    Kap's career has been ruined by Americans because of something he believed in while Tillman's life was taken by Americans because of something he believed in.

    Neil,

    Nobody has a problem with Kap having a belief.
    They just don't want him to display it on the playing field.

    But that is the problem.

    Kap wasn't happy with innocent black people being killed by the police. He believed the system was failing black people and wanted to highlight this in front of all americans. America should have taken notice and issued change. They didn't. Kap and anyone else who knelt were vilified. And innocent black people have continued to be killed since then.

    Not wanting to see the protests on the playing field is not wanting to deal with the problem - out of sight, out of mind. This isn't good enough.

    I know a lot of Americans are proud about the flag. So stop the racist deaths. That's Kap's message. Bring real equality off the field then black people will feel equal on the field and stop protesting.

    Oh please 🙄

    Kapearnick was tired of the cameras in his face because he was downgraded to a back up quarterback so he came up with a stunt.

    Agreed.

    Where is Kap's money if he wants to help poor black kids?

    How many black people get killed by police each year? How many white people?

    Tillman a hero?

    I read the book about him.
    He gave up football with its money and fame to go over there and get his head blown off (literally) by his own troops.

    I wouldn't say hero.
    A patriot yes, but not a hero.

    Kaepernick is a clown.
