Hate on Kneeling Down for Rights

Throughout the NFL pre-season and now regular season, Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback for the San Francisco’s 49ERS refused to stand when every other person was standing during the National Anthem, along with other team mates. He’s getting hate from all over the country for what some call “Indecent” and others call “The right thing to do.” He later explains why he did this to NFL Media. “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way.
There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.” Colin Kaepernick has his own opinion just as you and I and we don’t get hate for what we believe, even in some situations when we know we are in the wrong. He as an American citizen has a right to freedom of speech and who are we to tell him that what he believes is wrong? So, do you agree or disagree with Colin Kaepernick’s decision? In my opinion, I think he justified himself but at the wrong stage.
