awards.

    Firstly we are not a dictatorship where people have to devote themselves to the flag or country. Authoritarian regimes do that. It should not matter if someone stands or sits for the national anthem.

    Secondly, we aren’t the most free nation in the world. Perhaps that was true in 1917, but not in 2017. But most Americans believe that because they’ve never stepped foot outside of North America.

    Last, you cannot expect a group of individuals to celebrate a nation that has oppressed them for hundreds of year. Some black people do stand for the flag and others choose not. The ones who choose not to have a damn good reason for doing so.
