Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, knelt and linked arms with his NFL players as a peaceful protest in response to President Donald Trump’s criticism or players who disrespect the U.S.A last Sunday in Arizona for their game against the Cardinals.
Social media enthusiasts were fast enough to capture that a twitter was posted from the Cowboy’s official account with a caption, “#FootballsFamily”.
On the same night, American Idol winner, Jordin Sparks sang the National Anthem but did not forget to include a Proverb 31:8-9 written on her hand stating, “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
Trump, ignited another controversy this weekend when he said wanted those who participated to be fired. This protest against the treatment of blacks in the USA which was started by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernich last 2016 preseason.
He said, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say: ‘Get that son of a b—- off the field right now.”
Last Monday, regarding being unpatriotic for kneeling during national anthem Trump tweeted, “It is about respect for our country, flag and national anthem. NFL must respect this!”
