Tara talks, my thoughts on athletes who doesn’t salute America’s flag nor stand for the National Anthem. Well, I believe all Americans should salute the flag out of respect for America.. Nevertheless free people shouldn’t be force nor criticized for not standing for the National Anthem or for not saluting the flag.. Please keep in mind black/biracial Americans were slaves when American colonies were given their independence from Great Britain on July 4,1776…. Nonetheless black/biracial Americans loves and respect America…After all slaves helped in building America.
