Post Note: “Standing for the anthem won’t help veterans. Jobs, homes, and healthcare will”

In Post Notes, I add some additional thoughts or context to a blog post I’ve previously written. The original post can be found here.

  • I didn’t get to touch on it too much in the article, but it’s amazing to me that many white people expect black people to have the exact same feelings toward the United States as they do. History matters.

  • The folks over at Media Matters created a montage of Fox News hosts sympathizing with Nazi protestors but getting angry at NFL players kneeling. It’s worth watching.
  • I started writing this piece awhile ago, but I realized that I should have posted it on Veteran’s Day. Missed opportunity there.
  • The Trump administration recently ended a program using therapy dogs to help veterans deal with PTSD.
