This is not awesome.  It's monkey see monkey do.  Those who are role models ought not be modeling unpatriotic behavior for children. A ten year old is not able to comprehend the issues.

I think the pledge is ridiculous.

But I would prefer it if he just walked away, or shrugged his shoulders and made funny faces at the camera.

Kneeling or some other form of serious protest gives credibility and gravity to the pledge, which it does not deserve.

Patriots don't pledge allegiance to the government.

Are you old enough to remember this, Rabbit?

Defending the rights of his fellow citizens is not patriotic?

You and I define patriotism VERY differently.

Yes it is, but is that really what they are doing here?

To the black people who are not treated equally, yes. To me, who recognizes that just about every group except Christian white men are at a disadvantage in many aspects of our society, from criminal justice to the labor system, yes.

The ONLY way you can see that kid not standing up for equal rights and his fellow citizen is if you think everyone in this country is treated equally.

Are you making that claim?

A 10 year old child refusing taking a knee during the pledge is not a patriotic act.
