It's a stupid song, get over it. Trump didn't gesture to the damned song and he's one step away from President so let it go. I am a Veteran of Color and I'll proudly say that nationalism is overrated and only shows how divided these states really are. So if you're that proud of the USA, trade your German made BMW for something shittier, oh, I mean more patriotic!

First, to all who have put their life on the line to protect the rights of people to disagree CIVILY, THANK YOU!! If you are in the Oxnard area, standing offer exists for a home cooked and something to wash it down.

Now, on to Kap. I do NOT support his message, but the freedom he has to protest his government is one of those inalienable rights. Like many other sports "stars" who use their podium to make a statement. And what, 5 days later, it's still top news and we are still discussing it. For the wrong reason, but still discussing it.

It may be too much credit, but kudos to him for having the courage of his convictions (however misguided they may be)

Exactly its his 1st amendment right to express his views however divergent from everyone else's.
and San Francisco police needs grow manly parts and get over it and stop asking for apologies.. everyone is entitled to the right to speak their mind
Lord knows maybe some of it may actually be correct.

Karpernick is a hypocrite because the NFL ( they just hired the police chief of Wash D.C. ) uses cops, ex-cops and private investigators to thwart; murder, rape, domestic abuse and assult investigations - and that hadn't prevented Kaepernick from choosing the NFL as a profession.
And if you don't think the NFL and cops thwart investigation, research Roethlisberger, Ray Rice.

Not to mention his own rape case...

I wonder if it was black oppression or police brutality that got him off with no charges on that one?

Or keeps a buffer between him and the public? I'm sure almost every day of his existence, he relies on law enforcement to keep his life semi-private...

Typical N. Cali anti-american sentiment......not everyone in N. Cali, but a higher percentage than elsewhere.

ps.....I drove through your general area 2 weeks ago on the way to Yosemite, it all looks like it's one smoldering cig. butt away from all going up in flames. I thought TX was dry......

This will probably be the last chance Colon has to attract attention.

ie. Since the Super Bowl he played in. (nick named by me as the Har-Bowl) he has not played well and has been benched. The niners have a coach now that can exploit Colon's talents best but now he has a 'dead arm". I don't see him lasting more than 2 years in the NFL now.

Hey maybe he can join a Canadian football team. I'll pay for the bus fare.

I'm an active duty US Service member and while I don't agree with how he's doing it I support his right to free speech and peaceful dissension. That is, after all, what this country is founded on.
I'm sure not every vet agrees with me and that's okay. I put on the uniform for everybody, not just for those who agree with me.
Oh, I'm caucasian [Scotch-Irish, American]
