Once again, before last night's game Colin Kaepernick didn't stand for the national anthem. A few things were different this time around though, he didn't sit on the bench, this time he took a knee instead. I thought this actually shined a way better perception on the way it looked as a protest, I think it was much more respectful of him to do it that way, and the troops will appreciate that he changed the way he went about it. Kaepernick has said this isn't about the troops at all and that he thinks people are receiving this the wrong way. Well, the flag and the military are identified by the people as one, so when he sat down during the National anthem, it was perceived by the people that he's disrespecting our troops. It's tough to see someone do that and not think it's disrespectful to the people that give their lives for this country. Everyone is looking at it differently, some military personnel are standing up for Kaepernick, and some probably wish they could burn him alive. Anyways, besides for him changing his approach to the protest, he was also joined by teammate Eric Reid. The only other teammate to kneel by Kaepernick's side, Reid said "this is bigger than football" which it is, this story has dominated the news this entire week. Many don't agree with Kaepernick or what he's doing, the protest he's doing though, was executed to perfection. He has stirred up so much controversy that EVERYONE is talking about this, and thats exactly what you want your protest to do. When Melo, Cp3, Dwade, and Lebron did their speech at the Espy's, we talked about it for a day. What Colin Kaepernick has done, is start a movement that could last an entire football season. I have to respect that, he's made one of the biggest stories of the year, everyone is weighing in on this, maybe shit will actually get done now because of it. When he wears socks with cops depicted as pigs he looks like a child, but then he turns right around and says he will donate the first million he makes this year to communities that need help. So, I really don't know where I even stand on this issue because some things he does I agree with and some things he does I'm like how immature is this guy. I don't think you have to necessarily agree or disagree completely though, why can't I just appreciate the good from what he's doing, and ignore the bad. Kaepernick is going to step on some toes, that's what happens when you protest something, people aren't going to like you. Kaepernick did well enough last night to the point he probably will be the number 2 QB. If that's the case this will continue the entire football season unless something is resolved. My guess, more and more people will start joining in on the protest as well, and this could become a much bigger deal than it is right now.
