We have all heard/read by now that San Francisco QB, Colin Kaepernick, sat down during the playing of the nation anthem. Well, like the title states, that disgusts me. This guy is so far off on his reasoning why he did not stand and honor this country.
"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."
That is what Kaepernick had to say for himself. Seriously? Does he not get what the national anthem is about? It isn not about race, it is not about murders, or any of that crap.
The national anthem is about paying your respects to the men and women of the military. Specially the ones that died to protect our freedom. This fricken guy is an NFL player making millions of dollars...at the very least he should be standing and paying his respects for that. Without our military he would not have that opportunity.
Kaepernick clearly does not know the true meaning of the national anthem. It has nothing to do with color. NOTHING.
Kick this guy out of the country...If he can't recognize how good he has it, and the things it took to get him there...just kick him out
Let him go appreciate how "awesome" it is to live anywhere but America...
