One College President Is Standing Up For American Values, Even At Expense Of Sports Program

Several college basketball players were suspended by their school for kneeling during the national anthem.

President David Olive, who is white, said that he had told players to stop kneeling during the anthem in protest. When they continued, he decided to suspend everyone involved, per ESPN.

That forced the team to forfeit its game against Reinhardt on Thursday night.

Members of the Bluefield College basketball team, which plays in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics league, were suspended by school president David Olive ahead of a game Thursday once he learned that the players had been kneeling for the anthem after being specifically told not to, according to the New York Post.
