The San Francisco 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick Kneeled So That We May All Stand Taller

Faith Barksdale

It’s hard to speak with your face pressed against concrete. Or when you can’t breathe. Or with a broken neck. And even when you manage to speak, people in power seek to silence you. Just ask the San Francisco 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick.

Amen ...

National anthem bullshit:

Sitting down during the anthem is a freedom of expression—a right guarenteed under the constitution.no one is asking anyone to like it. It's a RIGHT .... it's protected, it's what all this sacrifice has been about. As opposed to the mindless aquiessence to some standard imposed upon us by the media and political elite. Think for yourself.

The Military and Intelligence Entities believe that Corporate Professional Sports is theirs alone, to use for Recruitment and Propaganda, and get Mightily Pissed when someone else Horns In On Their Territory.

Exactly.
This Bullshit Disconnect has been used on us since the Viet Nam Era,

When I was in Junior High School, a Jehovah's Witness classmate would not recite the Pledge of Allegiance during Assembly and was humiliatingly singled out and taken to the Principal's office.

There were no further repercussions for him when it was understood that he was refusing on Religious grounds.

He was a gentle kid, didn't tell any of us ahead of time, and I remember thinking that it took a whole lot of guts for him to have done what he did.
