NFL players are protesting the national anthem because they want to show that they cannot tolerate a nation that supports racism. The movement was started by Coin Kaepernick, a player who chose to sit on the bench instead of stand for the anthem about 14 months ago.

Other players decided to follow suit to show their support for the African American population and stand against the evils of racism. There have been mixed reactions from fans. Some think the protest is disrespectful while others support the decision.
