He’s not a sheep and they hate him for that.
Stephon Tuitt of the Pittsburgh Steelers recently stated that he will not be taking a knee during the national anthem.
He wrote a statement saying the reason why he will not be taking a knee and added, “screw anybody who have a problem with that.”
Also I’m not kneeling for the flag and screw anybody who have a problem with that. My grandmother was a immigrant from the Carribean and age worked her ass off to bring 20 people over the right way. She had no money and educated herself to be a nurse. She living good now.

Many athletes have kneeled during the anthem, and for someone to say that he will not be participating is a huge feat. He will no doubt receive tons of backlash, but he will be standing up for what he thinks is right.
This is what America is all about. Being pressured to do something you don’t want to do is not what this country was founded on.
