Colin Kaepernick purports to be standing up, for oppressed Black Americans in this country, by sitting down or kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem. The logic of disrespecting the flag to draw attention to his cause eludes most of us.
Notwithstanding, Gabrielle Union, Megan Rapinoe and Brandon Marshall (pictured above respectively) who have joined a growing number of people supporting Kaepernick’s cause, it still seems a futile and absurd endeavor. The problem for most of us is we have no idea what he is talking about.
Therefore it is time for Colin Kaepernick to enlighten America. He should produce a Black American who is oppressed in this country; tell us exactly who is oppressing that person and how.
No more generalized allegation. Specific people proactively oppressing a Black American. If Kaepernick knows of oppressed Black Americans and has evidence of it, he should have no trouble producing it.
If Kaepernick cannot do this, it is time for him to get off of his ass and respect the Flag of the United States of America.He need not apologize; just stop disrespecting the Flag.
