Do you honestly stand?

When you hear the anthem played on the television do you stand or is that a perfect time to go get a snack before the game starts?

No, I've never stood at home. Only if I'm at a venue.

I usually stay seated. And right now even if I was at an event I would probably not stand. I'm not proud of this country.

I don't stand at home, but I do when I go to games. I stand for the Canadian and American anthems.

I don't stand at home or in public. I don't recite the pledge or participate in any other type of America worship.

Of course 99% of people don't stand. They don't even pay attention to it I am sure. I don't watch football but I've been to people's houses for a game (if it is unavoidable, lol.) The anthem is time to grab snacks, go to the bathroom, settle in to your spot. This is pretend outrage about "patriotism" but it's really that people are mad because the football players are protesting when many fans think they own them, and therefore the players don't have the right to see things differently, or have opinions about how black people are treated.

I do not stand at home. I do stand if I am at a venue. However, I support another persons right to not stand and do not think it is disrespectful.
