Crossroads: A deep dive into the 'Take a Knee' controversy

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- University of Houston-Downtown professor Dr. Erlanger Turner discusses the controversial "take a knee" movement.

Colin Kaepernick sparked a national debate when he started the movement over a year ago.

For many, the question of rather the protest is disrespectful to the American flag or a peaceful stance against social injustice and police brutality against African-Americans, is still up for debate.

Dr. Turner explains why he believes the protest is not about disrespecting the flag.
