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. ❤️
Tina Lawson, mother of Beyoncé and Solange Knowles, posted a photo of her television where San Francisco 49er's quarterback Colin Kaepernick's recent protest was being discussed. Kaepernick sat during the National Anthem of his team's weekend game, Lawson wrote in her post this was a "brave" action by the QB.
Kaepernick had said of his actions he wouldn't stand for a flag that "oppresses black people and people of color."
Lawson wrote of Kaepernick, "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!!" She went on to say he was truly being brave and that people should be supporting him.
