Colin Kaepernick, a quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, has generated a lot of controversy about his refusal to stand for the national anthem because he thinks America is racist and the police officers have a bounty on Blacks.
“You have Hillary who has called black teens or black kids super predators, you Donald Trump was openly racist. We have presidential candidate who is deleted emails and done things illegally… That doesn’t make sense to me because if that was any other person you’d be in prison. So, what is this country really standing for?
There’s a lot of things that need to change. One specifically? Police brutality. There’s people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable. People are being given paid leave for killing people. That’s not right. That’s not right by anyone’s standards.”
Needless to say he’s got a lot of support from people like Barack Obama and the thugs at #BlackLivesMatter. He’s also taken some heat from police organizations around the nation and especially from this one Gold Star mom.
We’ll let you be the judge about who is standing on the moral high ground here.
