Different symbols mean different things to different people. Unfortunately, a symbol can become coopted to represent hate. So it was with the swastika, a symbol once used in Asia and the Americas but largely abandoned after becoming the emblem of the Nazi party in the early 20th century.

White supremacists in the United States also coopted symbols as emblems of their hate groups. One such symbol is the "Betsy Ross" flag. Created around the time of the American Revolution, it is now used as a symbol by some White supremacists like the Confederate battle flag.

"You have to stand proudly for the National Anthem and the NFL owners did the right thing if that's what they've done," Trump said in an interview with Fox News that aired earlier this morning.

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who last season sparked a conversation on systemic racism by kneeling during the playing of the national anthem, has filed a grievance with the NFL for collusion to keep him out of the league, according to his attorney, Mark Geragos.

Geragos released the following statement, which also called out President Donald Trump, who issued condemnations of Kaepernick's protest (and smaller sideline protests) in recent weeks via his Twitter account:
