Unlike others, some people take the respect of the national symbols very seriously and they are even ready to take drastic measures to prove it. After the huge NFL scandal, America is clearly more divided than before. Some people are just against the unity among all Americans and they just hate the tradition. On the other hand, some people still love their country deep in their hearts and they want to keep the respect of the national symbols alive.
A Chattanooga man has been reportedly fired from his job after sitting during the national anthem at an event.
Fox17.com reported: Tyler Chancellor worked for 9Round, a kickboxing gym in Chattanooga. His termination comes during a national conversation about respect for the American Flag.
The company said Chancellor was in training to become a coach at their gym. He said he’d only been on the payroll for a little more than a week before the owner told him not to come back.Tyler Chancellor says he was invited to sit with his coworkers in the VIP section of the Camp Jordan arena Saturday. On Monday, he said his employer fired him because he sat during the National Anthem.
“Me being a minority in this society, I chose to stand up for what I believe in- well not actually stand up, but sit down for what I believe in,” Chancellor said.
What do you think about this? Do you support their decision to fire this man who disrespected the national anthem? In the world of sports, there’s no place for politics. The national anthem is way above sports, politics, culture- it represents everything- it represents the American nation with all of its parts and components.
