The only difference between the National Football League and Pizza Place X is how famous the employees are and how much money they're paid.
"It's disgusting", Marshall told USA Today on Thursday.
Brown's treatment epitomizes why Colin Kaepernick first began to silently sit and kneel during the anthem to protest social injustices and police abuses that fly in the face of what the flag represents.
"Protest is an American tradition; by protesting we work to hold our country accountable to its highest ideals". That's not how things should work in my opinion anyway.
Meghan McCain defended her comments on the national anthem protests.
And know what's really ridiculous?
