Megan Rapinoe Says Protests “Always Worth It” As U.S. Soccer Removes Kneeling Ban


Megan Rapinoe has made headlines again for stating that protests are "always worth it."

Rapinoe's comments come as the U.S. soccer federation removes its ban on kneeling protests for the national anthem.

You'd think that athletes that represent the United States of America would be proud to stand for their flag and their anthem.

Even if they don't believe that these are unifying symbols, which the vast majority of Americans believe they are, they should be proud to represent a country that has afforded them incredible success.


Megan Rapinoe is known for kneeling during the national anthem.

During a game against Thailand in 2016, Rapinoe kneeled during the anthem.
