Colin Kaepernick took a knee. NBA players wore “I Can't Breathe” shirts. The world's biggest sports stars have been protesting police brutality and racial injustice for years.

Nobody initially paid him any attention. Nearly four years ago, when Colin Kaepernick took a seat during the national anthem before a preseason NFL game, his silent protest that would eventually shake the world of sports went unnoticed. Not until the third game, when a grainy picture of his peaceful demonstration began to spread, was the San Francisco 49ers quarterback asked why he wasn’t standing.

“Ultimately it’s to bring awareness and make people realize what’s really going on in this country,” Kaepernick said at the time....

And conservative publications like yours condemned him. So for those keeping score at home, that’s: -You’re a thug for protesting peacefully. -You’re a thug for NOT protesting peacefully. -In short, you’re a thug no matter what. 🤦‍♂️🤬 BlackLivesMatter

Now this Kap’s protest... y’all could do better

But kneeling will hurt our troops feelings,😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

Terrorizes,,,treat as such

White American is scared for their stuff! That’s what’s being burnt down. Stuff! Black America’s lives have been burning down in the injustices SHRINED in the the great American INSTITUTIONS for centuries!

White men die 10x more at the hands of police than black. But that doesn't fit the narrative here

Criminal? yes. racist? Can't tell. Two of the other cops were Asian, and the white cops wife was Asian.The fact that he is charged is proof that the justice system works.Let's stop jumping to conclusions and burning down our cities.i also don't think looting isa democratic right

Kaepernick is a fraud who took to protesting when he couldn't make it with the Niners!!

2/3. I hope that the “world’s biggest sports stars” speak out against the violence and destruction going on now. Collin Kaepernick’sProtest?!?!?! Who the hell came up with that?!?! It’s sad that the media can,and want to!, create heroes where none exist.

Worthless communists rioting is not a protest. communism

francismmaxwell tell the story, do the documentary

Which ones are calling for an end to the Looting and Rioting?

America can't ignore the problem away. Governments follow. Give government more to follow. More protest until they follow the right thing.

The article was silent on whether they supported any of the numerous 501(c) police reform advocacy groups. Did they do that or was their effort limited to t-shirts and social media?

A 6 year FBI study conducted between 2007-'12 found that, on average, police kill 400 people every year in America. Only 25% involved blacks killed by white police officers. Between 8-9000 blacks are murdered each year - 93% by other blacks. But don't let facts get in the way.

Uh no not years it’s a resurgence nothing like the 60’s

He is a joke. Stop trying to make him a hero.

and that is your excuse for what is happening now...

Yeah kapernick is the mastermind behind nationwide riots FAKE NEWS!!!

He’s real good at taking a knee he probably goes into the locker rooms in America and takes two knees to the ground to commit sexual acts with his coworkers this is a sick communist bastard

Will they protest protester brutality too?

sport stars yes but sport organizations hell no they all cowards to the dollar.

He had one good season. He was an ok quarterback. Tom Brady is the goat

America’s two worlds: GOP destroy Kaepernick for taking a knee in peaceful protest. President makes it about socialism and race. White people storm state capitols with AK 47s and the GOP celebrates and threatens. America is systemically racist and the GOP leads the effort

and you've been tearing them down for it for years

And they ask why we can’t be peaceful. YOU DONT LISTEN.

SOLIDARITY AGAINST FASCISM! THE END OF RACISM!
