This statement goes both ways:
Stop centering the conversation on the protest itself.
There's a million ways to behave during the National Anthem but if we keep treating it like a goal instead of a means to an end, nothing changes. The nation is talking about the unnecessary loss of black life now. Stopping police brutality and institutional oppression is infinitely more important than who is standing, sitting, kneeling, lying down, while a song plays.
All I'm saying is, don't fall for the okiedoke. They want you to worry about the act of kneeling and forget why you're kneeling.
