  • President Herbert Hoover signed a bill on March 4, 1931, officially adopting The Star Spangled Banner as the national anthem of the United States of America. The United States Code 36 U.S.C. Section 301 states that during a rendition of the anthem, all present should stand at attention. Note that the text of this law is suggestive and not regulatory in nature. Traditionally, the American flag, national anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance are treated with a high level of respect and patriotism by young and old. In 2016, American NFL football player Colin Kaepernick began sitting (and later kneeling) during the National Anthem to protest racial injustices and police brutality in the United States. His actions have sparked controversy all across this nation. Some Americans have even refused to watch the games and purchase NFL goods. In less than 250 words write a short essay answer to the following question: Should a private American organization, such as the National Football League (NFL), implement a policy mandating their employees to stand during the anthem?
