Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick takes a knee during the national anthem in San Francisco last year. We noticed, but very few players joined him. Not many players seemed to care. He can’t get a job in the NFL now, and very few have said much about that either.
But the president says he wants that peaceful protest to stop, says those players should be fired if they take a knee during the anthem and calls those players a name I never thought I’d live long enough to hear a president say and now everybody cares.
Donald Trump has said he supports a peaceful protest because it’s an American’s right. But not this protest, and there’s the problem. Any protest that you don’t agree with, is a protest that should be stopped.
Martin Luther King should have marched across a different bridge.
Young black Americans should’ve gone to a different college and found a different lunch counter. And college kids in the 60’s had no right to protest an immoral war.
I served in the military during the Vietnam War and my foot hurt too. But I served anyway.
My best friend in high school was killed in Vietnam and Carroll Meyer will be 18 years old forever and he did not die so that you could decide who is a patriot and who loves America more.
The young black athletes are not disrespecting America or the military by taking a knee during the anthem, they are respecting the best thing about America. It’s a dog whistle to the racist among us to say otherwise.
They, and all of us, should protest how black Americans are treated in this country, and if you don’t think white privilege is a fact, you don’t understand America.
The comedian Chris Rock says it best: There’s not a white man in America who would trade places with him, and he’s rich.
It has not gone unnoticed that Trump has spoken out against the Mexicans that want to come to America for a better life, against the Muslims, and now against the Black Athlete.
But he says nothing, for days, about the white men who marched under a Nazi flag in Charlottesville, except to remind us that there were good people there. And when he finally tried to say the right thing, not one of them was called a S.O.B., or should be fired.
We have white men in America that wave the Nazi flag and the Confederate flag and he’s concerned about taking a knee because it disrespects this flag.
We use that flag to sell mattresses and beer – we wear it as a swimsuit; we wrap our bald heads in a flag bandanna and stick it in our pants because we disrespect that flag everyday.
Maybe we all need to read the constitution again. There has never been a better use of pen to paper.

Our forefathers made freedom of speech the first amendment. They listed 10, and not one of them says you have to stand during the anthem, and I think those men respected the country they fought for a founded a great deal more than the self-proclaimed patriots who are simply hypocrites, because they want to deny the basic freedom of this great country, a country they supposedly value and cherish so much.
