Hey, everyone is entitled to their opinion. However, IMO he's in no place right now in his career to be a role-model/spokesman.

Bob, I agree. He is just a person playing a stoopid game.

Maybe he can pay his electricity bill with his bullshit symbolism too?

A stupid game for stupid people who want stupid quarterbacks to throw a stupid f*#king ball.... for money.

Maybe they won't pay him any more, if they don't like his symbolism?

Jackie Robinson, Ali, John Carlos and others African Americans have done the same and still this country is gunning down African Americans.


But little shits like this basically walk.

I don't think he has to worry about that.

It's about showing respect to our veterans... dumbass.

CK is spoiled little brat. Instead doing something honorable... something to move the conversation forward... he acts like a whiny d#@&%ebag.

Nearly all of the gunning down is being done by African Americans.

Hmmm.

Exactly. He has nothing to risk, certainly not his career. Brave Ulysses.

If someone doesn't wave the flag, he/she doesn't respect veterans.

Stupid assumption.

How dare you leave out Tommie Smith, one of my heroes when I was in high school, since he grew up in Lemoore, not far from here! After all, it was Smith who won the 200 meters in world record time with an injured leg.

Moreover, Smith ran for San Jose State. I admit to retaining an animus against the NCAA because of the racist sanctions they imposed on SJS, more because of Smith than of Carlos.

Seriously, though, what did Jackie Robinson do to disrespect a symbol of the United States?

Again, I really don't care what entertainers say or think unless they become candidates for public office. CK's antics simply can't excite me.

JohnE...There I was, the black grandson of a slave, the son of a black sharecropper, part of a historic occasion, a symbolic hero to my people. The air was sparkling. The sunlight was warm. The band struck up the national anthem. The flag billowed in the wind. It should have been a glorious moment for me as the stirring words of the national anthem poured from the stands. Perhaps, it was, but then again, perhaps, the anthem could be called the theme song for a drama called The Noble Experiment. Today, as I look back on that opening game of my first world series, I must tell you that it was Mr. Rickey’s drama and that I was only a principal actor. As I write this twenty years later, I cannot stand and sing the anthem. I cannot salute the flag; I know that I am a black man in a white world. In 1972, in 1947, at my birth in 1919, I know that I never had it made.

Why is a national anthem played at a commercial sports event anyway?

Football is a war game? Hell, the Olympics are war games. They play the f*#k out of national anthems. The recruiting starts at a very early age.

Ali paid a heavy price for his symbolism. I can respect that.

My 3-tour Afghanistan war vet nephew cannot. He said so. I can respect that too.

Me, I thought Ali showed guts. Dunno about this Caepernick guy, time will tell.

Reilly, that's a great point about LeBron sending 1,000 kids to college.
In fact, every motherlicker who makes over xx millions should do it, starting with Mr Everything Is So Gawdamn Dark In America Trump.

We have a 1st amendment that protects his right to speech and religion. I served in the US Army to protect those rights among others.

As long as Kaepernick can continue to accept the negative feedback without complaining "foul", I have no problem with his decision. It's his right.

I don't understand required public displays of patriotism, is it to root out the traitors? I decided to stop saying the pledge of allegiance in jr. HS and fortunately my teacher saw no reason to make a big deal of it, she just let me sit there. How I feel about America, God, or apple pie is nobodies business but mine.
