San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand up for the national anthem at a preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. He said he was protesting the country's treatment of people of color.
I find his action a total disgrace. Many men and women have died to give Colin Kaepernick the freedoms he enjoys today.
It is true he has the right to say and do what he wants as long as his actions do not physically hurt others, but not standing up for our national anthem is an insult to all Americans who believe in the USA.
