America is truly changing.
For the first time, a majority of Americans support NFL players kneeling in protest of racial inequality, according to the results of a Yahoo News/YouGov poll released Thursday.
In the wake of nationwide demonstrations in support of Black Lives Matter and similar protests, a majority of Americans, 52 percent, now agree that it is “OK for NFL players to kneel during the national anthem to protest police killings of African Americans.”
Only 28 percent of Americans considered his actions “appropriate” in 2016.
In 2018, according to another Yahoo News/YouGov poll, only 35 percent agreed with Kaepernick’s right to protest.
As always, it should be noted that kneeling during the National Anthem was never about disrespect to the flag or military, but a protest to bring awareness to police brutality and systemic racism.
It took for George Floyd dying on camera for people to finally realize this.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
