The debate over NFL players "taking a knee" during the national anthem needs context. Teams stayed in the locker room during the anthem until the 2009 season, when it appears the US Department of Defense began paying teams for patriotic displays during the pregame ceremonies.

More important, by making the issue about black Americans vs. the police (or President Trump), millionaires who've gotten rich playing a kids' game -- something that could only happen in America -- are drawing attention away from the real problems destroying our cities.
