Charles Barkley thinks there’s nothing wrong with standing during the national anthem.
There used to be a time in America where everyone stood during the national anthem, but those days seem to be gone. Thursday night, every single NBA player on four teams took a knee during the anthem. While Barkley doesn’t have an issue with that, he wants people to know that it’s still OK to stand in America.
“The national anthem means different things to different people. I’m glad these guys are all unified. But if people don’t kneel, they’re not a bad person. I want to make that perfectly clear,” Barkley said Thursday night, according to The Spun.
He added that those who stand should “not be vilified.” You can watch his full comments below.
