Barack Obama has never had a problem denigrating this great nation in a number of ways, so it is no surprise he supports Kaepernick.
Obama says NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick has the constitutional right to make a statement by refusing to stand for the refusal to stand for the national anthem.
Obama made the comments in response to a question during a press conference after the G20 summit in Hangzhou, China.
Obama is correct. Kaepernick has the constitutional right to not stand for the anthem and use his bully pulpit to make his stand. But beware when you do it in the midst of a patriotic crowd!
The real problem is that both Obama and Kaepernick are wrong on the facts. The police are not out in droves targeting black people. It is just not happening!
You cannot sanitize the world of it’s problems.
You will sometimes have bad cops that overstep. No matter how hard you try, you will never get rid of all the bad cops.
But it is all a part of a false narrative. It always has been and Kaepernick is feeding it without looking at the facts.
There are 350 million people in this country and unnecessary shootings of ANYONE sits at around 1200 a year. That is not a huge problem, that is a very low number. Let’s let Kaepernick move to a country where the authorities abuse everyone!
Colin Kaepernick has decided to take his last stand on the field to protest how unfair the US is to blacks.
He seems to think all is unfair? I see him living in a multi-million dollar mansion, living the high-life of fame and fortune, and spewing the false narrative that cops all over are shooting unarmed people. INSANITY!
He has disrespected the flag, disrespected this country, and disrespected the wonderful law enforcement who has protected his big butt for his entire lifetime!
