The people that are so offended and apppalled by Mr. Kaebernick's protest. I 'd like to know if they are as outraged by all the senseless killing of minorities, all of the racial injustices in America, that people are okay with. We turn a blind eye to it and as long as it is not affecting us personally we avoid thinking , discussing , protesting , and doing a thing about it. Here is a man that is taking a non violent stand to bring attention to this horrible problem. He is not saying he does not love or respect his country or our flag,but the flag is supposed to be a symbol of freedom , equality, and justice for all !! Is that really what the flag stands for??? He is saying that it is hard to hear the song that says " The land of the Free and the home of the brave." Because it's not true!!!!! He is truly being brave. Please support him for stepping out and taking a stand . Let's not let them ostracize him let's support him . Mr. Wade said it best "Enough is Enough" What will we do today to contribute to change no mater how small. ❤️

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has set the sports take world on fire with his comments about why he plans to sit during the national anthem before games. It’s sparked a firestorm of debate, and now, musical artist Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles, has also chimed in.

The “Mr. Wade” Knowles is referring to here is Dwyane Wade, whose cousin was killed in a shooting in Chicago recently. The Chicago Bulls guard was part of the group of players who stood up before the ESPYS to speak about the police brutality problem in this country. Meanwhile, rookie linebacker Myke Tavarres of the Philadelphia Eagles is also joining in on the protest.

This entire discussion will become very interesting from a TV production standpoint, if once the regular season starts, not only more players refuse to stand, but people in the stands do, too.
