Conservatives have long criticized Black America for not getting over slavery. They believe that racism is over in the United States. They don't seem to understand that it's not just Black America getting fed up with the way things are going, but those who are Brown as well.
Native Americans have long faced oppression. They are often struggling to maintain the land that they've owned before the colonial rule.
Colin Kaepernick started a movement. Ever since he decided to not stand for the national anthem, many others decided to find a seat. Many others refuse to stand for the national anthem and pledge because of the country's oppression of people of color.
A young teen had her grades lowered because she refused to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance at a Lower Lake, California school.
Leilani Thomas won't say the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag. She is Native American and argues the stars and stripes aren't hers.
"It's the reason, because of the history that happened her. On my land. My people's land," said Thomas in an interview with a local news agitator. "So I'm not going to stand for the people who did this to my people".
Leilani and her friend have used their right to protest since school has started. They refuse to stand for the pledge.
When the girls got their grades Friday, their participation scores were docked from a five to a three because they refuse to stand. Leilani recorded her teacher's explanation in class.
"Here's the deal. If you really, really have an argument and feel so strongly about, then I need to see it written out -- your argument -- in an essay form," the teacher is heard saying. "Like, why? Why, because her'es the thing; those people, they're not alive anymore. Your ancestors."
The Lake County school district superintendent said that Leilani and her friend have a right to protest.
The superintendent said that, "they shouldn't lose their First Amendment rights when they walk in the door. We are dealing with the teacher on this."
What repercussions the teacher will have after this matter?
Will conservatives rally around the teacher and boycott the school?
Will the teacher get an interview on Fox News or an agitator's program?
Obviously, the teens will get death threats and taunts of being a "traitor" and part of a "murder movement". They often call #BlackLivesMatter, anti-cop, anti-White and a murder group.
