Americans and Their Flags

There are people that are kneeling during the national anthem. People are angry at Kaepernick because he is disrespecting the flag.

Dear Future President,   

    Colin Kaepernick was kneeling during the National Anthem. I think that it was disrespectful . He said it was because of “ black lives matter”. Some people say it wasn't “ disrespect” to the national anthem. Here is how there are wrong.  Even some marines  said that it was disrespect. HE was trying to show respect to others by kneeling. It makes no sense.

You could say that it is wrong if people are kneeling during the national anthem.  I believe that he and everyone was trying to show that they want cops to stop shooting African American people. People believe that  it was wrong doing. I believe that it could be shown in a different way. Like Kaepernick could post something  online that says "black lives matter and these cops are wrong,"  and say how he feels about what happened.  

Could you say how they could have shown it in a different way?
