    Honestly, there were about 150 million Americans treating other Americans of different race appropriately way before he started his protests.

    As far as I'm concerned the American flag represents far more amazing people than trash, and not standing for the Anthem is judging many over the actions of a few. Sounds like stereotyping to me.

    You're missing the point completely here - no one is telling you how you should feel (Mr. Boyer himself refuses to participate), it's simply a clear explanation as to why it's happening.

    You can be angry that the sun rose this morning, but that doesn't change why it rose.

    Just shared this as so many here are so wrapped up in this story and seemingly missing the entire point of it. Want to be angry because you're missing the intent of the protest? By all means, that's as much your right as it's his to protest. But it's projection (at best) to suggest anyone is trying to force you to receive the message in any way.

    Yes, they are.

    Just in case you have shared the Pat Tillman Nike meme, you should know that his wife doesnít want you doing that.

    I covered that when it was posted on the meme thread. Pretty standard for GOP to trash a war hero I guess..

    Countless times you hear," It's not the military, it's the Injustice. It's not every police officer, it's the inequality." If you have to correct or explain your protest I think the method of protest is a little off. The boycotts and sit ins of the Civil Rights Movement needed no explanation or clarification.

    People have willfully ignored and / or distorted the reasons behind protests as long as there have been protests. As 92 clearly showed above, it's white-washing history to suggest the CRM was immediately understood by white people. In fact, they were constantly accused of any number of nasty things for simply (and peacefully) asking for equality.

    People of color block streets, start fires, ransack and loot and people understandably suggest this is not how you promote your message. Now we have a man of color kneeling during the anthem - as peaceful protest as one could ever desire - and he's castigated for it. How exactly should someone protest a perceived injustice?

    The message has been made clear over and over: they shouldn't. Whether we're talking about women, blacks, gays, etc., the privileged majority always patronizes minorities from a selfish and ignorant perch. Women with political opinions made men uncomfortable, so they were demonized. Blacks deigning to send their kids to well-funded schools made whites uncomfortable, so they were lynched. Gays who wanted to hold hands on the sidewalk made straight people uncomfortable, so they were murdered.

    The privileged majority always says just keep your head down and don't provoke, as if avoidance has ever solved a problem of significance. It's the same cycle over and over, and it's obvious who falls on the right side of this current incarnation, and who falls on the wrong one.

    How about not picking a symbol that represents far more good than bad?

    There are specific examples of of brutality and inequality, put them on a shirt. He's made a ton of money off this, I'm sure he can swing it. Capernick is photographed a lot. People will Google it, much like they Googled Tim Tebow's eye black. Awareness will be raised. Kneeling for the Anthem has polarized him, the reactions are either positive or negative. Nobody is curious or on the fence regarding him.
