The great outcry against kneeling during the National Anthem is not about the flag. It’s about disdain for what is not “white”. It’s about not dealing with our country’s dark side of racial injustice and inequality. It’s about consenting to excessive force against people of color, especially Black America. It’s about our inability as people to truly care about what does not directly affect White America. It’s about a lack of true humanity and compassion.
