I am going to take this round and have it as an opening. I would like to start off by stating the rules....

1.) respect the opponents beliefs.
2.) you are not allowed to bring up personal experiences.
3.) it is okay to talk about the black lives matter protest.

(I have nothing against colored people, I am just rotective over my country :)

Pro.... may the best win :)

I think most have turned the issue upside down and are missing the original message. It's about police brutality and a way to get us to come together and figure out ways to fix the broken system that has shown itself to be biased against people of color. This was never an issue of disrespecting the flag (which by the way is an inanimate object and therefore it cannot feel disrespect) nor was it a protest of our military ( the very idea of kneeling came from a military person). I was a means to bring attention to an issue (which worked because we are having this debate now).

This will be cool, I have actually been wondering what reason someone would have to kneel at the flag, considering many other nations would shoot you for doing such a thing. But I hope you guys can give some good arguments so I can finally see what the other side truly feel about this topic.
