Women’s basketball star Brittney Griner made headlines in the summer of 2020 by asking the WNBA to stop playing the national anthem before games. She said it didn’t represent black Americans.
Now, after spending time in a Russian prison, she says she realizes her mistaken ways and is honoring the anthem and our flag.
We salute Ms. Griner’s refound patriotism. These days it takes a lot of courage and humility to admit the errors of your ways and to eschew woke anti-Americanism. Let’s hope this is the start of a trend.
