In response to the letter by Kenneth L. Johnson ("I will no longer watch football," The Daily News, Oct. 12): First Mr. Johnson, the kneeling to the national anthem is by no means a disrespect to this country or the military.
It's about the people of a different race that built this country, and has gone to war for this country. Don't forget, we were bought and brought to this country, bled for this country and cried for this country.
Millions have died for this country and we still fight nonviolently for this country, every day, while ignorant people tend to forget.
The kneeling is not only for the injustice that's occurring today, it's also for past injustice that Mr. Johnson and most of white America just wants to forget about.
Well, we can't. We live it still, every day! Respect the flag, like it respects you. Enough said.
