Navy taking action against Sailor who sat out the National Anthem

Young lady,

Your "people" need to have each others’ backs. Until the black community stops tearing itself apart with looting, drug dealing, abortion, and homicide, shut your mouth and stand up for the Star Spangled Banner!

The sailor, who is in training at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida, posted a video of her sitting during during the anthem at a colors ceremony, saying she won’t stand until the U.S. proves "that they’ve got my back as a black woman." The sailor’s action, which sparked a firestorm online, was in solidarity with NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who said he’ll continue taking a knee during "The Star-Spangled Banner" until people of color are treated more fairly.

The controversy highlights the limits placed on troops’ free speech rights, a freedom enshrined in the Bill of Rights that is limited for those to protect the cohesion of military commands and to bar the military hierarchy from political partisanship.
“We have identified the Sailor and her chain of command was made aware of the video,” said Lt. Cmdr. Kate Meadows, a spokeswoman for Naval Education and Training Command. “Appropriate administrative actions are pending.
