The California NAACP is calling for the end of the national anthem before sporting events. The tradition began in major league baseball during World War I and quickly spread to all other sports after World War II. But with so many athletes kneeling, some are asking what "The Star-Spangled Banner" has to do with football—or any sporting event. Others believe the anthem is an important patriotic ritual honoring those who sacrificed their lives so we can watch a game. What do you think? 🇺🇸 🏈
