I made the meme so I probably agree.
I'm incredulous that someone that wealthy and privileged can find reason to protest his country.
I doubt he'd be a millionaire in any other.


He wasn't protesting the country. He was protesting young black unarmed males being killed in the street by law enforcement.

Keep up ATA.

What does the national anthem have to do with that?

Was he also making a reasonable protest by wearing socks depicting police officers as pigs?

And most importantly he is wrong about what he is protesting; unarmed blacks are not more likely to be shot by police

Maybe, just maybe, he should have stood like a man to protest the grossly disproportionate number of blacks murdered by other blacks... a number which dwarfs the total number of blacks killed by the police (7,881 to 233 in 2016, the year Kap started his attention whoring demonstrations) and utterly destroys the actual number of those black males shot by police while unarmed (16... I'll say that again, 16 were unarmed in 2016.)
nypost.com...

This is a red herring protest intended initially to deflect on-field attention away from a QB who d-coordinators had long cracked the code on, morphed into an excuse for individualistic grandstanding by a group of millionares who are as far removed from the plight of the inner cities as the "elite" whites so many of them publicly ridicule while privately rubbing elbows with.

And I love the media and peoples claim this is not about protesting the flag or the country, just bad cops.

Lets see what Kap's original comment was on why he did this.


"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."


www.nfl.com...

But the media have to constantly cover this up because they realize hating the country is bad for most people, so they try to lie and make excuses that this is not what he said.

We come here not to praise Bundy, but to bury Kaepernick. Et tu, Bunde?

This doesn't seem to be going well for Nike.

Those women aren't American black males, so they have no concept of oppression. It's not like they have a massive number of social programs, scholarships and grants to help them go to college or learn a trade, a robust welfare system, the luxury to protest the very people tasked with maintaining law, order, and safety, or the potential to turn natural physical talents into million dollar paydays by playing children's games in organized professional leagues... therefore, they don't understand Kaepernick's struggle.

They're Asians. That's the minority it's OK to discriminate against, so no one will care. See - Harvard.

Your meme, which is sooo overly dramatic,(dare I say 'feels"?) would be pertinent if they were protesting against the military, but they are not, so it makes your little picture rather foolish, doesn't it?

Well, you either know what they are protesting about, or you don't get it.
enough said.

It doesn't matter what they're protesting. The manner of the protest sends that message.

Yes, it’s right above in Gramblers post. They hate the flag and what it represents, in Kaps own words. But go on pretending he didn’t say that. And go on pretending the police kill more people of color than other people of color do...

There is a third option... I know what they're protesting and think it's bullsnip.

Members can disagree without being disagreeable.
Let's be above that.
Eh?
