The NAACP is slamming the NFL for prohibiting players from kneeling during the national anthem. The civil rights organization released a statement saying that instead of coming together to address an issue that disproportionately plagues African-Americans, NFL owners have chosen to silence players. The statement said protest is an American tradition, and noted that black men were almost three times more likely to be killed by police brutality than white men. The NFL on Wednesday unanimously approved a new policy requiring players on the field to stand during the national anthem.
