A Story Of Two Protests: Colin Kaepernick VS Olympian Vera Caslavska [VIDEOS]

The news and social media has been inundated with stories and opinions regarding Colin Kaepernick’s sit down protest of the National Anthem. As we reported here, he offered his reasons why. Subsequently, he offered additional reasons for his protest.

Given what he said above, Kaepernick is using that song as a scapegoat for what he’s really protesting, which is the supposed oppression of police brutality. Well, protesting is hard. Protesting can be dangerous. Protesting can have far-reaching consequences. Martin Luther King Jr is a prime example of one who, knowing the consequences, chose to do the hard thing anyway.
