Priorities, people

43.1 million Americans live in poverty, which means that they live in a household with an income below their relative poverty threshold.1

42 million Americans struggle with hunger, including 13 million children and 5.4 million senior citizens.2

52 million Americans have pre-existing conditions that would make it difficult for them to get healthcare if the Affordable Care Act is repealed.3

43 children are diagnosed with cancer every day, and the average age of diagnosis is six years old.4

42,826 Americans took their own lives in 20145, and 15,872 Americans were killed in homicides that same year.6

564,708 Americans were homeless in 2015.7

453,000 American veterans were unemployed in 2016.8

But let’s get more upset about NFL players who won’t stand up during the National Anthem than any of these things, especially when many of us don’t stand up in our living rooms during the anthem.

P.S. Pages 62 and 63 of the NFL rule book don’t have anything to do with the National Anthem. Educate yourselves. Do your own research. Stop spreading misinformation.
