Well I have to ask you then, what is the difference between Dick Gregory and Muhammed Ali, etc, versus Kaepernick? They all were/are saying the same exact things! Why was it okay for the others to say it - but not he? The U.S. is a free country and its citizens are all allowed to do this and speak their minds. Protests and being able to protest are what makes this country great.
With that said, I do have one main problem with what Kaepernick was doing - because he was doing it while at work and wearing the team's (and a NFL) uniform. So when he did that in that matter, there was a major difference there verses him being in street clothes and not at work. He was being paid a ton of money by his team (employer) when he did that while at work - and on TV for everybody to see. He made his team and the entire NFL look bad to many people. But even then, he still had a right to do that.
I've been saying it for years - that there is no need to play the National Anthem before a sporting event unless 2 different countries are playing in the event. If you don't play the song, then people like him can't protest against it. We all know what country we live it, it isn't needed to be played. Do you or your employer play the National Anthem before you start work everyday? 99.9% of all jobs in the U.S. don't, so why must sport teams have to do this before they start their work?
