“They should have the right to any freedom of expression. I understand where the players are coming from, and I respect what they’re doing. As far as his Presidency, it goes to show how a white man with power and money by instigating oppression and diminishing the value of our first amendment.”

“F*ck Donald Trump. F*ck the national anthem. I think the players need to be treated better in terms of equality. It comes down to the fact its not about football, it’s about politics and race. There’s other sh*t going on. I think the national anthem is overused, I don’t think it should be as big a deal as it is. There’s definitely a division and it’s creating more division between the population.”

“Because it was a black person who went against him, Trump reacted. People didn’t care about that. It was a black man kneeling, if they were white, who knows? They felt like their people were being oppressed, they weren’t going against him.”

“Trump is a piece of shit, first of all. At the same time, I don’t feel those people sitting down goes against patriots. When they sit down for the national anthem, I don’t see it as disrespect. I feel they’re trying to bring to light the issues in America right now.”
