Mike Evans the wide receiver for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers refused to stand for the national anthem recently but has had a change of heart. He has apologized to this country’s servicemen and women and to the fans. He says that in the future he will stand for the pledge in honor of our troops and that he was really objecting to Donald Trump. Considering that Donald Trump wants to stop illegal aliens from taking jobs away from black citizens, rebuild their communities and offer school choice, allowing blacks to get a better education for their children, it’s hard to fathom why they consider Trump to be a racist.
“I want to start by apologizing to all the U.S. military members, their families, and the fans who I offended by my actions on Sunday. It was never my intention as I have tremendous respect for the men and women who serve our country.
“I have very strong emotions regarding some of the many issues that exist in our society today. I chose to sit as an expression of my frustration towards this year’s election. It was very personal for me, as it was for so many Americans.”
“With that being said, I will not sit again during the National Anthem because I want to focus my efforts on finding more effective ways to communicate my message and bring about change by supporting organizations and movements that fight for equal rights for minorities.”
