    More and more sports players are kneeling in support of Kaepernick, and I can see why.

    Yeah, the right wants the freedom to force everyone to be exactly like them.
    And, just to cut off the looming “but white people”, blacks are 12.7% of the US population. They are killed by cops at pretty much four times the rate whites are killed by cops. That’s the lowball number, btw. Some cities don’t separate reports by race, so it’s hard to figure any exact numbers.
    So claiming the group that’s over 70% of the population is killed “in the same numbers” as the group that is less than 15% is actually admitting there’s a HUGE PROBLEM.
    It’s just a transparent attempt to cover it over with ignorance.

    Sure, they have a right to sit or kneel during the playing of the national anthem. I also have a right to boycott those teams who have such players. I will also boycott the sponsors of games involving such teams. When you lose friends in combat, you don’t have a lot of tolerance or sympathy for people like Kaepernick.

    or, you COULD reflect on the folly of said war (I lost some in combat also) and wonder where this world is headed

    It’s called Fake Outrage…people getting outraged for stupid causes. Put your outrage energy into more productive things like…how about all those innocent black children killed by gunfire in the hoods? Anybody a taker…..anybody.???…yeah…cricket sounds

    Something tells me your not much of a sports fan anyway so I don’t think your boycott means much. But feel free to do so.

    It is my first amendment right to sit, kneel, stand or rant during the National Anthem. It is not your first amendment right to make me sit, kneel, stand or rant during the National Anthem. It is my right to be as respectful or disrespectful to the flag as I choose. that is what freedom is. It is not my first amendment right to make you respect or disrespect the flag as I choose.
    Ranting about the position of someone else’s body during a song does not mean you get to exercise your second amendment rights if they are not doing it to your liking. I know how you gun clingers like to think the Bill of Rights is a list, and if your first amendment doesn’t work you go to the second. But is it really worth is to show how free you are by limiting other’s freedoms?

    " When you lose friends in combat, you don’t have a lot of tolerance or sympathy for people like Kaepernick."


    So, the friends you lost in combat died for the right of police to shoot unarmed citizens who are black?


    Sounds like those friends were Confederate soldiers.


    And we also shouldn’t forget that Trump lost “hundreds of friends” in the 9/11 attacks.
    Oddly enough, he was never seen at a single funeral.

    Actually, I’m retired military, I have lost friends in combat, and I support the freedom to point out the problems in our society. Indeed, I consider it a responsibility to point out the problems in our society. Kneeling during the national anthem in order to make this point seems an effective statement.

    The founding fathers didn’t fight and die for the rights of every citizen of this country to be told we have to stand for nationalistic symbolism.

    This is just another version of Republican BS. “Love it or leave it”. We saw it after Vietnam, 9-11, now anytime some one or group stands up or sits to point out a societal issue- the Right Wing starts their Un-American chant.
    Go ahead -start another war in the Middle East. I’m sure another 4-5,000 young Americans will be happy to die for your jingoist bullshit.

    i would be a lot more sumpathetic to these millionaires if they put their money where their mouth is. at least poor colin was shamed into saying he would donate a bit of his riches. has he yet?

    The VAST majority of Americans love their country and have little tolerance for malcontents. Especially those who use celebrity and meaningless gestures to make their point. NFL ratings are slipping, if it keeps up the 49ers may not be able to afford little Colin and his opinion. Would serve him right.

    @Mr Blawt

    They certainly did! Little Colin gets paid very well and if his boss says stand, he’ll stand or not get paid. Sadly, the owners of the 49ers haven’t shown they have the sense to do what’s right.
