So imagine the guts it took for Kaepernick to do what he did, going against his piers. And taking on national backlash and losing income from it.
Kapernick is a true hero; at great personal sacrifice to his career and at the risk of violent retaliation from gun-clenching racists and a banana republic, he decided to take a 'stand' by kneeling. He is on the right side of history, but rarely does being on the right side of history bring praise in the here and now. Well, that ends now: he has my praise. Well done, good sir, and keep fighting the good fight.
