Preston Brown, High School Coach, Teaches His Students To Disrespect The Flag
Woodrow Wilson High School Coach Preston Brown Teaches His Students To Disrespect The Flag
Camden, New Jersey – There’s a new outrage in the wake of NFL players and other celebrities protesting the American flag, the national anthem, and the heroes who defend it. Preston Brown, the head coach of the Woodrow Wilson Tigers football team, followed suit and took a knee during the national anthem.
He advised his players of his plan before their season opener this Sunday, 9/11/16. His team is made up of primarily young black students from a primarily young black student body. Unfortunately for them, they have a leader who not only believes the false narrative of Black Lives Matter, but he’s bringing the national anthem into it.
“I still love America. I still love our military, but this was our way of saying that things have to change in our country. There’s oppression, there’s social injustice, and these kids live it,” Coach Preston Brown said.
The “social injustice” that Coach Brown is referencing is the misinformation created by the Black Lives Matter movement, which began with the death of Travon Martin. This false narrative is nothing more than a sensationalist twisting of facts and misrepresentation of statistics. This isn’t the first time a school district has fallen into supporting Black Lives Matter. A Seattle elementary school is demonstrating support directly for the political group.
Thankfully, two students on the team had enough fortitude to stand up for what they believe in and did not cave to their coach’s example. One of the students who was brave enough to avoid the peer pressure stated: “I’ve always stood for the national anthem and I wasn’t going to let a little incident in the NFL change that.”
Members of the opposing team, Highland High School, vented their disappointment in their opponents actions. Highland’s senior running back, who is black, honored the heroes who defend our great country with his comment. “There are people out there every day risking their lives for us.”
The school district issued the following statement on the incident:
“The District supports standing for the flag, but this is a personal issue, and we strongly respect our students’ experiences and their exercising our country’s First Amendment rights. Whether our students choose to stand, kneel, or otherwise, we’re proud of their engagement with what is more broadly a very important social justice issue.”
Malcolm of “Malcolm Out Loud Talk” put it best with his theory of ‘The Beyonce Factor’. “We’re at the point now where singers, athletes, entertainers, YouTube stars, and so forth have hijacked the minds of millennials everywhere.”
