I don’t think the real question is “Why is everyone upset about the Betsy Ross Flag?” It’s “Why is anyone upset about the Betsy Ross Flag?”

Colin Kaepernick has the right to be critical of the flag; Nike has the right to pull a product featuring the flag. These right were secured by forces operating under the flag so the rest of us have the right to think this is all much ado about nothing.
