A Ridgecrest football team is going viral after their pregame display. The Sherman E. Burroughs High School Burros took the field Friday night with each player holding an American Flag.The video posted to Facebook shows the players carrying the flags as “God Bless the USA” played in the background.The video has more than 4 million views since Friday.Many of those who shared the video with 23ABC said they were proud of the young men for their display of unity and Good Morning America also shared the video.Although the video has sparked some controversy since then because others who have never even heard of Ridgecrest claim that it was wrong to do that and claim racism.One persons Facebook comment was “Would have respected them more if they had also taken a knee with the flag.” Not impressed by this obvious “optics” only pic.Are there any students colored in this schools? “What about the faculty?” another comment was, “This school is located near and funded by a military base therefore diversity is not high on the list of this ultra conservative privileged school.” But Ridgecrest citizens and students who attended Burroughs were quick to defend themselves and prove that what the players did was an amazing thing.
