Wednesday the NFL announced a new Anthem Policy, which requires all players and team personnel to stand during the National Anthem. Once this policy was released a lot of people we unhappy. Especially the players and coaches, because if they don't play by the rules, there will be fines involved.
Thursday Steve Kerr is gearing up fro Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals, and of course the media wanted to hear his thoughts. And in AMAZING Steve Kerr fashion, he called the NFL out! (I love Steve!)
What are your thoughts about this new policy? Do you agree or disagree? Here are some thoughts, via Twitter.

If white NFL players decided to take a knee during the national anthem for soldiers who've died in combat or police who died in the line of duty, they'd all be heroes right now.
They'd never be fined. No new rules would be created. None of that.
The NFL is 80% black. Imagine if they all sat out a Sunday or two...— Travon Free (@Travon) May 23, 2018

Doubt anyone will tell him to “stick to basketball.”
Respect to him for using his white privilege to speak truth to power. pic.twitter.com/neFxeadd9U
