Do you agree with former Marines that Kaepernick is a national disgrace?
“[Kaepernick] knew what he was getting into when he decided to kneel and now he’s going to go ahead and capitalize" on his decision. He accused the former NFL quarterback of "essentially extorting the black community and using Nike as his little shiny horse, if you will, to ride in on."

Kaepernick is a national hero bringing awareness to racial inequality and injustice in America. He exercised his protected first amendment rights to protest and bring awareness to an important issue.

What former marines? British? Who's kuprrnick? He "extorted" the "black commumity"?
All Sharpton and Jessie Jackson haven't been broadcasting like they do so no.
Whatever you are writing about is imaginary and hasn't affected a community at all.
Now cow murdering fast food does like maaaacdonalds. Cow murdering fast food does because it shows your " black community" as a hogish bunch of zitheads." Nike"? They sell shoes at exorbitant prices.You layabouts.Was your question meant for a tiny little group of layabouts?

This country was founded on rebellion. Anybody that condemns acts of (not even violent) rebellion like ‘taking a knee’ during an arbitrarily imposed anthem at a sporting event (which doesn’t even have any relevancy to a spectator sporting event to begin with) should go live in N. Korea where such dissent will automatically earn you the right to be tied to a pole and have an anti-aircraft missile shot at you at point blank range, or be beat into a brain-damaged coma like Otto Warmbier was for stealing a propaganda poster from a hotel as a souvenir. You’d be right at home there.

When Kaepernick started kneeling a few years ago, it could have gone away if he were ignored. I still take the position that he has a right to put on this performance, but he has no right to demand attention nor a job because he thrives on publicity.

I agree with former Marines who think he has a right to protest peacefully and who don't equate kneeling during the anthem with disrespecting soldiers.
I also agree with former Marines who think bad cops give all cops a bad name and disgrace all Americans, especially the ones who fight to protect our freedom and liberty.

I think he's a untalented QB (relativity speaking) with a big ego. No teams want to pick him up due to his lack of skills and his antics. But he will cry racism is the reason until he's blue in the face.

Kaepernick is a hero who is standing up to the racial injustices of American society. Of course republicans would hate him for this.

Kaepernick is a clown with an Afro. Adam Schiff is a national disgrace.
