The Kaepernick-National Anthem Debacle

The Kaepernick-National Anthem Debacle

Wes Keefer- Chief Keefe , Goal Line Stand on 

"We have the right to free speech and the players in the NFL aren't causing any harm or breaking any rules or laws. While I feel that Colin Kaepernick was endearing in his protest, I also think there is a part of him that did it in desperation of keeping his job. It's just too much of a coincidence. This protest has raised money for those affected by these tragic events and has also gained support and awareness. I recently attended a NFL game and during the anthem, not one person in the stadium knelt or sat throughout the performance. Even though everyone has stated that it is in no way will-ill towards our military and veterans, our flag does still represents our freedom and those who provide it. Doing anything that slightly disrespects the flag, disrespects our soldiers."
