Kneeling during National Anthem

You would think if she was so upset she would not want to represent the same country by whom she is feeling attacked.

But while Kaepernick and his colleagues have been lauded by some members of the press, and defended by others-even in some cases financially rewarded for their principled stands-students who choose to replicate Kaepernick's protests on high-school campuses are facing harsh punishments.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick swept the nation by storm when he made a decision to kneel during the national anthem as a protest of racial oppression and inequality in the United States.

"I felt it was the right thing to do", Rapinoe said to ESPN. He didn't know in advance that six or seven of local football players planned to take a knee during the anthem last Friday night. "But I think, definitely, we'll see a few guys in the National Basketball Association doing the same thing".

"I think he cares about some real, legitimate issues that have to be talked about", said the president during a news conference. Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry said during an CNBC interview earlier this month that he applauded Kaepernick for taking his stand.

Hypocritical is not even the proper term describing the National Football League owners, as they immediately will suspend players for just about any reason if it is detrimental to the bottom line of the team. I, for one, will boycott every sport and sponsor, and not support any politician who does not distinctively honor those who have sacrificed for freedoms for all Americans.

Ohio poll: Trump has narrow lead over Clinton
OH went for President Barack Obama over former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney in 2012 by approximately 51-48 percent. Quinnipiac, a week earlier, put Trump ahead by 1 percentage point, and the margin of error again was 3.5 percent.

Kaepernick has also said that his intent is not to insult the military, according to the USA Today.

He brought up police brutality. This is a stance Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and other National Basketball Association players have all agreed with and support.

I say this because it is one of the more prominent stories that showcases the exact message that Kaepernick is trying to enlighten people about, but there are obviously many more.

But it is important to remember that Kaepernick and the other athletes are exercising their right of free speech.

Kaepernick is acting in defense of black men killed by police officers in recent months and years. "That is the issue that needs to be addressed, and policies need to be addressed to change that".
