Of course you've all heard the news by now. San Franciso 49ers quarterback Colin Kapernick refused to stand during the national anthem in protest and it caused a national firestorm. Kapernick said,
"People don't realize what's really going on in this country. There are a lot things that are going on that are unjust. People aren't being held accountable for. And that's something that needs to change. That's something that this country stands for freedom, liberty and justice for all. And it's not happening for all right now."
Kapernick is 100% accurate and absolutely right. America has always turned a blind eye when it comes to the lives of people of color. More concerned with pledging blind allegiance to a flag than pledging allegiance to the preservation of human life.
